Ice Blue with Charcoal

For sis-in-law and her cohort
A neck warmer for the "cohort" and a scarf for sis-in-law to match hats I made
for them last year...no pics, though, because that was before the blogging days. :-)

Made with that same Alpaca yarn from the Ice Blue post with the charcoal color added
(Bernat calls it ebony I call it charcoal).

Free scarf pattern from Lion Brand found here.
Lion Brand named it "Paint the Town", I will name these "Paint the Town Ice Blue and Charcoal"
or in Bernat's case "Paint the Town Sky and Ebony".


  1. I just found some nice fuzzy charcoal yarn that I'd forgotten I had. Such a lovely colour. I can't wear black but I can and do wear charcoal.

    These are beautiful and the recipients should be suitably impressed. Charcoal goes so well with pastels.

    Is that a slip stitch neck warmer?

  2. Thanks Sue, you have me thinking that charcoal may suit me better too, black may be too harsh.

    The neck warmer is an alternating single crochet with a front post. It's very heavy due to two strands of yarn. It should be warm. :-)

    Have a good holiday!

  3. Beautiful in its simplicity. I am a big fan of simplicity. ANd grey. Especially this time of the year. I see you have been crazy productive and busy lately. Wow! All the things you've made in such a short time!!! How do you do it???

    Thanks for popping in. The Swedish tradition with "risgrynsgröt" and the almond is the same as yours. But the one who finds the almond get to make a wish... I think I like the marsipan pig better. :D Ciao!

  4. Thank you Caroline, the color combo was originally an accident; I am glad you like it.

    Annette, the Scandinavian "Jul" traditions are so fun to hear about. I like th idea of a wish, as well. Thank you for checking out my latest projects.
