the IN scarf
Posted 22 April 2005 - 08:18 AM
I have seen this scarf mentioned on tv before, was this a trend or is it gonna stay through next winter?
For that price I will come up with my own (in crochet of course). It is really long ,long and very nice looking.

I don't know if it is or was a trend but scarves never go out of style, imho. I have always loved really really long scarves and I think they look great on people so go for it.

I haven't seen that style in a scarf before. I'm gonna say that it could definitely be a trend for the masses this fall. If celebs did last year, then it should have legs over the next scarf season. It's a great idea and can be interpreted in so many different ways. Did anyone see the cover of VK? With Courtney Thorne Smith wearing a scarf? It's three long panels, then you attach the three at the bottom, then loosely braid them, tacking the panels down where they meet another panel. It would be so cool to do this in crochet, or even with more than three panels. I say go for the crochet version!
I have that mag and am working the pattern into a crocheted version. It's really quite simply. The knit version calls for all knit rows. So I'm doing the same but with hdc. It's coming along nicely if I would just stop getting interrupted by little things like cooking, straightening, grocery shopping, other crochet projects that are taking priority, etc. And family keep coming down for visits. GRRRRR I have another sister that is driving down tonight. I expect her within the hour. She's driving down from Mt.Vernon, MO (near Springfield/Branson/Lake of the Ozarks). I wanna crochet!!!

I'll probably regret opening my big fat mouth, but this would be fun for a crochet-along.

Did we ever decide whether it's a mobius or a straight scarf with a loop at the end? I think it's a loop. I suppose both could be included in the CAL.

One way to figure it out is to take a regular scarf, criss-cross it into the shape they formed (pinning the ends together to imitate the continuous loop), and then check it to see how many twists that is. When I did this it seemed to be a full twist, as opposed to the half twist of the mobius.
I saw it as a scarf with both ends free, but one end worked as a loop for the other end to slip through. Maybe I'm totally offbase.
We need some better pictures, is what we need. Anybody know another place where this scarf is shown?

Yeah, we can totally do that. I think if someone decides on a long, semi-lacy scarf pattern, we just have to stitch the ends together to form the loop.

Other people have commented on the very obvious seam. Jeez, can't knitters do better than that?

In one shot the model has it hanging loose from her neck and it just looks like a very long mobius, but it could be that it just got twisted behind her neck and it's not visible. Perhaps the knit is so thin and stretchy that it can be twisted many times and still not get bulky. I don't know that I like the look of it the way Mary Kate Olsen was wearing it (kind of looks like a sling for an injured arm to me), but I like the other options that cross the chest and shoulders.
