Barbara's Granny Square Scarf


This project turned out better than I'd hoped it would.


There was always the possibility that it would look garish instead of quirky and cool.


The key I think was to use natural fibers and fingering weight yarns.  The scarf drapes nicely and is lightweight and warm.


Starting with the fairly coordinated set of weaving yarn samples also gave the project cohesiveness.

This one's a winner.  I will wear this a lot.

The sewing up wasn't bad. Plus this wasn't a bed-sized blanket.

Oh, it's foggy and cold here since I live on the coast, I actually wore the scarf all day yesterday.

Thanks! It's a challenge to take your own picture without making goofy faces.
