Elegant scarf

Thanks for encouraging and supporting my newest project! I think the Focus on Fringe scarf will be simple, elegant, and meaningful. What more could I possibly want?!?

The traveling ribbing is a great alternative to the typical arrangement, and gives the scarf a really nice texture without drawing in the fabric too much.

Because I have two pink skeins and only one burgundy, I’m alternating the stripes accordingly – two pink, one burgundy. The extensive fringe is definitely not a yarn-saving design element, and I definitely do not have an abundance of this yarn, but somehow it feels exactly right. Watch me eat my words when I end up with a 40″ scarf, haha! (I hope not)

As promised, here are some of my favorite projects from The Elegant Knitter:

  
A Chic Cloche | Accessorize With Color | Perfect Pom-Poms (get a child to model that, please!)
 
A Dreamy Spiral Scarf | A Shibori Scarf

    Shibori!!! I’m so wanting to try that! I have all these ideas running around my head, but I haven’t had the time or a proper washer to fully realize them.

    I’m really diggin’ that spiral scarf too!

    Even if you end up with a 40″ scarf, as you’ve demonstrated in the past, scarves tend to stretch so maybe it will be perfect… after a little use.

    Oh your scarf is prettier than either of those you pictured. Maybe it’s because of the meaning behind it. Lovely pattern, it’s going to be gorgeous.
