Narnia Scarf (also Magic Midnight variation) for true winter weather


There are some beautiful photographs of Northern Britain having been swept by waves and snow, as the blizzards have journeyed across the Atlantic to visit.

The cold weather has made me thankful for all the scarves I crocheted over the Christmas period for the family!  The one in the photograph above was dubbed the Narnia Scarf by the children; although the photograph doesn't do the sparkly yarn justice, the grey is speckled generously with bright diamond glittering like snow in a grey sky above the snow-topped green trees.  I think it really is reminiscent of a Narnian woodland!

My mother has also been thankful for the gift in this weather and has been wearing it out these past weeks!  I made a variation for my grandma who tends to wear more formal black coats; Magic Midnight has black yarn taking the outside rows instead of the sparkly grey above... the glittering grey yarn comes next for the twinkling frosted sky... and white yarn replaced the green for snow covered trees.  It looks truly beautiful, but I don't want to ask for it to photograph... she needs to keep hold of it in weather like this!
