Nightgown to Scarf Refashion
This is my first refashion ever! I am happy to join the bandwagon! I had a nightgown that I received as a wedding gift years ago. It was very comfortable, but not a particularly good pattern for such an item. So, I decided to give it a better life! As a scarf, it is an excellent pattern!
This project was a lot of trial and error and a lot of lessons learned. Typically with an infinity scarf you are working with lengths of 60” fabric. I had very few large pieces of fabric to work with so I had to do a bit of patchwork. Instead of creating a traditional infinity scarf with one large loop that is wrapped around the neck several times, I decided to make one short loop that was extra wide to give a similar bunching affect. I chose an off white satin material for the back.
Here is a great tutorial for creating infinity scarves.
Below are my Before and After Shots …
Another day, another cowl…
This little lovely was created using the holy cowl pattern by Purls of Wisdom. Her pattern called for a double strand knit, but I was using a thicker yarn so I only knitted with one strand. Mine definitely turned out shorter than hers, but I still love it! It was the perfect accessory for a perfect day of apple picking!
Knitted Triangular Scarf
With fall fast approaching, I’ve found myself in a knitting frenzy!
My knitting journey began about a year ago when I took a class with a friend. My biggest motivation for learning the craft was to give me something to do during my long car rides to visit family during the holidays. Since then, I’ve found it hard for me to sit in front of the TV without needles in my hands. It’s a nice way to pass the time!
I have become somewhat obsessed with scarves and cowls so I just had to make a new one in celebration of the changing of the seasons. My scarf was knitted tighter than the pattern that I used so it gives more of a “puffed up” look. It only took one skein!
