I love everything about this scarf. As a seller, it is easy to make and whips up in about 45 minutes. There are no extra embellishments or details to meddle with. And, it’s easy to display.

As a typically scarf-avoidant non-fashionista, this beauty gives all of the warmth but none of the bulk that causes me to leave most scarves on the shelf.

As buyers, my customers love this one because it’s adorable, easy to wear, affordable, and it makes a great gift for teachers, girlfriends, and grandmas!

The Chevy Pull Through Scarf

I originally designed this scarf several years ago as I was creating my staple craft fair inventory. While I had more expensive neckwear options like button cowls and infinity scarves in the lineup, I was wanting a more affordable scarf option for my customers.

I was hoping to design something that I might want to wear, too. Since I don’t like scarves to be tight around my neck and I don’t appreciate the added bulk that some scarves cause, I knew it needed to be easily adjusted and to lay flat. I, also, wanted it to be light enough to be tucked into a jacket for a more polished look.

And this is what I came up with, a fully adjustable, flat laying, keyhole scarf that I love!

Now, it’s become my most popular item with my craft fair buyers. They happily pair it with their favorite hat to create sets for themselves and as gifts. It’s a total win/win.

Once you make your first one, I know you’ll love it as much as I do!

    What is the multiple if I wanted to make this keyhole scarf in a medium weight yarn?

    • Hi Deborah,
      You would use a multiple of 4 to increase the width of the scarf when using a medium weight yarn.
      Hope that helps!
