Medallion Scarf

This thing is just plain wrong – so wrong. Just what sort of puke-y green colour is that anyways and why on earth would someone want some big huge “medallion” on their scarf?

Just where did the concept of appropriate width for scarves go? Seems her entire torso is covered by a scarf.

I think I’m going to hide now – this thing looks like it’s about ready to engulf her head and I might be next.

    Why did this poor, confused girl put her grandma’s tablecloth from the early 70’s around her neck like that?

    PS: You’ve probably seen, but just in case you haven’t, the editors of You Knit What? have given up the ghost (or the blog, as the case may be) so it’s up to you to give us our full fill of fiber fugliness!

    The colour is not only bad for the model’s complexion. it’s awful no matter WHO wears it! As for the design, it might work slightly better having gravitated a tad down to a hip, perhaps. . .

    I think she’s stolen the decorative potholders from my childhood fridge! It was that exact shade of avacado and inexplicably matched nothing else in the kitchen. I’ve been wondering where those went.

  5. Flo says:

    Ahhhh…….YUCK. Might have looked a wee bit better in thread and draped over the mantle, but it is too wide, too bulky and an ugly color for a scarf.

  6. Pat says:

    This has to be Annie’s Attic…? As a scarf this one for sure has issues. There is no hope in fixing this one either by turning it into something else or using a different color.
    Just plain bad. But having said that, someone somewhere is going to buy this pattern and make this scarf and thus embark on the great journey into crochet/knit that we all have and that is a good thing.

    I booked over here to report this travesty and see that you all are waaaaaay ahead of

    Ever wonder what to do with ALL of those old doilies? I doubt the thought of tying them around your neck never once crossed your mind.

    Back on topic: This green makes me feel sick. Why on earth would Lion Brand put this right at the top of their weekly email? Are they trying to drive customers away?!?!

  9. WildCatDancer says:

    Ahhhggh! Help me! I’m having a seventies flashback! Doesn’t anyone else see that nasty green thing is swallowing her? Oh that poor, sweet young thing. Do a little yarn modeling they said. It’s easy money they said. But they never warned her about THIS!

    Looks like it was cut from my granny’s old tablecloth…except granny had better taste than to ever use that color in her house, let alone on her person.

  11. sillybratt says:

    It’s that same puke green color that makes me think of my MIL’s kitchen… all she needs is the burnt orange and neon yellow… add some color :O)

  12. Oops says:

    Um, yah, I made this. I tried to do it in purple and made it into a wrap instead, but it still didn’t work. It looked like a tablecloth. Too bad I only realized this about a week later and had to re-make it into a ball of purple yarn.

    I thought this was absolutely hideous when I first saw it…

    I thought it would look pretty in a lighter thinner yarn, though. I ended up crocheting it in a snowy white yarn and it turned out a lot nicer than that.
