Hand Knit Scarves

If there's one accessory I simply CANNOT live without, it's a scarf. As the season change, I move from light silk scarves to pashminas and homemade knits. Knit scarves are unbelievably warm and they add a certain charm to just about any outfit. If you've ever tried to knit (and I have, quite unsuccessfully thank you very much) you know how LONG one of these scarves can take to make. You also know that the care, attention, and craftsmanship of a well made scarf is unlike many handmade goods. I've scoured Etsy to find some of my favorite knit scarves to share with you and these all happen to be under $100.

Luxurious Pure Wool Knit Scarf - The Bridget II cowl $79

via tickled pink knits

Super soft scarflette in blue gray $26

via Knme

Ruffle Neck Warmer Olive Green, Hand Knit $22

via Beaded Wire

Ginger and Camouflage Ribbed Scarf $85

via Urban Knit

Neverending Scarf $63

via celapiu

Chai Latte Scarf Pure Organic Cotton Knit Wrap $79

via tickled pink knits
Sure you might be able to find a knit scarf at a retail store that would be cheaper, but I promise, if there's anything you spend money on this fall, invest in a good scarf (and maybe a good pair of boots too.)
What's the ONE accessory you can't live without?

Those are so lovely! I totally wish it was cold enough for scarves here.

One accessory I can't live without? My glasses! And sunglasses! Being able to see is definitely a priority.

I am a hand knitter of accessories, and lover of huge scarves! But I agree, that scarves take FOREVER to knit.
I recently discovered cowls and neckwarmers, that are just as comforting and warm, but take a fraction of the time to knit.
You should try it.

(Being an English girl in Canada, I also can't live without thermal underwear!! I love it!)

Great picks.
What I need is a tote.
I am a knitter and I usually bring a tote with a project in it where ever I go. In the tote there is usually a book and a few other things too.

Morgan said...

The cowl has a luxurious feel to it, but the scarflette and the ruffle neck warmer are just irresistible. So fun and charming!!

I'm inspired to break out my knitting needles...

Jaime said...

My Blackberry- I think that'd be an accessory, right? :)
Though for winter- def need cozy scarves!

Rachel said...

I am in love with the cowl neck right now. I found another Etsy shop last week that I fell in love with and not bad for the price!

I desperately need the Neverending Scarf. It is absolutely stunning. I so wish that I knew how to knit - I would be making scarves 24/7! :)

The one accessory I can't live without...cute knit hats! :)

Iva said...

I love scarves! The Ginger and Camouflage Ribbed Scarf is beautiful!

Design Actually said...

LOVE these scarves, but I live in Phoenix so we're nowhere near needing to wear anything warm :( I do love the lightweight scarves from Old Navy & such, but for now my #1 accessory is my new pair of flat black boots.

Magchunk said...

I've actually been contemplating one of the cowl scarves from the first seller (a chunkier one). I like scarves too but when it's raining here it's almost too sloppy to wear a scarf. :( They are so wonderful on chilly dry mornings though.

TERI REES WANG said...

Oh, ya..I am all about my giant size scarf = "Travel blanket" ;P

Hanako66 said...

these are so beautiful! I love oversized scarves when it's cool. You can take off your coat and wrap yourself in them when you are inside!

Absolutely Not Martha said...

I like Luxurious Pure Wool Knit Scarf - The Bridget II cowl .....it looks so serene even in winters

Blair said...

Oh, all so cozy I love that first one!

Simply Mel said...

I just re-learned how to knit, and it is very time consuming, but I love it! Hubs isn't to fond of it, but once he wraps the incredibly soft grey cashmere number I'm needling away at - he will be won over!

Abigail Leigh said...

The first one looks so soft and cozy...

S and O said...

yummmm I love hand knitted and crocheted scarves, they are indeed extremely warm!!!

talking about boots...any ideas on stylish affordable boots?...i've been endlessly searching places, but I can't find much that aren't UGG boots.

Chic Coles (Cole Design) said...

I love the first one, it looks so comfortable!

Mandy Jean said...

These are beautiful. I want one of each :)

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous scarfs! Makes me not dread winter as much... ♥

Courtney said...

I agree - I often have a scarf around my neck, 12 months of the year. I especially love the first scarf you've included here. So cozy.

Serena from Style on a String said...

That neverending scarf is killer

Erin @ SYL: Slipcover Your Life said...

LOVE the neverending scarf...

Sam said...

These are gorgeous - I always, always have about five different woolen scarves on the go in winter! It's my favourite thing about winter actually! The accesssory I can't live with - my jewellery! Especially my rings!

Diana said...

I just did a trade with Franca from Oranges and Apples and bought something from Polkadot Robot- I'm so jealous they have the ability to craft something so beautiful.

Lizzy said...

The green one is just too cute!

Elena said...

Thank you kindly for including my Cowl & Scarf among your lovely picks! Happy to read all the great comments too :) Many thanks!
