Venetian Scarf & Cowl
It’s that hats, mittens, scarves kind of season, quickly approaching, just around the bend, and it seems almost natural for us to pick up our hooks or needles and start whipping these up in droves. Many of you are getting ready for those final craft fairs just before the holidays and these particular items are most likely going to be at the top of the list of items to make. Why? Because, they’re easy, fun and people will be in search of unique, fun & of course cozy winter wear!
A lot of us have dabbled in the color pooling technique over the last couple of months with scarves, I’ve seen so many very cool projects that have come about from it, and I certainly have made my fair share! As a matter of fact, with all of my scarf makes, I felt inspired! I started playing with other designs. I must admit, I did tire of the moss stitch! I know, the moss stitch is not the only stitch that you can successfully color pool with, but it was the surest bet for me!
So while messing around with this stitch and that, I stumbled upon a workup that produced an effect very similar to the appearance of the Venetian blinds. While it isn’t as easy to see in the photos, you can get a better idea in the full video tutorial I’ve worked up for this pattern. The pattern I present to you offers such a great dimension, it’s thick, it’s snuggly & it’s fashion forward!
If you create this scarf with a lighter weight yarn, you will achieve a beautiful dress scarf, the perfect accessory for everyday wear at work or school. If you thicken it up with a heaver weight, you have the perfect winter scarf!
I hope you enjoy this pattern, it was fun creating it! As you will notice when you go to the pattern, I am offering 3 different pattern options to aid in any of the possible confusing areas. (There is really only 1 row that I struggled a bit in explaining).. So I offer you a photo diagram, a full video walkthrough, along with the written pattern itself.
If you decide to try your hand at the Venetian Scarf & Cowl Pattern, I would love for you to stop by our YarnWars group on Facebook and share your work up of this, as a matter of fact, I would LOVE to add a photo of your Venetian scarf to this page as well if you grant me permission so that others might see other creatives for this project. =)
Have a wonderful day everyone and thank you so much for being a part of YarnWars!
Happy Yarning friends!!
