Style it! Wrap it! Scarf it! // Thrift Style Thursday and Free Crochet Pattern

What’s your favorite fall accessory? I can definitely say that scarves are in my top 5 . So when we decided to style scarves for Thrift Style Thursday this week, I knew that I wanted to find a scarf that was special, with a twist. And I found one, after spending all weekend crocheting this piece, I am ready to show it off in this week’s thrifted outfit.

Cowl Neck scarves have been in for a while! They also solve one big problem – you don’t have to tie them 😉

And now for the pattern and a little more about the scarf! I have been thrifting for craft supplies for over 2 years now – fabrics, yarn, supplies, beads, you name it, I’ve seen it or thrifted it at one point 🙂 The yarn I used to make the scarf is from Goodwill, and all I know about it, is that it’s some sort of blend. Trust me, I can tell acrylic from everything else!

And if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen this:


And here is the pattern for it:


The final measurements for the scarf (folded in half are 16″ high and 17″ wide).

Let me know if you’d like me to start video tutorials for the crocheting patterns, since I am planning on adding more crochet items into my posts from now on!

Thrifting for Treasure: Scarves from Z to A!

This Thrifting for Treasure post is going to be different from all the rest that I have ever written! This time I am going to show you the freecycled scarves that I was able to pick up from a person, who lives about 10 minutes away from me.

What is the difference between freecycling and thrifting? The first one is FREE! The only catch is – you never know what you are going to get inside, just like with life! (Anyone noticed me hinting at Forest Gump here?)

So today, I played dress up and took pictures of all the scarves I got this past week! I am also showing the different ways of wearing scarves, and that is always popular! Hope you like it!
