I remember one of my best friends, Faye, telling me about how her sister has been known to talk in her sleep, which can be embarrassing if you ever share a bed with friends or siblings, especially as you get older. Thanks to Claire for coining the expression schnuggle-uppagus in dreamland, it’s the best way I can think of to describe this scarf. I just want to crawl in as soon as the weather turns cold!
I made this for myself really as it’s the kind of thing I want to wear in the cold, but a few friends and family now have them too. They have been quite popular, it’s always extra special when you know gifts are very happily received. I didn’t really want to model this myself, but it was too big for my baby boy and there was no one else around! I managed to get one ‘normal’ (isn) face’ shot before I could no longer take myself seriously.
I used a super chunky yarn and a pretty stitch which gives it a nice close weave, sometimes I find crochet can be a little too holey!
It is a combination of a crocheted shell with a faux fur inner lining which really gives it a luxurious, wintry feel.
It is completely reversible as well and I kind of like it both ways, you can choose which way to wear it depending on your mood or the air temperature.
These will be available in two colours, scarlet and navy in my Etsy shop throughout the Autumn and Winter season.
