About the Scarf

Awhile back, around this time of the year, I was busy making scarves: big ones, little one, keyholes, wraps, and more.

Especially fun, for me, was a bunch of Super Bulky scarves I made for gifts and moi. At that time, there were all sorts of skinny, very long scarves on the fashionistas about town.

So using Pt. 5 type yarns and size 19 needles, I fashioned a bunch of these and spread them far and wide.

Two remain in rotation here at Chez Chic but this weekend they underwent a silly little transformation that was a new breath of life in their wear: they became cowls…

Simply sewing the narrow ends of the scarf together with a piece of worsted yarn now made a necklace, a super-long, skinny tube that was so long, it could be wrapped three-times around for a layered excellent look:

What was fun? Any of those layers could be grabbed and worn over the ears; or they could simply be arranged for maximum warmth (and, boyo, do we need it today: “Winter weather advisory for snow showers, high winds and falling temps. Very windy and sharply colder. Temperatures fall to 21 by evening. Late-day winds chill drop into the zero-to-15-degree range. West to southwest winds increase 20 to 30 mph with gusts as high as 50 mph developing. Cloudy with snow showers and 1-2″ totals. Powerful winds are likely to send snow airborne, which could affect visibilities in open areas.”).

SInce I can’t stay inside and hide (and, boyo, do I ever want to!) one must gird one’s loins, and Neck, and get out there! (No, no, no!)

Here’s the scarf up close in all its colorful glory:
