1940's Scarf

A while ago I saw this beautiful knitted 1940's scarf on Chronically Vintage, the blog of Jessica. It was on my to do-list for quite some time, but I had a lot of other projects to finish. After seeing it worn by her, looking so beautiful on her, I wanted one, too. And soon.
So instead of waiting for the yarn store to open, I looked what I had left in my own yarns. Wool, no. Cotton, yes. But I don't like to knit with cotton, so I decided to make the same scarf with a crochet hook. That's the reason my scarf doesn't look entirely the same as Jessica's does, although I used the same pattern and altered it to crochet. You can find the knitting pattern at Skiff Vintage Knitting Patterns.


After finishing the scarf I looked for a rose pattern on the internet and cross stitched it on one side of the scarf, just for embellishment. May I say, without bragging of course, I love my crochet version of this pattern?

  11. I am very impressed that you did that with a crochet hook! I love to crochet, but when it comes to making things with detailed shapes, I have a hard time. Beautiful scarf!

  12. Love the cross stitch rose effect, it looks very similar to a Cath Kidston pattern.

    1. Had to look Cath Kidston up, but I think you're right. She uses a lot of roses, too. I love her cherry fabrics!
