Cosy, chunky knits are just the thing for winter. This hand knitted cowl scarf has buttons on one end so that you can wear it in many ways to keep you warm. I was originally going to join the ends to create a circular scarf, but having buttons instead makes this scarf so much more versatile.
I know this is supposed to be a sewing blog, but I have been obsessed with knitting lately. Yes, it’s winter here in Sydney right now, but I think what I really love is the portability of knitting. I can just knit on the bus, or meet a friend for coffee as we knit and chat. You can’t really do that when you’re sewing a dress!
I used Araucania Azapa, an alpaca, wool and silk blend which is absolutely divine. I think it’s definitely worth paying that little bit extra for non-synthetic yarns if you’re going to the trouble of knitting something.
This is a very easy and quick knit, so grab a nice chunky, soft yarn and have a go.
