Woodsmoke Scarf

Pattern: Woodsmoke Scarf from Brave New Knits
Designer: Jared Flood
Yarn: Quince and Co. Chickadee: Glacier, 1 skein and Bird's Egg, 2 skeins
Needles: US 6 circular and US 6 double pointed

This scarf looks more complicated to knit than it was. I love the simple garter center and the way it contrasts with the lace edging. The yarn I used is Chickadee from Quince and Co. It is a soft and springy yarn and comes in beautiful colors. It's 100% American Wool that is spun in New England. I highly recommend trying it, and checking out the Quince and Co. web site. There you will find lots of great patterns and yarns. I'm planning on making this sweater after the holidays.

This scarf will be a gift for my mother. Finished just in time!
