The yarn is Rowan Country, an 100% wool, chunky yarn. It is a beautiful mix of reds, oranges, pinks, purples and a little green. I loved working with it. The scarf worked up incredibly quickly and slid over my bamboo hook very smoothly. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more of it!

 The scarf measures approx. 180cm by 11cm wide. I made it by making 125 chains then just treble-crocheting back and forth for 7 rows. I used the leftover yarn to make the fringe. If I was making it again, I think I would make it slightly longer and narrower.

I fell in love with this yarn when I saw it in the shop – the colours are beautiful. I used it to make a simple scarf which I plan to give to my sister-in-law for Christmas.

Another way to wear the scarf. You can see the shape of the ruffles a bit better in this one…..

A bit about the yarn: The yarn used was Wendy Allegra which is 32% Alpaca 31% Acrylic 37% Polyester. Throughout the making of the scarf I was trying to decide whether I loved or hated it and, I’m sad to say, that I’ve finally come to the conclusion that it’s not very nice! Although it looks quite pretty in these pictures, for me, it has three major drawbacks. Firstly, I’m concerned that it’s a little bit too scratchy to wear close to the skin. I have quite sensitive skin, so this could just be me! Hubby says it’s fine but it’s definately not as soft as other yarns I’ve used. Secondly, it’s a bit more hairy than I’d have liked. Perhaps I’m just being picky (after all it was quite cheap!) but I’ve got some similiarly priced mohair which is far nicer. Finally, I wasn’t keen on how much the thickness of the yarn varies. At some points its close to laceweight and at others its more like DK. In some projects this could be a good thing, but not, I think, for this scarf

The scarf can be worn in a variety of ways – wrapped round and round to form a sort of ruffled collar or just wrapped around once as in this picture.

The scarf is approximately 150cm long and 8cm wide
