marshmallow fluff scarf

Marshmallow Fluff Scarf

This is the scarf that started it all. I knitted my mother-in-law this squishy cable scarf for Christmas and developed a cream cable obsession. 

The yarn (Cascade 128 Superwash) was a treat to work with. So soft it felt like knitting with spun sugar. The needles slid smoothly, making effortless cables. The bulky weight and size 11 needles made for quick knitting. Maybe a little too quick because I soon added more cream cables to my needles (see my cowl, hat, and

I hope you're having a good weekend and keeping warm. Louisville has not been a marshmallow world for even a day this winter, but we're finally experiencing a real cold snap. It has been bitterly cold this week, making for some eye-stinging waits at the bus stop. To reward myself for bearing the cold mornings, I've been starting each work day a little slower. I spend a few minutes sipping hot peppermint tea and studying for my new job. This little ritual carries a sense of calm through the rest of my day (at least until I have to battle the brisk weather again). Stay warm, friends!


  1. Love the scarf - this would have been ideal here in the UK as we have had a lot of the white stuff recently!

    I also love Marshmallow Fluff, it isnt readily available here so when I do spot it I tend to buy a few jars - same goes for canned pumpkin.


  2. It's understandable how you developed an obsession- that's amazingly beautiful!!

  3. Your scarf is so cozy looking ... perfect for the cold snap we're having in NY, too ... finally! Glad to hear that you like Cascade 128 superwash as I just got four skeins in charcoal and am itching to cast it on.

  4. Loving the cowl, the shawl and the scarf. I'm all for marshmallow fluff in any form...

  5. I would like to try that pattern....sounds good for me, a beginner knitter! I have never tried a cable!!! Yep, cold snap here, too. BUT we have a little pretty snow. I hope you get some too. Like frosting.

  6. Beautiful marshmallow scarf...eating a marshmallow fluff cookie while wearing the scarf - perfection.
    Love your header picture!!!

  7. I love the name of this scarf! And it's so pretty too.
