This wonderful scarf/wrap was made by casting on 160 stitches onto a 10 1/2 needles and knitting a garter stitch until out of yarn. At the beginning of each row I cut the old yarn, leaving an 8 inch tail and tied on the new yarn, leaving an 8 inch tail. It was great not having to attach fringe and I love the slanted ends. The scarf is about 7 feet long and 13 inches wide....and soft as a cloud.
This is a close-up of a Super Long Scarf Wrap made from a Multi-colored kit in the Pansy Colorway that I bought from Three Waters Farm at the 2007 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. It consisted of three different yarns: Alpaca wool, alpaca boucle, and mohair boucle. I colors are blues, purples, and yellows.
