French women are known for wearing scarves. Starting
in September and until summer arrives, this is a most important accessory.
The scarf may be striped or patterned, colorful, wrinkled and is much
bigger than the scarves you probably have. Women just wrap the scarf around
their neck in a "Je suis belle et ça ne demande aucun effort*"
sort of way and off they go. Since I have lived in Paris, I have realized
that these ladies are on to something. I find I am much warmer wearing
a scarf, even if I'm not wearing a jacket, so here is my knit version
of the French scarf. It's knit on the bias so the variegated yarn makes
diagonal stripes and stitches are carefully dropped to make a pattern
in the opposite direction. This creates a scarf which tends to be a little
more of a parallelogram than a rectangle, but I promise, it's nice that
way. It's made of the softest, most luxurious yarn I have ever used and
is a dream to wear. Instructions are included at the end to modify it
to create a stole. *I'm beautiful and I don't even try.
