I just love watching this Linen Stitch scarf grow - especially when using different colors of yarn. One can combine various yarns in a seemingly infinite number of ways to get a unique scarf every single time.
This time I used Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn in the colorways Meadow and Sunrise. Together these two unlikely companions made a fun, cheery scarf - perfect for a crisp autumn day, or for brightening up a blustery winter day.
I will say I was surprised at how fuzzy this yarn was this time around. It does seem that different colors of this particular yarn fuzz differently. I'm not sure that this one fuzzes badly. It's just more fuzzy than previous scarves I've made with this yarn. A bit more than I'd prefer - and I am curious how it will look after it's laundered (I will come back here and give a report on that). Having said all that, it looks (and feels) very much like a soft wool to me.
How to style it:
My preference for wearing a scarf is for warmth - simply wrapped around my neck, with the ends looped through the folded end of the scarf and tucked into my coat or jacket:
It's a non-fussy look for a non-fussy sort of gal.
But this one could be temporarily (or permanently) fastened at the ends to create a pretty cowl:
I like that look, too.
While I'm really tickled with this color combination, truth be told the colors probably aren't the best for me. I crocheted this as a total experiment with no idea how it would be used. Being as happy with it as I am this will likely be a gift for someone - either a friend, or an unknown someone - it doesn't matter. I just hope it makes some else smile, too. :^)
