Knit the Look: Josefine Nielsen’s plaid scarf

How to knit a version of Josefine Nielsen's plaid scarf

I’ve been saving this image of Danish model Josefine Nielsen and its time has finally come. Back-to-school season is here, so it’s safe to start dreaming again of trench coats! And plaid! But what if the plaid scarf was knitted instead? To emulate this one, all we need is Stephen West’s Kex scarf pattern and a slight shift in color palette for the Brooklyn Tweed Shelter yarn. In place of the original colors, I’d suggest A) Fossil, B) Long Johns, C) Birdbook and D) Faded Quilt.

See Vanessa’s original post for a better look at the trench!

And for this week’s ICYMI pick, since there are so many new readers since then (hi, everybody!), how about the introduction to Knit the Look.

  1. Hurrah for autumn and cool days that need trenches and scarves. Cannot wait! Which reminds me…I have some yarn and a pattern for mittens somewhere. Must get to them soon! ;-)
