Vintage Recycled Neck Warmers

Following a trip to the second hand-store where I stuff as many sweaters and other wool garments as I can into a grocery bag for $3, I set home to work on my latest recycling project.   After having designed a pattern using triangle shapes, the one-of-a-kind patchwork neck warmers and scarves come to life, each one with its own unique features. 

The ends of some of the scarves are fashioned from unique sweater cuffs, or pockets from a jacket. A blanket stitch, hand-covered buttons or the original buttons from the garment are added to complete the look. 

I will soon have a pdf pattern available for making one.  It will include 4 pages of easy-to-follow directions with pictures for each step.  If you have any further questions, please feel free to leave me a note or send me an e-mail at

UPDATE:  2/6/10... With the honor of being "Guest Diva" on the Domestic Diva  website, the pdf pattern to make the Vintage Recycled Neck Warmers is currently being made available at no charge.  When you get to the home page, click on Diva's Closet.
