Art Fibers Alfabeto Scarf

Last year, Tania gave me a skein of Art Fibers Alfabeto yarn. Lovely Fall colors, and 76% silk, 14% mohair, 250 yds. Shiny AND fuzzy!


The skein hung around on my yarn table with the handspun for a while, until I grabbed it and packed it for the last trip to Michigan in case I needed another project. I had already packed Victorian Lace Today so I could finish Lisa's wedding shawl on the plane.


After finishing the shawl, a pair of baby socks, starting a pair of socks for Nate, and knitting the baby dress and bolero, I cast on for this scarf during the last few days of the trip.


I browsed through VLT, deciding on using the edging from this (yes its a Ravelry link) pattern for the scarf. I simply used the diamond edging, adding a scalloped edge to the side on the scarf that was designed to be flat in the center of the original scarf so it would match the other edge.


The scarf was a quick knit, I worked on it once in a while over the last few weeks. The pattern was pretty intuitive once I had worked a few repeats and made for pleasant knitting.


I'm happy with the end result, I think it will be a nice Fall accessory. Right now its getting stashed in the closet until a little chill in the air arrives.
