We’ve all been there – most people start with knitting them. You can never have too many after all! Of course, I’m talking about scarves. But they can be a bit boring to knit and what if you want to use it to keep more of you warm than just your neck? I’m all for multi-functional items – see my 3-in-1 scarf and I wanted to make a more versatile scarf that could be worn in many ways.
I used an aran weight self striping yarn with a little girlie glitter in it and started knitting 7 rows of seed stitches, keeping 7 stitches of seed stitch on either side, adding a YO, slip 2 knitwise, k1, slip the 2 stitches over, YO in the middle of the material – the total width is about 45 cms. I carried on for six 100g skeins of yarn. A long, wide scarf in fact. And then the slightly clever bit. I folded the scarf in half widthways and sewed six decorative buttons at equal distance along one half and matching hooks on the other side. When you button the scarf up all the way, you can wear it hanging.
And finally, I really quite like the asymmetric look.
But more to the point – what do I call it?
