Weekly Fave! A DIY Summer Scarf

Woven Fabric Scarf With Attached Lace Edging

I needed to jazz up a favorite summer scarf because the original tassels were coming apart. I updated it by knitting two lace edgings in a Half Herringbone Faggot (Multiple of 3 stitches) the width of the scarf ends. This stitch pattern consists of repeating one row: *k1, yo, k2tog: rep from *; pretty simple. After blocking the finished lace borders, I stitched them to the scarf ends with a backstitch and embroidery floss. If you have a scarf that needs an update, try a lace edging or other less time consuming embellishments: pompoms, tassels, beads, fringe – let your imagination be your guide.
