A Winter Scarf by Ennadoolf

Soft and Cozy Scarf in Shades of blue

This scarf is a favourite of mine and I hope some day I will find the time to make more just like it. I used a stitch pattern that my mom handed down to me. It makes a lovely thick scarf that will stretch to cover if/when needed. It is approximately 54 inches (135 cm) long and perfect for those chilly days and/or nights. It has been knit from a denim blue-toned yarn to create a soft and cozy scarf you'll want to wear often.

The scarf was hand knit by Anne of Ennadoolf. As mentioned above, the pattern was passed down to Anne from her mother Joan. Below Anne takes the time to answer additional questions about the scarf.

Q. What was your inspiration?
A. The yarn was just perfect for this particular knitting stitch/pattern and it can be worn by men, women or children.

Q. How long did it take you to make it?
A. I'm not sure! I was watching tv at the same time so didn't keep track.

Q. Did you use any new techniques in the making of it?
A. No, just my mom's stitch/pattern

Q. What made you choose the color(s) for it?
A. I thought this yarn was suitable for all ages, men and women

Q. Do you plan to make any more items similar to this one?
A. Yes, my husband likes it, so I hope to find time to make more. It's finding the time that is the difficult thing. If only there were more hours in a day.

Q. Did you enjoy making it? Why or why not?
A. Yes, it was quite enjoyable. I love this stitch/pattern and should use it more often!

Q. Anything else you want to tell us about it?
A. I just wish you could feel it; the yarn is so soft. Oh, and its machine washable and dryable.
