The ruminations of an artist on art & life...art quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

Fun Little Bow-tie Scarf


This little scarf was very quick to knit! and I love how it feels....because it is made of a nice soft wool/silk blend. I have ordered some cashmere/wool blends to create a few more of these. Also, making this used less than one skein--so this is a good economical project for some more expensive luxury yarns....
(now guess what I'm making this year for holiday gifts?)  I may even knit some of these to put up for sale in my Etsy shop.

Pretty clever how you knit a tube by dividing the stitches so one side of the scarf fits through....pattern here if you want to try to knit one! Yep--it is from Martha Stewart's online...although this is a old pattern which has been around a longtime--and Martha doesn't mention that fact.

I like that it keeps my neck warm with out the bulky-ness of a longer scarf. Now back to knitting...the next one is light blue and oh! so soft...and I think I may try a little embroidery embellishment on this blue one.
