Bateaux Mouches Scarf Using Isager Alpaca 1

Bateaux Mouches Scarf Using Isager Alpaca 1

“Easy elegance.”

‘Bateaux-mouches’ refers to the pleasure-steamers that once floated gracefully down the Seine. So did designer Marianne Isager name this scarf for its graceful boat-like shape or its careless Parisian chic? Either way, it really epitomizes an easy, elegant charm. It’s an elongated triangle shape with a softly-curved bottom, and the loose garter stitch hardly looks like garter stitch at all!

Isager’s Alpaca 1, a 2-ply lace-weight yarn, is ideal for light accessories, like the Bateaux-Mouches Scarf. Spun in Peru, the 100% baby alpaca has a crisp hand and a downy-soft drape that feels lovely against the skin. The yarn’s fine gauge produces knitted details like no other. When your knitting’s done, don’t skip the wet-blocking step—your scarf will soften, settle, and reveal a beautiful finish.
