Finale: Candle Flame 烛光

This is closer to the true color.

Project:  Candle Flame 烛光
Pattern Candle Flame Scarf by Doris Formby (free Ravelry download)
Yarn:  Dax Alpaca, DK weight 100% alpaca
Yardage:  250 yards (2 balls), used every inch
Needles: Size 9
Cast on: December 26, 2013
Cast off: December 31, 2013
Cost: About $25

Notes: I used size 9 needles for this DK weight yarn to give the scarf more loft, and to stretch out the limited yardage because I really wanted a scarf. It still turned out a bit short so I sewed the ends together and turned it into a cowl. This was knitted during my post holiday Downton Abbey marathon (I watched all three seasons on Amazon Prime in about a week). This cowl will always remind me of Lady Mary or Anna.

Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blogTami's blog, and leave me a comment!

I also love this as a cowl - and that colorway is just awesome. There are all kinds of FOs this week. :)

I love this as a cowl and the color is gorgeous! I always wonder about going up the needle sizes and how it will affect the pattern. I know, I know, it's all about gauge.
