Après Big White

Après Big White is a free scarf pattern knit in the traditional fishermen’s rib stitch that creates a wonderful cozy, plush, soft, light fabric. Big White is the name of our much loved local ski area, which is famous for its deep powder and bright skies. Apres Big White is a great scarf to wear anywhere for a stylish look or to fight off the winter chill.  Big enough to wear as a wrap, the finished Size of this scarf is 12″ x 74″.  The dimensions can be easily adjusted to suit your style by adding or subtracting stitches.  The size we made used 4 skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky.  With wet blocking the scarf relaxes and grows.  Pattern is written below for you to read or is available as a PDF download.

Wear Apres Big White as a cosy wrap, cowl or scarf. Easy to make to any size that you wish.

Andean Mist 

Andean Mist is an ethereal blend of super fine baby suri alpaca and mulberry silk for luxe knits that knit up light as air.  It really is rather heavenly and we have to thank the Suri Alpaca for providing us with such a nice fibre.  How wonderful they have renewable coats of such luscious fibre that spins up into light, lofty, silky goodness.
