This month I decided to make a more traditional style scarf – something my Nana would have loved and wanted for herself. The To Nana, With Love Scarf will fit neatly beneath your coat to add some extra warm without a lot of extra bulk or length. Just enough to protect your neck and chest and keep you cosy and warm. I specifically chose this yarn to use with this stitch pattern and I am very pleased with the final scarf. Super soft and lightweight – the fabric has beautiful movement and it is warm without being heavy, or too hot to wear comfortably beneath your coat. The yarn is from Expression Fiber Arts, one of my favorite online Yarn Shops – and perfect for finding a yarn to use for a special gift. The shade is called Marine and is a Superwash Dewy DK (70% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Nylon, 10% Silk, 250 yd, 4-ply) yarn. She has beautiful colorways available if you are looking for something special for a gift you are making and you can browse them on her website here: Expression Fiber Arts.
This is just one of the Scarf of the Month Club Free Patterns for the month of April 2016!
