The scarf is named after the beautiful flowers that grow high up in the Alps, above the tree line. If you have ever seen them you know that they can take your breath away.
Made out of a fingering sock yarn, the scarf is worked in an easy to memorize lace and cables pattern with some textured parts in between. Of course you can substitute yarns and use anything in different yarn weights. Cable patterns tend to use a lot of yarn. Make sure you have enough.
