This is the last item in the Ben's Knitted Christmas series. The alpaca scarf is super soft and was quick and easy to make. It matches the alpaca hat. Although the color doesn't read very well in this picutre, its a very pretty shade of medium grey-blue. The pattern is from Last minute knitted gifts and I think its called the Men's Cashmere Scarf, but the pattern only calls for it to be a yard long and I wanted it to be a longer, wrap-around type scarf, so I knit until it hung mid-hip on both sides of me, hopefully that equates to just about waist length on Ben. Both sides of the pattern look nice, the other side is more like a broken rib, so it can be worn with either side out. He seems to really like it, but it hasn't been uber cold yet and we haven't been out anytime when he could have worn it. Maybe someday I'll get pictures of him in all of these things.
