     This design is the feature pattern celebrating LYS Day 2022 at my LYS, The Little Yarn Shoppe in Saginaw Michigan. The pattern is designed by a local designer (me), for a local yarn shop (The Little Yarn Shoppe), with hand-dyed yarn from a local dyer (Blooms and Ewe). This oversized scarf is knit on the bias with a mix of colors and textures. It’s a surprisingly simple knit in an easy to wear style and size, perfect for the varied Michigan weather. Everything about it is pure Michigan, so it is fittingly called Pure Local.
