I'm seeing scarves in the stores getting longer and skinnier.

Hooray for a fashion that a short, overweight woman with a short, thick neck can wear without looking like Jaba the Hutt.

I love the beauty of scarves, but didn't have any since all the fashionable scarf shapes and wraps of the recent past looked so bad on me. But a skinny scarf draped low around my neck and knotted just under my bustline ACTUALLY WORKS!

(turning mental cartwheels)

Current issue just in my mail box of Threads has that mobius scarf KOOS styled featured. Thinking that could be reverse engineered into a narrower look... In the end it is all about proportions.. style the 'trends' into what works for you personally. Why we sew / craft / create ? right?

I'm currently taking one yard of fabric and making three scarfves. I'm using the wided rolled hem and longer stitches perfect.

I just made 3 infinity scarves from 2 yards of 60 inch fabric and I'm pretty excited about how they turned out. The fabric is a polyester woven, a little heavier than chiffon in a classy print. I cut them 20 x 72, sewed the lengthwise seam, then the remaining crosswise seam. 3 Christmas gifts for less than $3 each!

If you ever have a chance to attend a sewing show/expo where
Nancy Nix-Rice has a booth, she has tons of lightweight polyester skinny scarves and they're priced very reasonably. ( If you are in an ASG chapter, perhaps they can schedule an event with her; ours did and it was great)

3KillerBs, you'd be turning hands free cartwheels if you had my sister. She gets bored living out in the country and knits and crochets like crazy. Sent her a big box of yarn thinking it would help her with making gifts for everyone and she has sent me 3 of the skinny scarves! Woo-hoo, I love them. She was a little surprised at how long and how skinny when she asked me for dimensions, but they look great.

Don't wear much more than a nice polar fleece vest for winter and love having the color from the scarf along with the feel of winter that I get from wearing it.
