I collect antique Ball mason jars and depression glass–they were bound to find their way into my knitting! I love the gorgeous colors of the glassware of America’s past: from vivid aquas to soft pinks. I chose one of my favorite yarns for this project, Purl Soho’s Super Soft Merino, for it’s downright scrumptiousness and whipped up a simple pattern to really let the colors be the stars of the show here. Worn loose around your shoulders or wrapped up and snuggly as a scarf, this Vintage Inspired Wrap Scarf will have you channeling another era.
