At 16 inches wide, this scarf is much wider than a normal scarf, this due to the fact that on occasion it is required to double as a head covering.
The scarf is required to be light and airy with an overall design suitable for all occasions. Black yarn was chosen as I felt this would be perfect for any formal occasion. It would also blend with any other colour, yet look casual when required.
I used scrap yarn to work a swatch to determine the finished size of the scarf and also to get an idea of the look of the final project. I worked a foundation chain equal to the number of motifs required for the finished length of the scarf, then simply worked repeated rows of motifs until I achieved the desired width of the finished scarf.
The design is worked from the bottom up, instead of from the beginning to the end of the length of the scarf. It can clearly be seen that this scarf could quite easily become a stole/shawl, simply by increasing the number of rows of motifs used.
