Happy New Year! Last year is behind us and the new year is still, well…., new. The shiny new newness hasn’t worn off of our Christmas gifts yet and we still like playing with them. Or at least, I do.
But what if you got new yarn for Christmas. What do you make with it? I have an idea for you. This is a free crochet pattern.
About the Yarn
I was gifted some yarn for Christmas. I got some bulky 100% baby alpaca in ivory and in a dusty rose. I also got 100% baby alpaca in worsted weight.
Just touching the yarn was luxurious. It’s so soft! I had to make something wearable. As Crystal with Bag-o-Day Crochet on YouTube says, it’s scarfable.
Oh, boy, is it scarfable!!
I wanted something I could wear close to my skin some I could feel how soft it is. While I used baby alpaca for this scarf, you can use whatever yarn you want.
When I was making it, before I wrote the pattern, I was thinking about how the rows of single crochet reminded me of the snow on gingerbread houses. The double crochet rows were like window panes. That’s how it came to be called Frosted Windows.
