Hello, Christmas spirit! I'm here to feel you!! Let me in!!! I love fall but I'm kind of indifferent to Halloween most years. I'm ALWAYS ready for twinkling lights and hot cocoa though! Christmas 24/7 over here! Blast Mariah Carey! I'm here for it!!
Now let me tell you a short story about how this pattern came to be! I actually scribbled down this idea like 5 or 6 years ago in my (then) physical crochet sketchbook and...then it just sat there! I had an idea for the yarn: a super soft alpaca type feel (whether actual alpaca or not), and the stripes would be cream/white, and a light blue/blue-green. I had an exact image of this scarf, though it was only a scribble, and I looked for the right yarn for YEARS.
It was during a time when I wasn't exactly comfortable monetarily, so I couldn't just order random yarns online that I thought might work. Especially not at natural fiber prices! Heck, I don't even feel comfortable doing that now haha. So instead I had to rely on the big shops to get something like I was imaging in stock and...nothing. Even when the right texture came around, the blue color I wanted was never in existence.
Y'all it took YEARS to find the right yarn!! WeCrochet came along and went "oh hey, you wanted a light blue yarn for your elf hat scarf? girl we got you."
