Back in the autumn I knit this scarf out of the last remnants of 6 balls of Rowan Big Wool which I'd bought a few years ago to make a poncho (I know, I know). I thought that it would make a very nice Christmas present for someone but then completely forgot to take it up to Bolton with me. Still, their loss, my gain as I realised last night that I had the perfect accessory to muffle up against the big freeze.

Moss stitch scarf

Things I love about this scarf: it's extra wide so I can keep everything warm from my nose to my neck, it's very thick so even a single layer blocks out the icy air, and it has pockets great for keeping hands warm and for throwing amusing shapes.

That's beautiful! I've been meaning to make a scarf with pockets ever since I spotted this one : . £119 full price (and now a snip in the sale at, er, £89- !!!). Yours is much nicer, too - I love the moss stitch; so warm and cosy.

Haha brilliant!!! Looks great, I always drool over that yarn when I go in yarn shops!! Loving the leg warmers too! x

Such a fab idea, and so simple! I'm forever having to take my gloves off to do up coats and so on on playground duty so this would be a great solution. Pics next, please, of the poncho!!

I love the pockets, I've been coverting a scarf in accessorize that is very similar. Looks really cosy and I love moss stitch as you know!
