I think I have answered one of life's great mysteries: how can I wear a patchwork scarf while still having yummy softness around my neck? I'm not sure there are words to describe how perfectly soft this knit is. I don't know anything about knits, or what kind of knit this is, but I wish I did. I want to live in this stuff.
Ingredients: a half yard of super soft knit from the remnant rack, 20 almost-one-inch hexagons
Recipe: fold the knit in half the long way, right sides together, stitch up the open sides, leaving a 3 inch hole in the middle of the long seam. Turn right side out, stitch hole closed by hand. Applique hexagons. Apply to neck. Let out a deep sigh.
I had planned to applique the hexies on a skirt. Then I saw Jen making her scarves on sewing night and had to acknowledge that summer was indeed ending. I did not follow Jen's sage advice about sewing the scarf into a loop to keep the toddler from yanking on it, and so I was nearly throttled this afternoon. I then discovered the super short double loop shown above so my life is no longer in danger.
