The multi-purpose Herringbone Throw was born out of love for an amazing fabric, the super soft Ecrulet Herringbone. One hundred percent cotton, it's both cozy and breathable, perfect for warm weather breezes and chills. I love its color, drape, and feel. I even love its selvages! To show off this very special fabric I originally planned to make a very simple scarf with untouched selvages and fringed ends secured by a twinkle of sparkling gold thread.
I stuck with this plan, keeping the fabric's 45 inch width and cutting it an extra long 90 inches. Once I was done I really loved my creation, but I wasn’t so sure it was a scarf! Everyone at the Purl Bee seemed to have a different idea of how they would use it. I envisioned taking it to the beach as an all-in-one cover-up, towel and beach blanket. Page imagined curling up by a campfire with it. And Joelle wanted to wear it as a generously oversized wrap.
In the end we decided that we loved it, whatever it was! For now, I think it will live on my couch, keeping me warm on cool spring nights until summer, when I’ll take it to the beach!
