You can get my attention pretty easily by just adding “super” to the title‚ I guess that it is my geek side. So when I read that Super Scarves are the hot knit for Fall/Winter 2016 you can imagine my excitement!
Super Scarves are oversized and luxurious versions of your traditional winter staple. Some of them are extra long‚ some are super bulky‚ all are an easy way to add some flair to your cold weather wardrobe.
While looking for pictures to accompany this article‚ I happened upon this example from Etro‚ a high end knitwear company. It is super long; she could wrap that around her a few more times. It has stripes in many colors; it could go with just about anything. It looks a lot like something I have seen before.
Oh yeah‚ Doctor Who! Yes‚ back in the 70’s there was a certain time lord who wrapped himself in a super long scarf striped with many colors. The 4th Doctor’s scarf one of the most well known items of cosplay‚ up there with Princess Leia’s hair buns.
Of course you could BUY a Super Scarf‚ but what fun is that? Knit your own! I happen to have the Official Doctor Who Scarf Pattern available on my website. Yes‚ it will take you a while to make‚ but think of how super your scarf will make you feel.
What do you think of this trend? Do you have a super scarf or the throwback Doctor Who version? What knit trends are you excited about for 2016?
