Bainbridge Scarf - late posted Christmas effort.
I made this Bainbridge Scarf for my mums for Christmas, out of a single skein of gorgeous alpaca yarn. She loved it and I'm certain she'll get lots of use out of it, when winter rolls around.
This pattern was the first I found and fell in love with on Ravelry, first in my queue, I was going to use some 8ply hand dyed, but the alpaca is so soft and snuggly and lovely and I know she'll be able to wear the off-white tucked into her khaki work shirts or dressed up with her black wool coat.
Pattern: Bainbridge Scarf, by MintyFresh
Modifications: I only wanted to use one skein (it's discontinued and I'm hoarding the other five! Five more gift Bainbridges!) so I made it a little less deep and made the ties shorter.
Yarn: Plymouth Indiecita Alpaca 4-ply Worsted in Off-White
Needles: 3.75mm (US 5) circ
Made for: mumsie
