Plug & Play: Custom Scarves & Shawls

with Amy Singer
Choose and use eye-catching stitch patterns to build custom accessories that capture your style. Create your own scarves and shawls with fun, frustration-free techniques.

Easily plan and knit personalized scarves and shawls with Knitty.com editor and founder Amy Singer. Make gauge your friend to ensure your scarves and shawls become the size you want. Choose any stitch pattern and use it to build your own alluring accessories. Then, combine multiple stitch patterns to create even more sophisticated effects and unique looks. Add borders to keep your scarves from rolling, and edgings as another custom design element. Learn to knit sideways and produce chic cowls with the looks you love. Plus, see how easy it is to create rectangles on the bias and use the same technique to create triangular shawls. Build custom scarves and shawls with a method you'll enjoy using again and again.
