Fashion

It’s interesting to keep an eye on what’s going on in the high end of the fashion world now and again, if only to get inspiration.

Toast.com ScarfWhilst wandering through the internet I came across this scarf from Toast – whose clothes I love. This plain rib scarf is knitted in cashmere yarn which goes a long way to explain the £139.00 price tag

 

 

So we went on a hunt for a similar pattern – if it’s in Toast then it must be the height of chic! This King Cole pattern fitted the brief- you might choose to make it longer and add a few stitches to make it wider so you can get that wrap around a few times effect.

So, because you’re only using two balls, you’ll be able to splash out on a gorgeous yarn, you’ll want something lovely and soft.

 

 

 

 

We recommend any of these yarns to make up this scarf

Everyone’s favourite, Stylecraft is great value and comes in a huge range of colours. This is Burgundy and two 100g balls will set you back £4.20.

Adriafil Regina – (which according to the label is the official speed knitting wool- who knew?) is slightly thicker than double knit, it being a European yarn. Its a gorgeous yarn, 100{437da79a641beddbf557819e503888f42c8d43a4ab6f92450338035fb485510f} merino so there’s that luxurious edge to it.  Four 50g balls will be £14.40  Not bad at all!

 

 

This Ophelia yarn from Sirdar is an acrylic/nylon/polyester mix which has the feel of fur and so is incredibly soft. It has a hint of glitter running through it so perhaps would be suitable for a glamourous evening out. Four 50g balls is £11.60.image

Sirdar Sublime, is cashmere, merino and silk mix, it’s a gorgeous yarn in this soft shade. It’s getting nearer that Toast Cashmere feel and would be a treat every time you wore it and who doesn’t want cashmere, merino and silk wrapped round their neck in this weather!  Four 50g balls would be £22.00, not at all out of the way for such luxury.

So keep an eye out for garments that inspire you, tell us and we’ll have a look what we can match it with. We’ll be haute couture for a fraction of the cost – add in the therapy of the knitting and you’re laughing!

See you next time!
