So, which camp is your tent pitched in?
Mine is definitely and firmly set up in the scarf camp. Here’s why:
I love knitting (or crocheting) cowls. I hate wearing cowls. When I put something around my neck, I want it to actually cover my neck – not decorate my outfit. Most cowls hang too low and leave too big an opening to be practical and warm when it hits -25C where I am.
A scarf is pretty and practical. You can wrap it as tightly or as loosely as you want – you don’t really have to commit to either.
That brioche cowl is amazingly beautiful. It’s Hedgehog yarn that I got when I went to Philadelphia. I would probably forever force myself to wear it just because. I’m contemplating ripping it out and making something else. (I didn’t use a pattern for this.)
This scarf is the Portfolio Scarf by Erika Flory. It is also made using souvenir yarn from Philadelphia. Because I can wrap it around my neck and tie it in the front, I wear this “shawl” all the time. It’s one of my favorites.
I’m interested to know what your preference is and why. Leave me a comment below.
Have a great week!
