Quick and Easy Dickey Scarf - One For You and One to Give



It may still be Winter but there are so many days when a wool scarf is a little overkill. This Wrap Around Dickey Scarf is the perfect solution. It is quick and easy to make and would make a lovely last minute gift for Valentines Day for mom or little sis or your best friend. 



I originally found the instructions for this scarf in a box of patterns I purchased at an estate sale. It is a page from SEW NEWS dated November 1987 and the pattern is designed by Claire Shaeffer. The instructions suggest a silky print but mine is made of cotton print. I imagine fleece or wool would work just as well.  Make a few for you and to give. Download instructions HERE.

  1. It looks snazzy, especially under the jacket!

  2. I agree - very classy - my mother always wore a scarf with her jackets, coats, and suits. Lots of times she made them specific to one outfit.

  4. Just the thing for me to make for my daughter. She has some very tailored jackets that she can only wear camisoles under, one of these would be so much more Chic!
