New Winter Scarves

I managed to get 3 scarves made in January in between orders. 2 were made from yarn I’ve had for quite a while, the other one, from ‘newer’ yarn (is there such a thing?).

Technically 2 are cowls, I suppose, but the term ‘scarf’ is interchangeable to me for something you wear around your neck when it’s cold. These definitely fit that criteria!

The first one is a red/ombre grey/black combo in a slip stitch design that’s all in 1 piece – there is a seam simply because of the slip stitches. The grey/black ombre yarn gives it a shadowed effect that you can see in the photos. You can find it on Etsy and on Amazon.

The next is definitely a scarf – long and doesn’t have a loop. It’s made from just the grey/black ombre yarn – and the tweedy effect of this yarn is more prominent as there isn’t the red to distract you from it. The teardrop shapes are made by looping the yarn over the needle then dropping the extra loops on the next row. Which is your favourite of these 2? You can get this one here on Etsy and on on Amazon.

The last one is made from a completely different yarn – Malabrigo Rios, a hand-dyed 100% wool yarn from Peru – I can’t remember what this colourway is called but I kept the sister cowl to this one as it’s so incredibly soft. The basketweave is perfect for this short-change colourway of pinks, purples, greys, browns and greens. It doesn’t sound like these colours should work together, but they do, gloriously. My photos don’t really do it justice. You can get this one on Etsy here and on Amazon here.

I hope you like these cowls and scarves as much as I do.
