First of all thank you everybody so, so much for your huge response on my jacket! I was quite overwhelmed by all those lovely comments and am sorry, that I cannot get back to all of you individually. Anyway, I owe it to you, that I can wear that jacket with confidence now!
Today's post is about a scarf I finished in about 1 hour. I always wanted to try braiding fabric like American Apparel's fine jersey braided belts. But to give the scarf also functionality I wanted to add a simple wide stripe of fabric to keep my neck warm.You surely have seen similar scarves on the internet, everywhere, and I know that it is no new invention at all. Nevertheless, I just wanted to share with you the simplicity to make one on your own.
I have to admit, that I am a total scarf fanatic. No matter what time of the year it will be seldom for anybody to see me without. I guess I am like that for more than 10 years now. And if I do not wear a scarf or some other lighter cravat, I feel like getting a sore throat very quickly. It is odd, I know! :)
I used some light weight viscose and cut against the straight grain. It rolls up very nicely, so I can really recommend viscose.
Cut as many stripes as you like and braid as many ropes as you like. Then hand sew each rope's ends together.
Do the same with some wider stripe of fabric, which you might also gather a little, as it will be on the back of your neck.

Next, I am surely going to try the lovely winter warmer cowl by Colette.
P.S.: Did you see those lovely blue earrings I wear proudly on the photos? I finally won something!!! Thank you Laura so much. I just love them! Besides Laura has a wonderful blog, too. And you can get hands on her handmade jewelry in her Etsy shop.
Wishing everybody a wonderful weekend!
