Wednesday wearables: Frilled City Scarf
Spring has certainly sprung but that doesn't stop it getting a bit chilly after dark. It's always good to have something to keep your cockles warm when the weather turns and I've tracked down a free scarf pattern that is made for nippy nights out on the town.
Cotton and Cloud are purveyors of lovely little knitting and sewing patterns that are original, different and inspiring. Much of their inspiration comes from Japan, as the owner Kyoko was born in Japan before moving to London.
The Frilled City Scarf is a simple but quirky little knit. It involves a crochet cast on, an easy cable pattern and the ability to 'make bobbles' in your knitting. All of these techniques are helpfully shown in the free pattern.
The pattern also has two versions: a long and a short scraf to make it adaptable for different weathers.
The really cool part is that the pattern is being used to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund too. You can donate whichever amount you feel appropriate here.
A frilly bit of fibre-flinging to keep you warm when the weather turns. And the chance to check out some cool Japanese goodies and hug a panda.
