Organic scarf

Thanks to the John Lewis sale I was able to buy a lot of beautiful naturally dyed organic cotton. My idea was to crochet a large shawl for which I had already found a pattern. But after reading Yoola's article and doing a quick analyzes of my shop I decided to produce several organic summer scarves - thanks to the sale I can sell them really cheap.

The pattern I used for the first two of the scarves is lacy but it also has regularly placed bobbles which gives it tick texture. I tested the prototype scarf on my trip to Belgium and the result is very good. The color fits summer outfits very well and the scarf can be worn loosely to act as an accessory or can be closely wrapped around the neck to protect you from cold summer evenings.

I will post the scarf on etsy very soon.


  1. Hi Maria! I had no idea you were so talented! Good luck with your shop :) Sherin & I are starting a clothes shop soon, but we won't be making our own stuff - just reselling things at a very discounted price!

  2. Very jealous that I can't crochet :) - sounds like a fun project! Can't wait to see the end result!
