alpaca on the double

Blue Sky Alpacas Sportweight is an incredibly soft and versatile yarn with over 30 colors to choose from. Sometimes, though, I want the lovely drape and warmth but without knitting at such a fine gauge. For this stripey scarf, I used the yarn doubled in 3 warm neutrals.

So attractive! So easy!

You’ll need 2 skeins each of three colors of sportweight and a US 10 40″circular needle.
Cast on 250 stitches with color#1.
Knit for 14 rows. Switch to color #2 and knit for 14 rows.
Do the same with color #3 and cast off loosely.

Wouldn’t it be fun in these combinations as well?


With this quick knit, the possibilities are endless! Enjoy!

  1. I cannot see the first 1/2 inch of printing when I click on the free patterns. Is it something with
    my computer or your layout?

  3. I made this scarf years ago when I first started knitting. I did it in black, charcoal, grey and red…..it is still one of my favorites and I’m sure it was more the yarn than my skills, but the stripes are perfect and the yarn is so deliciously soft. I added fringe with the leftover yarn. You will not be disappointed with this yarn or project.
