Here are some scarves that I gave out as Christmas gifts. I have a lot of novelty yarn in my stash and this Curlicue Scarf Pattern pattern from Stitch Diva Studios is one of my favorite patterns for all the novelty yarns. You can do a lot of experimenting here. I find mohair to be the best for the main part and then something chunky or fuzzy for the trim.
It's an easy and fun pattern with a great curlicue result. It's fun when you bind off to watch it curl.
Best thing was that I used all stash yarn - yey!
The 2nd yarn on this one, (the trim yarn) was soooo soft and was like a fun boa when it was done…
For this one I casted on double the stitches so it was longer and could be wrapped around the neck.
I tried to get a shot that really shows off the curlicue effect. You can kind of see it more here.
