Geometric Scarf Using Blue Sky Extra

Geometric Scarf Using Blue Sky Extra

"Extra-dimensional stitches."

In our Geometric Scarf, alternating knit and purl stitches creates recurrent, graphic triangles. The ceaseless geometry seems to give this generously scaled scarf an extra dimension! Inspired by a traditional Scottish stitch, it still exhibits a modern style.

Knit in hearty, lush, and lofty Blue Sky Fibers Extra, the Geometric Scarf has a casually elegant drape without weighing you down. A soft, woolly alpaca-merino blend, Extra goes the extra mile in everything from its bountiful yardage and additional grams—unusual in an Aran-weight skein—to its versatility.
