Back to Styling

Not too long ago, I posted about learning to style your knitwear. It has been on my mind to follow up that post with ideas and tips for my own patterns. To begin, I will start with the free chunky fringed scarf I posted last week.

People come in the shop all the time saying they always buy the same yarn colors and need “to break out of their rut”. And while I am all for constant experimentation and expanding my horizons, I have to say that I don’t like to see people feel ashamed of buying their favorite colors. When you crochet or knit with your favorites, you are guaranteed to end up with lots of pieces that work together that you will love year-round. Styling is all about being able to swap items in and out of different outfits. As you may have already figured out, I am very drawn to reds (although that could change). This scarf is now going to serve me well no matter what season it is (and if you’re wondering, yes, it was about 95 degrees the day I shot these photos, so the winter look is here just for your benefit!) Hope you enjoy!

My go-to look so much of the time! Printed tank top, denim shorts, metallic sandals and a hand-knit accessory!

Yes, that's my knitting bag! I often wear a plain tank top because I don't like to detract from the handknits, but in this case, I think the black and white print sets off the bright color well.

I never get tired of a winter whites look. In Los Angeles, I can only wear this much warm about 1 month out of the year, but I always get compliments when I do a winter white look.

Varying shades of cream with a shot of color is a simple way to look pulled together.
