Version 2 Drawstring Scarf

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.

My name is Bjorn Coordt, a designer, weaver, knitter .... came from Germany 12 years ago and started 6 yeas ago with my partner Rex Tannahill "Hand Painted Knitting Yarns", now HPKY, LLC.

The "Family" grew into: Scarf-in-a-Shrug, Scarf-in-a-Shawlette, Scarf-in-a-Dress, Scarf-in-a-Tunic and "La Scala" jacket.Our web page is  there is a store locator, where to buy.


  1. Wow - not I can't wait to make one.
    Thank you for sharing.
    K&P.....happy knitting. Bren

  2. I'm working on my second hand-painted scarf. The colors are just delicious! And soooo easy!! Should be finished in the next day or two. The silk scarf as the drawstring really adds the "it" factor.
