Alpaca Shawl

My daughter sent me a picture of shawl that she saw at a store and asked me to make it for her.  I searched for a similar pattern but I was not able to find the right one so I decide to try it on my own and I came up with this pattern.  It's a very cozy shawl that works well on cold winter nights at home or for a night out on the town.

Any type of  bulky yarn - I used 100% Alpaca for mine
Needle size 15

Cast on 1, 
Row 1:Right side K1 f&b
Row 2: Purl
Row 3:K1 f&b, K1
Row4: purl
Row 5:K1 f&b,K1,K1 f&b - So the first and last stitch of the row should be K1 f&b.  The middle stitches should all be just K1.
Continue with Row 4 and Row 5 until you reach the perfect size.

Triangle Scarf

This scarf is made from a series of triangles, worked in short rows, that are attached to each other. I made multiple scarves using this speedy pattern with many types of yarns.

Neck Warmer

I saw this pattern in a knitting store in Chicago.  I really liked it, so I got the yarn, the red one is 100% cashmere and the pink one is 80% Alpaca/20% wool.  This was a very easy pattern to make, in total it took me about 2 hours to knitt.  Its a great winter weather neck warmer as both materials are soft and super warm!!!
