Zigzag Stripes












Pattern: Zigzag Stripes
Needles: US 5
Yarn: Peruvian Collection Quechua, from Elann
65% Alpaca, 35% Tencel
2 balls for the scarf plus a 3rd ball just for the trim
Finished Size: 4.5 inches wide, 60 inches long

This is the child's version, 39 stitches. The yarn is a pretty color but it is just barely soft enough for a scarf. It is really not the best use of either the yarn or the pattern but overall, it is nice enough.

    It is very pretty and looks plenty long and wide. Hard to believe it is the child's size. I think a lot of scarf patterns are just way too wide.
