10 Ways To Wear a "Sharf" (Shawlette or Scarf)

Now for the many ways to wear my "Watercolor Sharf" made for Elisabeth Andree's blog contest... The long thin triangular shape and the stretchy fabric of the single crochet chain stitch makes it easy to wear as a Shawlette or a Scarf!
As a Shawl it can be worn...
Around Shoulders
With a Collar

Over the Shoulder
Take special notice of the lovely Shawl Pin hand-carved by Jimbo Price, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the Crochet Liberation Front retreat last October. Check out his blog, Jimbo's Front Porch, just 2 more days to enter his Hook Give Away and Auction!

The long ends can be wrapped around and tied into a Shrug...

As a Scarf it can be worn...
Wrapped once
Wrapped Twice
Pulled Through

As a Hood
A Cowl

Or even a skirt!

I am sure there are many more ways to wear this garment I have not even thought of yet, the possibilities are endless...


  1. I love your sharf!:) The pattern is so gorgeous and shows the colour change so wonderful. It looks great with the lovely shawl pin.
