For the past year I have been trying out every vintage knit and crochet hat pattern I have been able to get my hands on. From the 1920s-1970s, approximately. I absolutely love the 1930s style hats and often see glorious matching scarves but had yet to make any neck warmers.
I really love the shapely ascot look and finally decided to try to make one up. After hours of staring down both vintage and modern scarves I decided to design my own pattern and I have to say that it worked out better than expected for a first attempt! I ended up going with a more asymmetrical design than most of these vintage styles and utilized German short rows (the most amazing new-to-me knitting technique I’ve discovered in years!) to create the unique shaping.
I just finished working on another one of these in a Schiaparelli-inspired trompe l’oeil of seafoam green and black. I cannot wait to share that with you and hope to include the pattern as well!
