#Mashup – Rainier Scarf

The Yarn

Company/Store: Cascade Yarns Pure Alpaca
Colorway: 3014 – Rainier Heather
Weight/Length: Worsted Weight/220 yards x 2 skeins
Material: 100% Baby Alpaca


I got this yarn awhile back and could not get over how much I loved the color. It is mainly a medium heather purple color but it has specks of blue, yellow, red and orange in it. So soft too, the only yarn condition I hold higher than how much I like the color.  Although it is listed as a medium weight 4, I feel its on the thinner side of that compared to others I have that list it as a 4. I wanted to find a pattern that was not too heavy so it could be worn more of the year.

After making a bunch of things for friends lately I opted to make something with this yarn for myself, as a pat on the back for starting my shop, selling at fairs and doing much better than I ever thought possible in sales. I hope I continue to grow in this craft on and upwards as I gain more experience. So this is where I say, Go Me!

The Pattern

Name: Richelieu Scarf (Ravelry Link)
Author: Wolf Crochet (link to blog and written pattern)


I like the pattern because its very basic, but looks intricate. It also works up really quickly, I have already finished 1 skein and have balled up and started the 2nd already so it should be done soon. I want to make it extra long and include the fringe the pattern has too. This will also be my first attempt at blocking my crochet pieces. I have yet to try this (I didn’t have an iron) but got a tiny iron that does steam and an ironing pad from Amazon recently so I will post some details about that process once I give it a go as well. Yay for more learning!



Thanks for stopping by!
