Ocean Sunrise Colour Block Scarf

Whoo!  Busy, busy, day... but, I did get this scarf completed, and I have to say, I like it!

As soon as I saw the colours all together, it reminded me somehow of the ocean; waking up on vacation, and seeing the sun rise over the sea, with the blue sky, the silver surf and a glow of red as the sun comes up!

This scarf/cowl, which I have named "Ocean Sunrise" is a lovely soft, chunky, and beautifully squishy garment that is sheer pleasure to wear, and it will keep you warm on the coldest of days!


Made with Chunky/Bulky (12ply) yarn, and a 7mm hook, it works up very, very quickly.  You could have this completed within a day.

Why not give it a try?

I think you will like it also!

Sew three buttons onto the Silver end of the scarf, so that the Blue edging overlaps it when fastened.  Now you can wear your scarf as a classic open ended scarf, tied in front, doubled up around your neck, or you can button it and wear it in various ways as a cowl.

Enjoy!
