New Orla Scarf

This is one of those scarves that started so differently in my head. The colors were inspired by this beautiful feminine petal-y Orla Kiely bag, but I could easily seen this one worn by a guy or gal. That pumpkin alpaca wool started as 90% of a knit cabled vest sweater that sat waiting to be assembled and blocked for almost a year. By then, I had grown tired of the pattern and decided to unravel and reset the yarn (a dip in cool water and hung to dry on a clothes hanger with water bottle weights). A good idea because the yarn has supplied me with rich pumpkin color for several scarves.
