My Bow Scarf
My bow scarf
I've been fascinated with this seemingly complicated light lacy knot for .. well forever.. and I've always wanted to make something similarly seemingly complicated, but actually not complicated at all.. and here's what I designed!
The hardest thing in this scarf is not the Solomon's (Lover's) knot but getting them all to be equal sized and neat - and after a few lines, its actually a breeze.
The cute combination looks like a cute little bow - so hey.. that's the name explained!
I was keen on adding it to my "collection" well in time for the festive season. I am huge on 'making a gift' for any season/occasion/any time. Off late, gifts at weddings and engagements are also becoming a thing of the past - the smart(er) young gen prefer to get their own gifts and decorate their new homes their way (and who can blame them, eh?)
But a hand-made (especially for you with love) .. aah, who can resist that?
So here's hoping this scarf too brings on many a smile to both the gifter and 'giftee' :-)
The scarf can be found in my rav store or at http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/accessory/bow-scarf/79500 OR http://www.ravelry.com/projects/shyamanivas/bow-scarf.

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
