Tree Bark Scarf


© Tree Bark Scarf

This scarf is inspired by 211 ladder & rib swatch
from "Stitchionary 1: Knit & Purl" by Vogue Knitting.
The original swatch does not have a balanced ladder
and repeats making it less appealing for a scarf.

Alpaca with a Twist, Baby Twist,
100% Baby Alpaca, 110 yards/50 grams,
Hand wash and dry flat.
Color # 0294/Bark, Lot # 79125,  4 x Skeins
  U
S6 4.0mm

A gift for CJ.
