Alpaca Chunky Softness

Since the fall shipment from Rowan has arrived their new yarn Alpaca Chunky has called out to me to be knit. The book Winter Warmers has a lot of inspiration but I wanted to make something super easy and quick. I thought of the Feroche Brioche that Margaux of tentenknits designed in 2008 and thought what if we did garter stitch, longer & added buttonholes but only 1 button. Viola, the Alpaca Chunky scarf/infinity was born.

Above it is worn tight to the neck with the button holding it together. You can double it over & pull the ends through, or make it a longer infinity scarf thanks to the button & buttonholes. You can make it with a bunch of different chunky yarns like Rowan Big Wool or Toboggan from Classic Elite.

Come by and try it on!
