Alpaca Infinity Scarf

My first CAM design:  Alpaca Infinity Scarf

This infinity scarf was inspired by my daughter Cheryl.  She loved the first one I made her with Malibrigo Yarn, a 3-ply merino wool using a pattern from Ravelry called Gap-tastic.  She asked if I could make an infinity scarf she could wrap three times around her neck.  Inspired, I decided to design a scarf with a little more variety of knitted stitches using a soft alpaca yarn.  Hate to put anything around a person’s neck that is not soft.  This scarf is very long…about 34 inches.  You can wrap it around your neck very comfortably either twice or thrice!  If you want to use a less expensive chunky yarn, Lion Brand has soft alternatives.
