I love everything Anthropologie, especially their knitwear. But unfortunately, they don't have any stores where I live, and I'm not filthy rich.

I really loved this scarf from their winter collection.

So simple, yet so chic.
I had to make my own.

whole thing!
The horizontal ribbing is really flattering, and an interesting alternative to regular old vertical ribbing.
To make it, I cast on as many stitches as I could squish on a long circular needle. I knit until it was wide enough (22 rows I think), then used a sewn cast off to ensure it was as stretchy as the cast on.

My pompoms ended up more like really chubby tassels, but they're still pretty cute.

Really like it!

Thanks for looking,
Kelly

I added a tutorial/guideline for those interested.

Cute...that is quite the inspiration.I was just thinking I wouldn't be making anymore scarves for a while but this may have just snapped me out of my scarf-slump. Smiley Their prices are criminal--I am so glad craftsters make such rad copies!!

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.

It's actually more purple that it appears in those pictures.
It's Paton's Rumor, and its an alpaca/acrylic blend

Very Nice!
I love the idea of going the other way.
Did it seem to knit up faster because it was only 22 rows?
