Are you ready for fall?
I don’t know about you but fall is my favorite time of year. Everything about it – the colors, textures, pumpkin spice lattes and (most importantly) the opportunity to wear some of my favorite projects! Of all the different fall accessories, scarves are my go to. They are a big part of my fall wardrobe so I’m always looking for a great new pattern.
In the Fall Winter 2018 Fashion Lookbook from Yarnspirations, I fell in love with the Color Block Bobble Scarf because of the unique texture and stitch. Although I love the color choices in the pattern, I couldn’t help but experiment with my own palette.
It’s all about the color
After all, it is called the Color Block Bobble Scarf! I chose to work with plum, low tide and rice paper – a combination that has now become a mild obsession! These colors pair perfectly with a new sweater I found on clearance this summer (you know I love a good deal!)
I love this approach to picking a project.
In previous years, I have taken a “fly by the seat of your pants” approach to picking projects and colors. I would choose colors that speak to me at the time but when the time came to wear it, it didn’t match a single thing in my closet.
That left me with lots of accessories and not many reasons to wear them. I’m not sure why it took me so long to realize it but it makes much more sense to pick your favorite sweater and make a scarf that matches, right? That’ll be my approach from now on!
Now I absolutely adore the Color Block Bobble Scarf but another little adjustment I made to the pattern was shortening the overall length. I’ll admit, I don’t quite know how to wear a super long scarf without feeling awkward.
First I worked with the plum colorway, following right along with the pattern for two full skeins. This brought my length to 24″ before making the switch to low tide. I worked with this colorway for another 2 skeins which doubled the length to 48″. From here I made the transition to the third and final colorway rice paper. I worked the stitch pattern for one full skein and half of the second. I loved the asymmetrical aspects of the pattern and wanted to incorporate that into mine as well. In total, my Color Block Bobble Scarf (with these modifications) measures 64″ long – perfect for me and my height!
