Ok, I’ll be the first to admit it. I’m usually on the tail end of a fashion trend, meaning that by the time I decide it’s really cool and I can’t live without (insert ridiculous, now out of style, fashion), it is terribly out of date. But on this one I watched. I waited. I tried to figure it out. Tried really hard to “get” why scarves are so huge! I’m a Northern Gal and when I wear a scarf it does more than just get in the way. And it has to. In order for me to tolerate the “get in the way” part it better do a darn good job of sealing up the collar area while out tending to the critters. It better be warm and fuzzy and comfy, and wide. Nothing like these scarves that are 2 or 3 inches wide. What in the world???
So enlighten me. What is it about a scarf that makes you think it would be a good idea to throw one on in August, say when it’s 90 degrees and 90% humidity? Seems like it would get caught in the hay equipment to me. Being that I’m soooo glad to get rid of scarves, hats and mittens in the spring, it’s just a bit outlandish to me to think about using them for style or bringing an outfit together or whatever you use them for, although I do admit to thinking maybe it would be more useful than bailing twine for holding my hair back. I mean, my jeans and t-shirts go together just fine, I don’t need hanks of threads dangling from my neck taunting the cattle to chew on them.
So, while I’m waiting for all of you to educate me on this, here’s a free pattern, from Classic Elite, of… yup, you guessed it, a scarf! Click HERE: http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/pdf/KatydidDropScarf.pdf
