Aran Cedar Leaf Scarf

Hello, dear readers. Please excuse my long absence! I’ve been traveling quite a bit lately and I’m afraid blogging has fallen by the wayside. The good news is that I have many knitting & fiber-related things to share, so expect several posts in the next week or so.

First up, is the Aran Cedar Leaf Scarf I finished in early October. The patten is based on the Cedar Leaf Shawlette by Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting, but with modifications for using aran weight yarn. I love this design and didn’t want to wait until Spring try it out. The scarf ended up being just over 2 meters long! It wraps around my neck several times, but doesn’t feel bulky. I’m attributing that to the DROPS Nepal (65% wool, 35% alpaca), which is one of my new favorite yarns. I will definitely knit with it again.

I agonized over the color choice. I loved the green yarn used to knit the original shawlette, but thought I should choose a color that’s more “winter appropriate.” I decided to go with green after all – that way I’ll have a little taste of Spring to get me though the chilly Norwegian winter.

The project is Raveled here and includes a list of my mods. I love this scarf. I wear it constantly!
