a Commuter Cowl and an infinity scarf

Recently I participated in a [mostly] handmade gift swap with some blogging friends of mine. I say mostly handmade, because many of us sent fabric instead of something handmade, but who doesn’t love that?! I got a fantastic pile of fabric that will  be seeing the cutting table soon.

I made a couple of scarves for my swap partner, RaeAnna. As I’ve gotten to know her, I knew that she would love these two chevron prints I had in my fabric stash.

With this flannel chevron from JoAnn Fabrics, I made a Commuter Cowl [pattern by Very Shannon]. Shannon is also the amazing designer behind the Sally Dress I raved about here.  photo b367d1bb-9a57-4bb1-bbc1-1ec9573efa47_zpsb655aa3b.jpg

I bought this pattern two Christmases ago to make for my sister [though I forgot to photograph it], and I really love it. I think it’s a super unique cowl, plus it comes together very quickly and easily. Great for those moments when you’ve procrastinated and don’t have a gift for someone… not that I would ever do that [ahem]. Scarves are one of my go-to gifts, and I really recommend having this pattern in your collection. photo 7ba1f405-7e73-4b19-808c-992b30d9831d_zps99462e2d.jpg

And I whipped up a quick infinity scarf out of this chevron knit from Girl Charlee to send along with the Commuter Cowl. Even though I’m not usually on the chevron bandwagon, this fabric was so yummy and soft that it seriously made me want to hop on board.

Next week I have a tutorial and a ridiculously awesome giveaway for you! To make sure you don’t miss a post, subscribe via email in my sidebar or via Bloglovin’ with this handy dandy button:
