Blocks of Color Scarf by Nadine Curtis

I couldn’t decide on just one colour of the Blue Sky Alpacas Metalico that came in yesterday so figured that all of them must be the correct answer. I came home and cast on the Blocks of Color Scarf by Nadine Curtis – this free pattern will neatly incorporate one ball of all six available colours. Though this is a simple scarf, I think it will be highly effective in showing off the sleek luster of this yarn and, because it’s knit in the round (basically a tube) it will always be “right side out”. This yarn is soft, soft, soft – if you’re looking for a classic cozy scarf for winter, look no further!

Starting with the Opal colourway – it shimmers!

(That’s the Basalt scarf / wrap from Antonia Shankland in The Fibre Company Road to China Light on the right – more about that soon! A beautifully crafted Bigger Boxy Bag from ZigZag Stiches in the background – a perfect carry-all for most projects. Lots in stock with more shipping this week).
