The Iona Arrow Scarf was designed using Lion Brand’s Shawl in a Cake in colorway Namaste Neutrals. When I first saw this yarn, I thought of my mother; hence the name which is quite similar to hers. Warm neutrals were always her favorite and I just knew I had to make her something from it. Now she is a woman who doesn't like big heavy scarves and wraps, so this lightweight fiber was perfect for her. Its made of cotton, acrylic and metallic material, a perfect blend for someone who loves the light and airy next to skin feeling.
At first I was a bit worried when working up this design because it does tend to have a fuzz factor. But after a few rows into the project, I realized the “fuzz” was adding a unique texture to the design…and I kept going. I began to fall in love, especially with the smooth subtle color changes. Not all ombres are the same, but the colors were still beautiful. I gifted it to my mother and her gigantic smile from ear to ear made me feel all sorts of happy.
Not only did she love the scarf and the pattern, but my Instagram followers as well! So here’s the short and sweet pattern for you to try. I trust it’ll make the perfect gift from you to you or a loved one! Happy Making!
