This scarf is made from simple crochet granny squares. The neon colours of electric blue and fluorescent yellow are an unexpected combination but they work well. It’s nice to use colour for winter accessories. The scarf style is 1960’s but the colours are pure 1980’s.
I have to confess that I didn’t crochet this myself. I found it at my local op shop in the middle of a hot summer. The colours took my fancy so I bought it and stashed it away until the Australian winter hit recently.
Hand crafted fashion pieces like this scarf are one of a kind.
MACRAME WAS HUGE IN THE CRAFT MOVEMENT OF THE 70’S AND LIKE ALL THINGS RETRO IT IS HAVING A RESURGENCE. SOME SREET ARTISTS HAVE EVEN TURNED THEIR HAND TO THE ART OF THE KNOT AND HAVE BEEN YARN BOMBING POLES AND POSTS WITH MACRAME.
I HAVE BEEN KNITTING THIS RIDICULOUSLY LONG SCARF FOR ABOUT A MONTH NOW. IT’S ACTUALLY TO BULKY TO FIT IN MY KNITTING BASKET AND I’M KEEPING IT IN A LARGE DUFFEL BAG.
I’M ON A MISSION TO MAKE THIS SCARF AS LONG AND COLOURFUL AS I CAN, JUST BECAUSE I CAN !
I MAY DO SOME YARN BOMBING WITH IT WHEN I’VE FINISHED IT.
I LIKE TO KNIT AS A WAY OF KEEPING CALM. THE ABOVE BALL OF KNITTING IS MY STRESS BALL.
