Huge, chunky and a mile long, they are my latest obsession thanks to Missoni Fall 2016 collection that, together with Les Copains, Bottega Veneta and Etro, brought back the most sumptuous scarves to keep me warm next winter. Frankly, I love them so very much, I may give into the trend (and honestly, I can't even call it a trend, but more - revived classic) as we speak and will definitely be knitting something, too.
What I adore about the latest idea is how the scarf moved away from its accessories role and became an essential part of the look, either repeating its texture and hue or mimicking the precise pattern of clothing in a matter of a well-trained chameleon. Makes a lot of sense and also elevates the outfit to a totally new level. Besides, they are so fabulous, liberating and fun!
Now I am wondering if Sonia Rykiel or Chloe are going to join the club... Would be nice, wouldn't it?
On a side-note from a long-time knitter - should you decide to make your own, go for imperfection-forgiving melange wools if you worry about the finish, pick a super chunky yarn - when in a rush to finish your project as soon as possible, consider horizontal stripes to use up left-overs and whip up a cable-knit pattern whenever your patience, schedule and experience allow.
