Being a big knitter and crocheter, I am a scarf and shawl fiend! Scarves are easy and fun to knit and the perfect accessory to change up an outfit. I just love how comfy and how versatile they are. I’m such a big fan of scarves that I’m a little ashamed to admit that the enormous collection hanging on my closet door is so big that that when I try and close it, a scarf end always gets stuck poking out from the door!
Scarves, Shrugs & Shawls by Sarah Hatton contains 22 fabulous designs that you can wear all year round. My favorite part about the book is the “How To Wear” section which gives readers loads of ideas plus instructions for how to wrap, fasten, belt, or tie on your latest scarf project. In the pages above, I share with you the knitting pattern plus the “How to Wear” ideas for Sarah’s Multiway Stole. A few weeks ago I spotted this same design at Uniqlo — a large rectangular scarf with buttons up part of one side. Which made me think (as most crafters do), why buy one when I can make my own? I really hope you enjoy knitting this multifunctional and gorgeous piece. I think it’s the perfect Springtime accessory to wear — you can change the way you wear it based on the temperature outside!
