Alexandra's Airplane Scarf - Kidsilk Haze Version

Alexandra's Airplane Scarf - Kidsilk Haze Version

"Simply stylish."

When Boston-based author and long-time Churchmouse friend Alexandra Dane was in Seattle, she stopped by the shop one day wearing a scarf that turned our heads. We had to share it as a Churchmouse pattern! It's the perfect airplane project -- both to knit and to wear en route. You can style this sheer tube of lace-weight mohair any number of ways, and we've added an optional dusting of tiny beads for a little sparkle. It's just the kind of thing we love—simple, simple, simple, and all about the color!
