With the Holiday season pretty much upon us and the crazy early Winter weather, I found myself wanting to knit something with one of my FAVORITE yarns… Cascade Eco Wool. I just can’t get over the millions of colors, the beautiful hand and the super generous yardage! (478 yards, to be exact.)
If there’s one thing I hate, it’s hundreds of tails to weave in. Eco Wool is the answer to my dreams. And since it’s 100% Wool, you can also use a “felted” join if you do find yourself having to join another hank.
For this new design, I wanted a garment that was versatile, wear-with-ease and WARM. Eco Wool is the perfect platform. This scarf uses TWO hanks of Eco Wool but leaves plenty of yardage for making up a pretty pair of mittens to match. (That’s another pattern coming soon!)
The scarf itself is nice and long for wrapping around but you can easily knit more repeats to lengthen it further. The hood is picked up and knit flat, then seamed at the top.
Visions of beautiful Elves gracefully tiptoeing through the woods entered my head when creating this pattern. So I think the name fits perfectly! This scarf would be great for your man-elves as well. 😉 It would be gorgeous in a deep, dark gunmetal color. It’s up to you!
