It’s starting to get cold here (it’s supposed to go down to 4 degrees tonight!) so all I can think about is staying warm. What better way is there than scarves? Thick, warm, chunky, wool scarves. I made an infinity scarf for myself two years ago but lost it last year and was without a proper scarf all winter. Last year was one of the coldest and longest winters in recent history and this year is supposed to be just as bad. Therefore I want to get started on one as soon as possible.
One I’ve considered making for a long time is the Colonnade Shawl by Stephen West. It’s simple, it can be worn as a shawl or scarf, and looks nice and quick to make.
I also like the Stockholm Scarf by knitted bliss. It is more of a cowl than a scarf which would be easy to make and wear. It has a nice lace-type pattern without being too open so it still looks warm. Also I luuurve the colour scarf that the author is wearing, though I know it says in the description the wool is not available. Also its free!
Finally I might go for a more traditional scarf like the Guernsey Wrap by Jared Flood for Brooklyn Tweed. It’s nice and wide and has a lovely subtle design to it. I can imagine wearing this through the fall and winter and having some slack to pull it up over my face in the brutal winter winds.
Can’t wait to get stared!
