In the studio - black and white alpaca

Scarf, alpaca, rib variation; size 5, 3.75mm bamboo needles, 14 inches

This is wonderful undyed alpaca, something near to a fingering weight, so the small needles make the fabric substantive. I am doing a k3, p3 rib and varying it every seven rows so that it forms a type of checkered pattern. With the black and white variation in the yarn the surface busy-ness is wonderful!
