Carolyn Scarf is named for my mother. I received 2 balls of
bright orange Classic Elite Bamboo and immediately thought of
her. She loves orange, and I thought the bamboo will create a
wonderful drape and the color will be great for her.
The cascading leaves are complimented with a fun stem that
helps to add to the overall drapey effect of the scarf. Knit in two
pieces this scarf is sewn up the center to create complimenting
sides. A provisional cast on may be used if desired. This is a
fairly fast project which can be knit as long as desired.
