French Scarf With Yarn – In White

Downloads-001

This is my last French Scarf with yarns.  Seriously.  I have now made 5 of these.  They are addictive because they are quick to make.  Here are the others below.

The purple and green are the lightest and thinnest.  That is because I used fine mohair and alpaca wool and a very thin merino, like thread.  The blue one has a thicker hand spun yarn that gives more texture and is slightly heavier.  The gold scarf has a thicker yarn and a thin mohair blend. 

The white scarf was made with 100% merino yarn and white viscose and merino roving.  The yarn has a lot of white in it and I thought it would be better to use a white roving with it as the white would most likely dominate any other color of roving and peek through like it did a bit in the purple scarf.  I laid out the wool on one side only.  The white viscose makes it very shiny, but it is a bit difficult to tell in the photo.  Because the yarn is 100% wool, it shrunk quite quickly and made some really interesting textures.  This also makes the scarf feel a bit thicker than the others, though the spaces in-between the yarn are quite thin.  I have this yarn in another colorway, and will probably make another one.  It isn’t as bright and also has a lot of white in it.

These scarves can be made in a variety of ways, with or without yarns, with silk, viscose or other bling fibers.  They can be made according to the template shape below, or as a triangle (just fold over one edge).

They can be quite dense, such as the way I made them, or they can be made more loosely using less wool and viscose.  The wool content in the yarn will make a big difference also.  I found the template size to be just right for me, but I made a larger one out of flooring underlay for making them with wool and bling fibers only.  You are limited only by what you have available and your own imagination.

    1. Thanks Karen. Many people seemed to have problems with the sizing, but for me it worked out fine. I like a close fitting scarf, but this one doesn’t choke me, so the template is the right size, and I am no longer very thin! 🙂

  1. They all look fabulous and I’m sure the laying out of the yarn in swirls is satisfying. You have done a few posts now and my brain still can’t compute how that template makes those shapes when in the neck.

    1. Thank you! It is worth watching the video I linked in the first post. If you look at the template you make a little loop at the long end and then pull through from the opposite corner. It’s a knack. This way is less bulky if just making a triangle.
