In Edmonton, it’s always safe to assume that it’ll snow before Halloween – I just didn’t expect snow over Thanksgiving long weekend! However, it was lucky that I had already whipped up this beautiful chevron scarf to keep me warm in the cold weather. I think it’ll become my go-to accessory for the winter, and I hope you’ll enjoy it as well!
If you’ve ever met me in real life, you’ll know that I love to “borrow” oversized sweaters and t-shirts from my brothers. I’m 90% sure that they’re made of softer fabrics than female tops and that alone fills me with happiness when I wear them. The only problem is that since I’m on the short side, oversized sweaters can sometimes make me look like I’m drowning in fabric. As an alternative method to get that comfy, tomboy look, I wanted to look into unisex style scarves this week!
Ever since I saw the basketweave stitch, I knew I was going to have to make something with it. The texture and woven look of the stitch instantly caught my attention, and it’s an amazing stitch because it’s so simple to do, but so intricate to look at!
Whenever I go shopping for clothes, I’m always drawn to two things: beige coloured tops and lace detailing. In regards to lace, I think it’s the intricacy that does it for me. I just can’t resist the patterns and the way it looks, so when I saw the pattern for this scarf, I knew I was going to have to make it!
It turns out that my spree of hand-made gifts didn’t end with Christmas! For my friend’s birthday, I decided to make him a scarf. The problem was finding a pattern that seemed “masculine” enough. However, it was pointed out to me that most of the masculine / feminine vibe of a scarf depends on the colour choices, rather than the stitch or design. With that in mind, I happily settled on a scarf pattern that provided enough interesting detail while seeming safely gender neutral.
