To Infinity and Beyond: Part Three! Scarves!

Ok.  I've forced you guys to wait long enough.  Any longer and this will read like a really bad horror movie and you'll all leave me to be swallowed by the monsters of my own making.  I'm going to cut to the chase.  Starting with the scarf made of jersey knit.

I gave this one to a friend.   Such a pretty color!
The above scarf was less than a yard of fabric.  It's comfortable, slightly stretchy and keeps your neck warm without making you too hot


Oh Starry Night! 
The scarf above is actually made of a sheer woven fabric that I can't remember the origins of.  I only remember that it was very pretty and it ended up in my shopping cart.  I had enough fabric to make two scarves and they came out rather stylish.  Since the fabric is woven, it does not stretch, but it's long enough to wear creatively and looks great with jeans and even with my hoodie.

Hello world!
I think I smiled waaaaay too big in this one.
 The red scarf was made out of a SUPER STRETCHY knit of mixed fibers.  I purchased it as a remnant from Vogue Fabrics on Roosevelt Road.  At the time, I was thinking of making a top out of it, but when the time came to cut it out, the pattern was difficult to line up in a flattering way.... So.  SCARF!    The fabric's drape and body lends itself nicely to the look of elegance.

The final scarf!
I actually made three of these.  I bought the fabric at Vogue, on sale.  It is a grey, black, and white stretch knit with little hairs all over it.  The weave is kind of  open, so it breathes and keeps you relatively cool.  However, the scarf is VERY arm.  This fabric is the only fabric that I bought with the sole purpose of turning it into a scarf .  I was planning to try out infinity scarves on a day when I was tired of applying to jobs all day, so I wanted a fabric similar to the kind I saw used in the expensive scarves at Carson's.  I found it at Vogue.  And here we are.

Special thanks to my mother for taking the photos.  I couldn't have done it without you.
