Emily Explains: Ways to Wear Big Scarves

Scan 1

The air is chilly again today and I officially want to be snuggled in a blanket all the time. This becomes a bit of a problem when life resumes and, you know… I have to go out in public. My best solution? Knit a big cozy scarf…

choose a scrumptious yarn and wrap myself up in it. Want to feel cozy with a hint of style, too? Here are my favorite ways to wear big scarves.

As hood to block out the cold and snuggle within…

As a shawl…somehow this always makes me feel elegant and casual at the same time!

Or, my personal fave… all wrapped up. It’s bold, fashionable and completely warm. Wrap it around multiple times and then tie the ends loosely, so that the shawl stays wrapped !

Large scarves/shawls are great projects for yourself and for gifts. You can knit something beautiful without worrying that your hard work will not fit. Need a pattern? We’ve got lots of big scarf patterns to choose from!











I’m dying to knit Denslow next…maybe my first project (for me) after my Christmas knitting!

Stay cozy and warm,

  3. Yes, these are lovely! I think it would be great in a super bulky weight.

      Thanks! Yes I agree big scarves are the best. And it is especially fun to experiment with different weights of yarns!
