Fringe Element Scarf

from Sideways Dragon
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Fringe Element Scarf
Fringe Element Scarf
Fringe Element Scarf
Fringe Element Scarf
Fringe Element Scarf

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, Purl, Yarn over

Pattern Description:

I love fringe! There is something about the fluid motion of hundreds of loose ends, each taking its own path in response to movement or a vagrant breeze. A 1920's flapper dress. A suede jacket with fringed sleeves. A pashmina shawl. Fringe elevates each of them from ordinary to memorable.

Long and versatile, the Fringe Element scarf may be worn with a favorite outfit or used for extra style and warmth with your coat. It is wide enough to be used as a light shawl on cool evenings or to cover your hair when the weather is misty.

The pattern is accessible to beginning knitters but is not too boring for the more experienced folks. Detailed instructions with photographs are included to clearly illustrate how the fringe is made and attached. The Fringe Element scarf can be worn winter or summer, indoors or out, dressy or casual.
