1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Simplicity 4072 on: November 22, 2006 06:55:13 AM
I made this in stretchy cotton and silk velvet (or rather my Mum did). Same problems as mentioned above (one sided ties, velvet is a pain to work with) and it was a bit short over the chest. Though overall I was pretty happy with it. Did I mention it was my wedding dress?

Best of luck! I too dream to make this scarf.

I found a couple of patterns if you don't have one already.

I think the crochet chain is better for your shape, but the ribbon is more dressy. No reason why you can't swap them over whenever you like.

Simple but beautiful. And useful. You might have convinced me to make one!

If you manage to get to John Lewis you could always combine it with a trip to Liberty in Regent Street. Its smaller, but has a better range of some things (small needles, sock wool) and has lovely ambience!

I am biased because it is just round the corner from where I work!

I vote for Rowan Calmer. It is a cotton/microfibre mix, very soft. It is springy like a wool, so good for hugging socks. It comes in a manly blue, brown and black. It is double knitting weight, which I think translates to your worsted. I know you're not supposed to but I put mine in the washing machine and they were fine. A tiny bit felted and shrunk, but nothing like wool does. Its expensive but I love it.

Those are lovely! I like how the cardigan is quite simple conpared to some of those manic "dale of norway" type things. Not every inch is covered in pattern.
