My latest knitting adventure!  Knitted baby alpaca neckwarmers/scarflets in grassy meadow, dusty rose, and sweet potato.



They look amazing on guys and girls, and are sooooo warm and cozy.  I'd love some feedback, what do you guys think?

(also my younger sister's modeling debut  Wink)

Those are indeed very pleasing colors. I like them all..infact, a striped one using all three would be nice.

Those are very spiffy. I especially like that they're not bulky, but would still be warm, so you can wear them with whatever. The sweet potato color is my fave.

Great idea!  I'll have to do that with the scraps!  Hate to waste all that great yarn. (:

I'm sorry, but I can't.  I don't feel comfortable sharing the pattern as I worked hard to develop the unique design for myself.  It would be different were I not trying to sell these, but I am hoping that if people like them they might consider purchasing them.  They are reasonably priced, considering that the yarn itself is rather expensive - my costs are barely covered.  Otherwise, feel free to use them as inspiration for your own unique projects, as that is why I posted them on Craftster.  I hope that makes sense.

Those are really pretty.  I love the colors.  Not to "steal" the thread, but for those who like that idea and want to maybe make their own type things... try this thread:

If nothing else, it gives more ideas on the same theme.
