The Bassenfell Scarf is an asymmetrical garter stitch scarf with three columns of textural cluster stitches. Inspired by our much-loved Bassenfell pattern, we decided to create another mini scarf version in Road to China Light! The pattern is really easy to follow, making it a quick and enjoyable project that allows you to experiment with a beautiful stitch pattern.
This stylish accessory is perfect to knit in Road to China Light due to its excellent stitch definition and incredibly soft, lightweight, and warm qualities. This sport-weight yarn blends baby alpaca, camel hair, cashmere, and silk to create a fabric with a soft halo and enough definition to explore subtle textures.
