Infinity Scarves - I Haven't a Clue

So I used the zebra sweater knit to make the infinity scarf Sheila made - the tutorial she links is great, but that chick looks much better in hers than I do. This one was 4" wide when finished, but I wish it was longer...


This one is the same length, but a lot wider. I haven't looped it yet. (Why do I do such stupid poses?)


Certainly better looped, but too donut-y for me. I need to work on draping.


I tried it with this jacket that I love but I never wear. (The dang camera is SITTING on the bathroom counter on top of a box and I STILL can't get a non-blurry picture.) I like it with the blue.


It's so wide I can pull it over my shoulders and wear it like a shawl!


So I don't see myself getting it together enough to ever pull this look off. This extra X gene is just lost on me. So Junior and Liba, which one would you like?! (Groans from my sister and SIL - they're thinking, oh no, she's pawning them off on us!) I would be delighted to gift these to you, just tell me which one you'd like. And if you'd really prefer neither, I'll gift them to my MIL, who is a dedicated scarf-wearer....though she prefers floral, come to think of it. Uh, Mom? Anyone?

I think it's cute! The one I wear from Target is not as wide but I pull one loop down a little longer than the other.

Try the infinity scarf in a sheer.

I also think its cute and like the fabric choice. It takes some fiddling but once you get the hang of it that donut-y look disappears. The slinkier the knit the more drapey it is... Is there such a word as slinkier...lol Actually, I have an order that I need to wip up.

I love this scarf!!! Thanks for the link - I can't wait to do one next! Great job!

It's too dang hot to wear a scarf right now anyway!

Liba said...

Oh I love them both. They look great on you however. I have been trying some new looks too. Don't give them away until you try it out a little more.

Sister said...

Yes, I need to fiddle a lot more, but I still don't know if I'd wear them. Robbie is right - it's 80 degrees here today! Now Liba, what are your new looks, and would the wide scarf go with them? Mom scarfed the narrow scarf today, and Tracey's got one from Target, so I may get some more fabric to make more for us and gift the wide one to you - let me know!

Liba said...

The wide one would work most definitely. My new looks are courtesy of my sister who is cleaning out her closet and handing me stuff. A really cute long jacket to wear this spring and she has been giving me updated fashion tips. Like dark wash jeans definitely make you look slimmer. And she's helping me learn to layer better (and cuter). You know I am just a jeans a t-shirt kind of chick.

Sister said...

Well that's me too - jeans and T-shirt, though I'm trying to change by sewing up different stuff. I'd love to see the jacket - maybe the scarf will go with it? I'll mail it Monday!

Will send pics after spring break - scott and I have had crazy weeks at work. JCAHO at hospital - need I say more!
