It’s such a pleasure to share this quick, simple and easy Winter Berry Delight Scarf with you! A few months ago I went to a local yarn store in Atlanta. It was lots of fun as always, and I discovered this cool looking yarn from Universal Yarn called Bamboo Bloom Handpaints! It was the first time I had seen this beautiful yarn that’s full of texture. It’s what I would call a “roving” yarn which means there are parts of the yarn which are thick while other parts are thin.
Once I started playing around with the yarn, I realized that I should really design something pretty simple because the yarn is going to do all the work for you. I was right don’t you think?
The parts of the yarn that are thicker seemed to take on a “berry” type look hence the name Winter Berry Delight! I should really thank Trish for the name as I asked the ELKies (members of the ELK Studio Facebook Group) for suggestions!
I hope you’ll check out the yarn and tell them ELK Studio sent ya!
