Taming the Deep Forest Evlen Scarf

Here’s a peek at my Deep Forest Elven Hooded Scarf for Ms. Megan Kenny. It’s a lofty garment fit for an elegant Elven queen, such as Mz. Kenny.

This hooded scarf uses as much yardage as a large man’s sweater, about 2000 yards. This is made from worsted-weight Shepherd’s Wool, a Michigan company, purchased at Stitch Therapy, A Fine Yarn Shop. I love this deep shade of oxblood (Berries).

This pattern part of my original series Elven Anthropology, knits inspired by the books of J. R. R. Tolkein, the fantastic art of the Brothers Hildebrandt, and of course the cinematic wonders of Peter Jackson.

The gusset capelet adds an aesthetic stability.

Seams are grafted in Kitchener stitch; the band is turned and ticked.
