Odd Uses for the Patterns

Not everyone can pull off wearing a nine to twenty-six foot long knitted accessory.  And there will be times when you want to show your fannish preferences in a more subtle way.

These patterns are here to help you.

Scarf Ties

Here’s a pattern for a Season Twelve man’s necktie in fingering weight Brown Sheep Nature Spun.

It’s only slightly more complicated to knit than a scarf; there are selvage stitches to keep the edges tidy, and it is in very thin yarn on very small needles.

You will have a lot of yarn left over to try some of the other patterns on this page.

Season 12 Man’s Tie in Nature Spun Fingering Weight Yarn

I’m thinking about a Season 18 tie, but in silk rather than chenille.

I’ll be experimenting with it over the next several months.

Ladies Fancy Neck Scarf

The Lovely Daphne Ashbrook asked me for a small scarf she could wear at a convention.

Since she always looks so nice, I couldn’t just give her any old teddy bear scarf.

This is a very posh little scarf, scaled down from the original that is quite nice with a nice outfit.

Tiny Posh Scarf in Sport Weight Blue Sky Alpaca

(The reason why I don’t offer this pattern in full size in Alpaca is that Alpaca is very heavy and very warm– knit a full sized scarf in that and you’ll have ten pounds of scarf hanging off your neck and you’ll be wringing with sweat if the temp is under 30 degrees.  A little Alpaca goes a long way.)

Kids, Babies & Doll Sized Scarves

Then there are the kids and baby sized versions of the Scarf. . .

Who doesn’t know someone with a teddy bear that could use a scarf?

These are scaled down versions of the Scarf; the Baby size is about four feet long,  and about three inches wide, the Kid size is about seven feet long and about seven inches wide.

Scarf Socks and Stockings

I saw a version of this on Ravelry.com and just had to do a pair.

These are toe-up thigh high stockings that will need a pair of garters to keep up.

You can also start at the toe, go as high as you wish and then do a few inches of ribbing to hold them up.
