Guys, we are so excited to share the Glacier Super Scarf with you! Last winter, AJ and I visited Iceland, and it was an *amazing* experience. There was so much to see, and the landscapes there are absolutely stunning. One of our favorite experiences was our trip to the Langjökull Glacier, the second largest icecap in Iceland. Not only was the view from atop the glacier incredible, but the ice caves inside were awe-inspiring. It’s hard to describe, but there was such a sereneness inside the caves, and so much beauty in those layers of ice.
I wish we had higher-quality images to share, but we’re the sort of people who get so into the moment that we don’t think “we should take a photo!” until after the fact. I happened to be looking through what photos we did take, and as I was scrolling I noticed the balls of Lion Brand’s Mandala Watercolor yarn among my yarn stock. I still can’t believe how spot-on the Quarry colorway matches the photos we took inside the glacier. As soon as I noticed, I knew I had to make something to commemorate the trip.
And so: the Glacier Super Scarf!
Iceland in winter is a bit chilly, everyone. If we hadn’t had our scarves (mine was a lovely charcoal one that’s been in my wardrobe for years) wrapped around us the entire trip, we might still be icicles. No better way then to remember such an amazing experience than to make a variation of the clothing staple that got us through it un-frozen!
Read on for the pattern for the Glacier Super Scarf, and (in this sadly travel-less world right now) we’d absolutely love to hear about your own adventures, and what creations these might have inspired!

Rep Row 2, joining new yarn balls as needed, until scarf measures 100″ in length. Bind off and weave in ends.
To make the pom poms, we’ll be using Lion Brand’s Hometown USA yarn in New York White (or whichever yarn you opt to use). If you’ve got a pom pom maker, I’ve included a picture tutorial below, but remember that this is optional. You can achieve the same effect by using a cut of cardboard or even the palm of your hand to wrap the yarn for the pom pom.
The size we’ll be using is the 4″ pom pom template.
Now it’s time to finish up the pom pom and attach it to the end of the scarf. Go ahead and remove it from the tool, but don’t fluff it out yet–it’ll be easier to see what we’re doing with one side still flat.
