Dodgy Battenburg.

battenburg scarf

I had a great idea for a new scarf but it hasn’t turned out how I thought it might. I chose the colours thinking they were springy and new but once I’d completed it, all I could see was a bit of batternburgh. I’ve made a cake scarf.

It’s a pretty useless scarf as it’s too big. Sooo, my question is do I add a couple more sections to make it big enough to twist and double up. Or… is it acceptable to wear as is? I thought about adding a border too but can’t do that until I’ve made a decision.

There’s not much point in a scarf that’s open at the neck but the thought of revisiting a project I’d hoped was finished is annoying. But then, if I leave it, will I wear it?!

    1. I just can’t be bothered with either. I wish I’d got it right the first time! I think I should add but even if I did I don’t know if I like the pattern and colours enough….

  1. How about turning it into a cushion cover? If it still can be? I have this problem all the time, and usually I end up chucking the not-quite-loved scarf into the recycling bin. Such a waste of wool isn’t it!

  2. I love your expression in one of the photos! I’m so glad I’m not the only one who finishes things and then questions what I’ve made. For what it’s worth I like it and lurve your sunny daffs! πŸ™‚

  3. This reminds me of the shrug I have at the back of my drawer, doomed to be thrown out one day having only been worn once! The colours of your scarf are so pretty, and perfect for spring or Easter. Spring wreath? Not sure to wear obviously!

    1. Agh, I don’t know!! I like it but I don’t love it. I know it’d be better with a bit extra so I could double up. But that’s more time spent on something I’ve lost enthusiasm for. Could you regift your shawl? I was tempted by a Giveaway kind of thing but that’s lots of effort isn’t it!?
