Scandinavian Textile Inspired Wrap

I love 60s and 70s Scandinavian textiles, especially the bold, colorful stripes and swirls. Taking inspiration from a particular Verner Panton palette, I modified the weird scalloped scarf I posted a while back into this crazy wrap. The yarn is Malabrigo Worsted. I haven’t blocked it yet because I was too impatient to get pics.

It can be worn a number of different ways, depending on how you pin and twist it. I just love how it came out.

I LOVE THIS… am now inspired but not sure how many more trips to the craft store I can make for yarn in the next week before getting the side eye from husband…

It’s really just one of the wooden crochet hooks I carved, but used as a scarf pin because I thought it would be both convenient and cute. Double-duty object! :smiley:

That is crazy! I love the way you can make it look so different by the way you wear it. Lovely shape. I would have never dreamed it would look like that on!

This is so dang cool! And the swirliness and bright colors will be especially appreciated in the cooler, cuddlier weather.

Thanks everyone! I entered this one in my county fair. Judging was yesterday, but they don’t inform you. So I either need to go to the fair this weekend, or wait until the pickup time on Sunday night. I’m trying to make arrangements for me, my (now adult) child, and my (now adult) niece and her daughter, to go tomorrow evening. It was a tradition for my sister in law and me to take the kids to the fair when they were younger, before our state fair moved to another city and my niece and nephew got too old to want to go with their mother anyway. My SIL passed away unexpectedly in 2019, so she isn’t around to take her granddaughter to the fair. So I’m really hoping we can make it work. If we do, then I’ll know by tomorrow whether this weird little thing got a ribbon or not. :smiley:
