The signs of fall come every year, and yet we are always taken by surprise, invariably stuck in our summer rhythm. That’s where our Trellis Scarf + Wrap come in… Wrap one around your neck the minute the sun goes down, and stretch those summer nights well into November! Both, of course, will also take you straight through winter, day and night.

Trellis Scarf + Wrap in Season Alpaca | Purl Soho

Based on our original Trellis Scarf, this redux version features two patterns: one for an 8-inch wide Scarf and another for a 16-inch wide Wrap. In Quilted Lattice Stitch, these beauties are subtly graphic, soothingly repetitive, and far easier to knit up than they may look! (Just check out our new video tutorial that shows you the main technique involved.)

Stunning stitch pattern aside, this Scarf + Wrap are extra beautiful in our brand new Season Alpaca.  Exquisitely soft, this 100% baby alpaca is a sportweight yarn, just right for keeping you toasty without weighing you down!

We love how this Scarf in Season Alpaca’s Honey Pink makes everyone’s skin glow, and how the Wrap, in Meadow Mushroom, is perfectly classic. Available in fourteen gorgeous colors, pick your favorite Season Alpaca, learn a new stitch, and prepare for fall!

We love how our Understory brings its personality to this stitch pattern’s beauty: Its crisp definition shows the details; its rustic color keeps things from getting too precious; and its super soft baby alpaca, baby yak, and silk blend mean that you’ll love wearing your Trellis Wrap, too!

Designed by Purl Soho designer, Laura Ferguson.
