So here are three cotton scarves to help bridge that transition – perfect for days down at the beach or meeting up with friends for an afternoon picnic in the park.
And perfect, too, if you are unable to wear wool. There used to be such poor options for non-wool yarn but things are much easier these days, with a wider range of options and on-the-dot fashion colours.
Kassiopi is a lovely fishing village in the island of Corfu and indeed, these scarves are reminiscent of the scents and sounds of that beautiful part of the world – the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, lazy summer days and evening cocktails by the pool....
There are three scarves in the collection. The slim scarf has been worked in a lovely fresh lime-green colour using a Sportweight cotton/Modal yarn. This gives a lovely draping fabric for a long, slim-line scarf. The medium scarf, meanwhile, is in a delicate aqua shade and has been worked in a 100% cotton Aran/heavy worsted-weight yarn. This is so soft and cozy! I made this version a little shorter and love the way it drapes around your shoulders to keep away the evening chills.
Both of these feature deeply-incised chevrons interlaced along the length of the scarf to give a wonderfully dynamic design.
This wide version has two repeats of the chevron design which gives a beautiful sense of balance, symmetry and calm. The result is a wide statement scarf with just the right degree of coverage for bare shoulders in a cool restaurant.
And of course, all the scarves are fully reversible which makes them easy to drape, wrap or tie in place.
