Drawstring Scarf

 My good friend Ellen models my new scarf. Isn't she lovely? This is a fun knit to do while you're waiting for the cable guys to show up.

I think this looks so festive, and is just one of many looks one can do just by sliding the scarf up on the drawstring.

The collar up to keep away drafts, or to work as a stand-in for Ming the Merciless (only us old gals will remember him).

Anyway... I will be writing up the directions, and will post them when I do.

  1. I love it! I am definitely making one for myself for next winter. :)

    I think I'm going to need to make one of these - my studio can be quite cold year round as it is in the basement.

    Also, did you know they are making a Flash Gordon movie for release in 2012?

    What a cool idea! I'd like to see what one of your hand-dyed pieces sewn as a tube (cotton cording inside) for the drawstring would look like...

  4. Ming the Merciless - hahahahaha!
    How appropriate of a comparison!
    Like the scarf too.

  5. You crack me up!!

  6. What a wonderful scarf! So clever!!

  7. Wow! This is wonderful! Ming's eye makeup is a little dated, but otherwise still looking mahvelous!

  8. I really love it all scrunched up but then I was always a fan of Ming. Stunning color too.

  9. I love it also. Hurry, hurry with the directions. Looks like it's going to be just the ticket for freezing winds we get here in central Pa.

  10. Will you be "making" these for people who do not knit?

    Just asking, is all.
