More Pictures of the Anemone Coat Check Scarf

I designed the Anemone Coat Check Scarf because I wanted to solve a problem. When going to restaurants and parties in the winter, I would often brave the winter cold because I was afraid of losing my gloves and hats while hanging my coat. This coat check scarf is a big pocket, so you can store your mittens inside the scarf and securely hang all of your knit accessories on a hanger.

This pattern is available to purchase ($2.50) through Ravelry.

This was my first time using KnitPicks Capra yarn, and I have to say that I loved the way it felt on my hands. This project took just over 2 skeins of yarn, leaving enough of one skein for another small project.

The buttons I used in this scarf I also purchased through KnitPicks, but unfortunately they have been discontinued. I still have 3 of these buttons left, but I really wish that I could get a couple more this size for another knitting design I have in mind.

The hardest part of this scarf was aligning the snaps to sew them onto the scarf correctly. It was easy to sew one side of the snaps to the same position of the buttons, and for the other side I started at the corner and worked my way up the side. I would quickly fix each snap into place while I had some of the other ones snapped to make sure I had things aligned correctly.

The Anemone Coat Check Scarf is a fairly quick knit, and although there is a lot of repetition, I didn't find myself getting bored.

I am now waiting for cold weather so I can have the chance to wear this scarf out!
