How to: Make Gorgeous Tana Lawn Scarves for Spring
This is the time of year when I start putting my sweaters, coats, and big chunky woolen scarves (even my Gaptastic cowl!) away for storage. I then reach for the floaty, gauzy silk or cotton scarves that are perfect for the New York spring, but that would have withered - or caused me to wither! - in a winter snowstorm.
What's all the fuss about? Well, Tana Lawn is a light, strong cotton broadcloth that gets softer with wear and washing. I've made shirts out of it for my husband, and have quilted with it endlessly - and, while expensive, you can't beat it for quality. With its super-close weave, it's very easy to hem and cut precisely.
For this pattern, you need two yards or metres worth of Tana Lawn, but you'll have two scarves at the end. Make one for you and one for your bestie, or for a friend who's getting married. And don't forget - American Mother's Day is right around the corner, on May 13th!
