The goal with this scarf was simple, to design the most ‘Shireen-y’ scarf possible. I definitely succeeded, this one is absolutely my favourite.©Shireen Nadir 2014

This was my first experience really combining different weights of yarn in the warp, and I had no idea whether it would work out. The weft is 100% Lucky Penny Lace.

On the loom it looked a little buckled here and there, especially around the stripes of DK weight, but as soon as I blocked it the entire thing relaxed completely into a flat scarf with beautiful drape.

I decided not to hem stitch this piece. Instead, I ran a zigzag stitch with my sewing machine across the bottom. It’s basically one of the scariest things I’ve ever done since at this point I was in love with the scarf and I really suck at sewing.

However, it worked out 🙂

The generous size means it wraps twice around my neck with long ends, and the 18” depth means it covers my back for maximum cosiness.

And of course the fact that it’s Lucky Penny and chocolate means that the scarf is absolutely me! It’s light and airy and it will make a great summer wrap 🙂
