My Sister’s Scarf

Ahh computer time on the weekend, what a rare occurrence. I don’t know if any of you lovelies out there have this trouble but weekend computer blogging time is scarce especially with Mr C loving his computer games. Though I’m not complaining more hooky weekend time for me. But that is not what today’s post is about, it’s about a cowl. A cowl for my sister who we shall name Duchess. She has been asking me to make her a scarf for ages, she wanted one like everyone else had, one that was in all the stores, but alas one she could not find a photo of to show me and one I could not find in any stores. She described it as circles on top of circles, and before you say ‘ah-ha’ it’s not a yoyo scarf, which is exactly what I thought she wanted, but was quickly told ‘yuk’. I’m not sure what she has against yoyo’s I think they are quiet nice. Anyways after much trawling of the internet and much face-booking we decided we were never going to find the elusive circles on top of circles scarf and instead could she please have a ‘scarf that is joined’ you mean a ‘cowl’. So back to the drawing board or in this case raverly pattern search and I found this, though she wanted it to wrap around twice, so I shortened the chain and made it longer and the finished product is quiet nice if I do say so myself. She is yet to pick it up to give me a verdict but I think she will be happy. What do you think?

  1. I like the yoyo scarf, I’ve not seen one before. I like the one you chose though, you have a very lucky sister, you did a good job!

  2. I think it looks quite nice – your sister will love it. :)
