Iced Caramel Macchiato Scarf

The colors of this scarf remind me of my favorite Starbucks drink, an iced caramel macchiato. Knit with Fisherman's rib, this scarf has lovely drape and is warm and lofty.

I used almost two skeins of Lion Brand Scarfie in Cream/Taupe with size 11 needles. There were a couple breaks and knots in the yarn, so I had to pull out yarn until I got to the right color again, but I was able to make the most of the skeins without wasting much.

CO 31, longtail method. If you would like to change the width, just add or subtract a multiple of two.

Row 1: k1, p1 across, ending with k1

Row 2: k1, *k1b (knit 1 below), p1; repeat from * across to last 2 sts, k1b, k1

Row 3: k1, *p1, k1b; repeat from * across to last 2 sts, p1, k1

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have reached the desired length. BO using JSSBO or another stretchy BO. Weave in any remaining tails. 

The finished scarf is 10"x87". I love the soft, gradual color changes, like the ombre caramel macchiato, and the slightly fuzzy halo the acrylic/wool blend gives this single ply yarn. 

I hope you make one of these, and enjoy. Maybe get yourself a cup of coffee while knitting, too. 
XOXO, Alyssa
