This collection of scarves presents an even better-than-the-original sequel to the popular first collection. Like the first Decidedly Different Scarves Collection, these scarves are engineered for visual impact, adding uncommon flair to any wardrobe.
Included are designs for three scarves: one in hairpin lace, one in knit and one in Tunisian Crochet. Each scarf employs simple techniques "with a twist": each twist an easy variation on the standard way of working. The results are striking scarves that will teach some snappy little tricks:
Falling Layers (Tunisian Crochet- red scarf- pictured left on mannequin trio): Worked on a large hook in 3 Color TunisianTM, this scarf is the ultimate stash buster and a great way to combine small amounts of 3 different yarns. It also showcases some fun tricks like short-rowing and stitch re-sequencing. It is created in a series of layers worked in a "join-as-you-go" fashion, resulting in a lush, multi-layer scarf..
Nudibranch Ruff (Hairpin Lace- taupe scarf- pictured middle on mannequin trio): This delicate multi-layer ruffle is created by joining 2 hairpin lace strips together upon themselves in an oblong shape. The edges of this flattened round are then edged with single crochet stitches and a splattering of beads and picots for a delicate and ethereal neck ruffle.
Moulin Rouge (Knit- pictured right on mannequin trio): This dramatic scarf is worked lengthwise and uses dimensional tuck-stitch stripes, ruching, beaded clusters and a feather boa for a dramatically different impact. Featuring stainless steel yarn and merino wool, this hollow tube scarf will provide your wardrobe a little dimension and interest.
