Swath yourself in the glorious colors of Felted Tweed. The bold graphic design by Kaffe Fassett shows off the lively colors of this yarn, which is a blend of 50% Merino wool, 25% alpaca, and 25% viscose. The yarn is slightly pre-felted, for a subtle hazy surface that is spiked with contrast flecks. The scarf is knit primarily in stockinette stitch, with a moss stitch border on all four sides that is worked as the scarf is knit. The color placement is shown on a large, clear chart.
The finished wrap measures 19.75" x 69.75". It can be machine washed and dried flat. Rowan has assigned this project a skill level of intermediate.
