This, ladies and gentlemen, is my Mom! I had made several scarves before Christmas thinking I would give them as Christmas presents. But then I had another idea for presents. So I “scrapped” the scarf idea and put the ones I had already made aside for the time being.
My Mom then recently mentioned that scarves were so “in” this year, and I asked her if she wanted one. So I took the three I had made over to her and let her pick the one she wanted.
I have an MP (mass-produced) scarf that has pockets in it and I just love it. I can put my hat and gloves in the pockets when not in use and they don’t get lost! So I decided to make some of my own. The pockets are very easy to do. They’re just slip stitch joined with the right-sides facing at both ends and then turned right-side out.
I also decided to do cable stitches to make it even more interesting. This is a very simple four-stitch cable where the cables wrap around each other in pairs. If anyone would like the pattern let me know and I’ll be glad to post it.
Sorry for the slight blur of the detail pic. I thought I’d gotten a clear shot.
Thanks to Mom for agreeing to appear on the site. Hope you enjoy!
