Hypoteneuse Scarf


My new favorite yarn: handspun alpaca that I got at the fiber festival in North Carolina last fall. Here's what I made with it. The pattern is Anne Hanson's "Hypoteneuse" scarf (it can also be a shawl). This yarn is so soft and warm that I want this scarf to last forever! Honestly, everyone should have something that feels this good to wrap around their neck.

It was so much fun to knit that I made another one for my husband . . . in a manly brown alpaca/wool mix.


You can order the pattern from Anne's website "Knitspot."
