We wanted the scarves to be extra wide and long, but not overly hot to wear--sort of like flannel. We decided that Nature Spun Fingering would be ideal, woven at 16 ends per inch for a nice drape.
|Nature Spun Fingering in 115 Bit of Blue, 110 Blueberry, 720 Ash, 730 Natural, 701 Stone, and 303 Sea Spray|
|These oversized scarves can be wrapped and worn in lots of other fun ways, too.|
One of my favorite parts of any project is choosing the color scheme. I wanted the first scarf to be colorful and fun, yet neutral enough to match with anything. This color combo pairs warm neutrals with several cool blue shades.
|The fringe is simply delightful.|
The next scarf has more of an earthy color scheme with an asymmetrical plaid pattern. I highly recommend checking out www.plaidmaker.com - it's rather addictive.
|Scarf 2 in progress: colors are 720 Ash, 112 Elf Green, 110 Blueberry, 730 Natural, and 136 Chocolate Kisses|
|Warped and ready to weave!|
Can't wait to wear my blanket scarf to the winter TNNA tradeshow in San Diego this week!
|Beautiful finished scarf.|
