Subversive Femme

Christmas Week – A Useful Tweed Scarf, c. 1950s

Do you have a stylish, chic and hard to buy for person in your life? Maybe a hand-knit scarf like this could be the answer.

There’s something really classic and enduring about this scarf – I especially love the colour way of green, almond and white.

From ‘Accessories by Stitchcraft’, I believe it comes from the early-mid 1950s.
Knitted in Patons Fingering 2-ply on 2.25mm needles, I would suggest a light-fingering based on the gauge.
