produce of NL: Sea scarf

A scarf made up of two types of yarn. One moss green, terribly soft, drapy and even (content: cashmere, merino wool and microfiber). The other sea blue, a different type of soft, structured, light and tweedy (content: alpaca, merino wool and viscose). These two yarns are knitted in blocks and stripes, each one contrasting with the previous because of its feel, color and texture. The tweedy parts have occasional garter stitch ridges in various patterns, the soft cashmere parts just flaunt their perfection in straight blocks of stockinette.

The whole thing is knitted with garter stitch edges (to prevent curling) and pressed to finally become a very long scarf, warm but light, in two colors that complement each other beautifully.

It fits around the neck two times easily and can also be worn double.

This is my first original design. However terribly simple it may be, this simplicity gives it a classic style that I love. I am very happy with it.

I already finished another object this week that of course will make it’s appearance here, but this post is for my sea scarf alone.
