An alpaca scarf – isn’t that expensive? It would be, if you knitted a scarf that used lots of balls of yarn, but this design by Kirstie McLeod uses just one. “It’s a luxury yarn,” Kirstie says, “but you’ll find scarves on the high street costing more to buy than this does to make, and they won’t be made of British-grown pure alpaca!” Treat yourself to a bit of luxury for less than the cost of something mass-produced from lower-quality fibres. No draughts round your neck, and no bulky fabric down your front! You can download the pattern here.
