    Large scarves and cowls. Those are the mainstays that keep me warm.

  • Amrey

    I love anything Ann Budd does.

  • Cindy Hawk-Souppa

    cowls are my style…I love the versatility…can be capelets, neckwarmers, or hoods…they allow for so much personalization in length and width…and you don’t have ends that fall forward and drip in your way!

  • Sherri Napier

    I love to make scarves, they make great gifts for Christmas. Just knitting my first cowls.

    I like to wear small shawls as scarves…so lightweight yet so cozy!

    Scarves always make the nicest gifts. They are easy to make, but can be as intricate or simple as you want.

    Pretty! I love wearing scarves as a way to show off my brooch collection, as well as keep my neck warm in frosty Northeast temps. And they are fantastic gifts for others!

  • Edie

    I think right now my favorite type of scarf to wear is a wider longer wrap. I’m cold all of the time lately because I am having chemotherapy. I love to knit scarves of all types as gifts. They always fit! There are so many great patterns, I rarely knit the same one twice!

  • marvalice1

    I love long, lacy scarves. In the bay Area, it doesn’t get too cold, and I love knitting lace, so it’s my go-to pattern. I make my scarves long so they can wrap around as much as I want them to. Scarf Style 1 was great – I’ll love Scarf Style 2!

  • Michelle Chua

    Airy Lace Scarf. It is light and airy for those summer evenings in New Zealand, plus I like how it has a channel closure. Just in case its a windy BBQ day!!
