I am really having fun now. This knit may be the all purpose scarf, neckwarmer, cowl, collar, everything a cold shoulder needs to be glamorous. So many ways to wear it and still not have to pull it over the hair-do.
This time I used Baby Zarina merino yarn and it is so much lighter (sport weight) than the red worsted version, which is perfect for outer wear. This lighter yarn works for a fashion statement indoors. Same size needles and same directions. The Zarina was more yardage (181 yds) and I just used two skeins with a bit leftover, including the I-cord. Directions for this scarf are here.
I then got an email from the designer Bjorn Coordt, who has made a similar scarf, only using a silk scarf in combination with the knitted one. So fabulous that I simply must share these with you. First, the current cover!!! of Love of Knitting features the scarf.
