Alaskan Moonrise Scarf
The inspiration behind this pattern was pioneering aviatrix, Marvel Crosson] who had a wonderful, flirty sense of style. She was the first woman to earn a pilot's license in Alaska and was posthumously inducted into the Alaska Women's Hall of Fame in 2011. Marvel died in a mysterious crash during the first women's air derby in 1929.
The combination of the semi-circle formed by the stitch pattern and the stunning and icy blue of the Miss Babs Yowza! Whatta Skein remind me of an Alaskan moonrise, something Marvel might have seen up close during one of her afternoon flights.
