Oh that sweet summer crush that makes you feel light and at ease! It's the exact sentiment captured in this scarf, airy and weightless, but would make you feel warm too. Make it come to life with the free pattern below, or even better, get the ad-free printable PDF pattern here!
My dear friend Coraline found herself in a bit of a whirlwind after her sister's wedding last year and she's continuing her sabbatical in South America. She hasn't kept in touch much and she did apologize for not updating us. It seems she met someone special on the cruise ship on her way to Rio – lucky girl.
Most of Coraline's time has been spent writing and working on a local private property that raises laying chickens for sale and barter in Angra dos Reis. She says it is both gorgeous and serene. (Her new beau has extended his residency at a biological reserve nearby and they get to spend a few hours a week together. She is very fond of him and hinting she may be willing to modify her itinerary.)
She's been on sabbatical for nearly a year now without any hint as to when she will return home. Nonetheless, I miss her and sent her this lovely crochet scarf that I made from 100% silk yarn. It's light enough that she can wear it no matter the temperature.
