Current Scarf Projects - Scarves that Make a Statement

A few weeks ago I blogged about some of the color/fiber combinations I was planning to put together for some lighter weight fashion scarves for the coming warmer weather.  I just wanted to share a couple that I have finished. 

The first is an infinity scarf in shades of mauve, burnt orange, peach and cream.  It's available in my Etsy shop.





The second is done in multiple shades of green, including the new hot "emerald" color, in a traditional style.  It, too, is available in my Etsy shop.




Both of these scarves are very open, airy, light and comfortable.

I also have a couple of pretty unique designs currently in the works.
There is one that is crocheted in connected oval/diamond-shaped motifs.  It is worked with one strand of ribbon yarn in brown/lavender/ peach colors and another strand of "flagged" yarn in copper/bronze/pewter/ peach and purple tones.  As you can see from the photos, I am adding an edging in a purple-hued taupe shade with metallic highlights.  I am also planning to add flat, textured discs in mixed metal tones to the center of each motif, and fringe along each end.



The other scarf project I have going also involves repeated motifs, this time in small partial circles that form into a ruffled spiral as the scarf grows.  It is worked with three strands of sport weight yarn held together - one skein of yarn is self-striping, the other two are in solid colors with some metallic flecks. I have been periodically changing the solid color skeins as the length of the scarf grows.
