I used two skeins of Trabajos del Peru, 100% Pure Fine Merino Wool by Plymouth Yarn, color 001. It's a very deep rich blue that shows up just a little lighter than the actual color in these photos. Each skein is 147 yards and the size needle recommended is US 9. I used a US 10 needle because I liked the guage better. The guage isn't important as long as you like it.
We've had a lot of cold weather in Nashville over the last few weeks. This soft but warm scarf will come in very handy. Enjoy the pattern and if you like it, please leave me a comment.
