October arrived and so did the cooler weather. It’s time for sweaters and scarves. Don’t let the chilly weather stop you for getting outside to enjoy the lovely Fall colours that are beginning to appear.
Over the years I’ve knitted many scarves, lots for gifts and lots for me. Here are a few of my favourites.
This knitted neck warmer is perfect to wear under a jacket.
This fishtail alpaca knitted scarf if so soft and cozy.
Another lovely, soft, brown alpaca yarn scarf was made with the pattern called April Scarf and is a free download from Revelry.
This one used a variegated sock yarn. I had actually knitted this yarn into a mini shawl, but wasn’t totally happy with the outcome, so I unravelled it and knit something else. Have you done that sort of thing? This pattern is Crest of the Wave that I found on Ravelry in a pdf download.
I recently fiinished this cowl which was made with llama yarn from Peru that I purchased while in British Columbia. It is so soft and perfect to wear under my coat. The pattern is a free Revelry download.
And now I’ve got some lovely merino wool to knit into another cowl. I haven’t picked out the pattern yet but I’ve got it narrowed down to a couple.
Scarf storage is important as you want to be able to pick out the right colour, texture and weight right away. Just adding some loops to the body of the covered hanger creates storage just perfect for chiffon and light weight scarves.
Have you got your scarf on today?
