After seeing a scarf like this in a magazine and wondering how it was made, I designed this one similarly. It’s knit lengthwise instead of the usual way, and I added a fun, frilly flounce along both edges.

I’ve added a button on one end and buttonhole on the other so that the scarf may be secured around the neck. If you use a decorative or vintage button, it ups the coolness ante.
