I wanted to create a gift for my dad for my parents wedding anniversary.
So a scarf came to mind!
He loves wool and tweed, so I felt this would be an ideal medium to use. Its masculine and yet can still be styled to be creative.
I chose to make the scarf two sided to give it a thick feel.
On one side I decided to use one fabric; for this I chose a lovely mustard brown, lighter weight wool fabric. (That I had bought years ago , with the desire to make a dress for myself...yet it never happened..to thought it could be put to good use in another way!)
Then for the other side, I chose to create a patchwork look; cutting out squares of various tweed fabrics, some bought a while ago...just waiting for me to use them...whilst others were bought at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate this year........for this purpose!
I wanted to make the scarf really special, so have made a hexagon patchwork piece, in three parts on one end, to finish the look.
Overall I am very happy with the result!
Here below are some photos of the results.............
