Granny Square Scarf


This project turned out better than I'd hoped it would.


There was always the possibility that it would look garish instead of quirky and cool.


The key I think was to use natural fibers and fingering weight yarns.  The scarf drapes nicely and is lightweight and warm.


Starting with the fairly coordinated set of weaving yarn samples also gave the project cohesiveness.

This one's a winner.  I will wear this a lot.

I love it. We (me & my aunts) used to crochet granny square afghans all the time. Mom had one which I took to her in the nursing home and it promptly disappeared. :-( Great scarf.

It really did come out quirky and cool, not garish or tacky at all. Great job!
