Thank you to my lovely sister, Meg, for modeling the scarves. As we were shooting the photos, the front door kept opening and, one by one, my girls and niece appeared looking for their mamas.
"Hey, here's proof you can even provide childcare while wearing this scarf!" Meg exclaimed as the girls climbed all over her.
For the scarf pictured above and below, I used an inexpensive linen blend in honey and potent purple. The fabric turned out to be a bit scratchy—no more scratchy than wool but not exactly soft. The linen was much easier to work with than the jersey knit suggested in the original pin, however.
Interested in making your own braided scarf? Here's the tutorial.
