Day flower scarf
This summer, my family and I went to the Folk Museum in Oslo. It is a nice place to be when the sun is shining. They also have craft stores there, practising old handy crafts. In one of the stores, they sell yarn and instructions on how to apply old techniques, etc. In this store, I found this lovely Italian yarn called Filatura Di Crosa Superior, which is a lovely blend of cashmere, silk and merino wool. It is soo soft and light, and I just had to buy some skeins. I bought two different colours, one of which was this lovely indigo.
Wondering what to make from it, I remembered a shawl I made last spring, based on a beautiful pattern I found in Barbara G. Walker's book series "A Treasury of Knitting Patterns", called the Day flower shawl. I decided to make a scarf based on the same pattern.
It is a long and thick scarf, keeping you warm on cold winter days. I made this scarf for a friend, hoping to be able to give it in time for the winter cold.
