I love the weather when the summer ends and fall begins. Most of all, I love the fact that classic Autumn staples like scarves, boots, and jackets come out. Every once in a while, I’ll make myself a new scarf and recently, I started to get into this really awesome sapphire infinity scarf I was working on.
Last winter, Shorts got a child sized scarf from her grandmother, which unfortunately, we lost in a tragic dryer accident. We don’t talk about it, much. Anyway, I decided to try to make her one, and I scoured pinterest for some ideas. I found this super awesome DIY tutorial from Carissa Miss and decided I had to take on this simple, 1 hour project that only required one ball (yes-ONE) of chunky yarn. I have a compulsive craft hording problem, and tend to buy single balls of yarn because of said problem. This seemed like the perfect solution, plus- what a great stress reliever. I love feeling like I’m creating something, like I’m not just sitting around and wasting time. Ever since trying her tutorial, I was addicted. For those of you DIYer’s out there, check out Carissa’s tutorial.
Over the course of an afternoon I whipped up a couple for Shorts. It’s been several months since I modified the pattern to be chunkier, raised ribbed, and a little wider to fit larger toddler heads. I usually tuck the excess into the coat so she is nice and bundled. They are available on Etsy and you can even make a custom color request. Take a look:
