Project of the Week: Columbine Scarf
When I’m looking to infuse a little bit of the handmade life into my summer wardrobe, I often turn to one of my scarves for something pretty that won’t add bulk. But I always go for the lightest-weight one I can possibly find. If you’re looking for a new warm-weather scarf that you’ll reach for again and again, check out the Columbine Scarf, designed by Jo Janes for Interweave Crochet Summer 2019.
The floral eyelet patterns on each end of this scarf were inspired by the columbine flower, Colorado’s state flower. Light and delicate as they are, the ends are the heaviest part of the scarf. In between are nearly six feet of light-as-air filet crochet mesh. You’ll be cruising your way through that repetitive stitch pattern, stitching undeterred through music festivals, beers on the patio, and Netflix marathons indoors. Once you’re finished, drape this beautiful, soft scarf around your neck and allow it to fall down in gentle waves for an elegant summer accessory.
Need another reason to get started? The design uses Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk, which is 85% superwash merino, 15% silk, and all luxury. Plus, the whole scarf uses only two hanks! There are countless colors to choose from, from floral-inspired hues to jewel tones. Whatever you choose, you’ll have a new favorite scarf to protect you from the AC.
