Alexandra's Airplane Scarf Pattern

Alexandra's Airplane Scarf Pattern

“Traveling joyfully.”

Our models at the Bainbridge Island ferry dock are warm and stylish in an Alexandra's Airplane Scarf.

Alexandra Dane, a Boston-based author and long-time Churchmouse friend, stopped by one day wearing a scarf that turned our heads. We just had to make it a pattern to share! Thanks, Alex! We also added instructions for placing beads and made a web page for the Beaded version. 

ou'll find that it's a perfect airplane project -- both to knit and to wear en route! It's just the kind of thing we love -- simple, simple, simple, and all about the color!
