Sad story. Alright, it isn’t a truly sad or tragic story by any means, but I was still sad. A pretty little baby scarf I had made was missing for a couple weeks; it finally made an appearance in one of our vehicles.
I was thrilled to see it again, until I took a closer look. Apparently, we must have capable little visitors of the rodent variety who are able to enter the vehicle and wreak havoc on the unsuspecting scarves that live inside.
The old scarf was really pretty. I don’t recall where I got the yarn, but it had a beautiful gradient going for it. The new yarn I used is a lot busier, but it still is very soft and has some nice colors to it. My one-year-old is sold though. All I have to do is tell her it looks really pretty on her and then it is the best thing ever and she needs to wear it all the time!
What I love about this pattern is that the ends “hook” together and it stays in place even on your wiggly toddlers. I think I need to make one for myself. The adult version of the pattern calls it a tuck-in or bow-know scarf. The ends do look like a bow and link together. I have found it to be very useful. Practicality is probably my very favorite style.
The pattern I used is posted here by Liesl. There is also an adult version I saw referenced in the comments here, but I haven’t tried it myself yet. Have fun knitting and enjoy January.
