Chunky Scarflets: the Ultimate Accessories!

I found a crochet UFO. (Un-Finished Object) out in my craft room the other night. I can’t recall if it was going to be an afghan or a scarf or what… but I found it and was inspired to turn it into something useful.

Last month, I created a scarflet/cowl out of a t-shirt type yarn. It was cute, but I wanted something chunkier. I added a few more strands in different stitches and colors, then created a “cuff” to bind them all.

Here’s the t-shirt piece that inspired me.

Each piece was 60-65″. I doubled it, twisted it and used the cuff to cover where I joined the ends together. I can see this in lots of colors, textures and weights.

My daughter saw the pictures and went scavenging in my stash for just the right color, so I can create one for her. I don’t always create things that she likes, so I’ll definitely put her request in my queue!
