I wanted a bright and Springy accessory to wear with my velvet Pilvi coat. I feel that a red scarf can take this coat into winter, but a bright green or yellow makes it more suitable for Spring. I didn’t want anything too big, since I want the pattern of the coat to take centre stage. I had some beautiful Shalimar Breathless “Sedge” in my stash, so I whipped up a petite Charm Shawl.
I find this shawl very easy to wear; I like it’s curving form. I have at least four, in different sizes.
I made this one very small, since I’d used some of the yarn already, in a fair isle project. One of the handy things about this pattern is that it’s adaptable to whatever yarn quantity you have.
I also like the idea of having a gauzy cotton scarf with pom pom trim. Lotta Jansdotter has one of those in her Everyday Style book, too.
I also really like this cleverly simple Infinity scarf at Sew Me Something. She has included a tutorial, using only 40cm of wide fabric plus 2.8m pom pom trim.
I’m going to search out some natural, light cotton and yellow pom pom trim!
