When I attended Creativation last month, you may remember me talking about meeting the fabulous people at Yarnspirations. They gave me probably 10-11 skeins of the Patons Alpaca Blend yarn. The first project I made using the yarn was the Iron Mountain Beanie bottom up and top down version. With so much of the yarn left over, I thought it would be fun to make the Southern Trellis Wrap. So, let’s remember to thank Yarnspirations on their Facebook page for providing the yarn!
You certainly need to be sure and check out the yarn because I have another surprise for all the ELKies. Since Yarnspirations is sponsoring us, they have once again given me a coupon code to share. Use ELKALPCAWRAP for a 20% discount! Ships to U.S. and Canada only. Go get your yarn today! There are 24 colors, so I’m sure you’ll find something perfect for you.
As you can see in the photos, there are a few ways you can wear this elegant design. I doubled it and wrapped it around me as a test for a scarf. Oh. My. Goodness. Talk about it being warm. I can also see putting on my favorite pair of jeans and boots to wear it as well. I think whichever way you choose….you’ll look stunning.
