Seen and Noted: Hot for Fall

Lately, I've been seeing tube scarves. Or cowls.  Or so-called Endless Scarves. They haunt me.  Style bloggers, celebs running errands, and Alexander Wang all seem to be obsessed with them.

What, you don't think that looks like much?  Just add this to any old outfit, and voila, instant Sartorialist photo.  And funny enough, they've grown on me.  I'm beginning to think I want one as a chic alternative to the wrap-and-go rectangle I have always relied on when the weather turns cool.  Part snood, part jewelry, they have a monastic quality, and yet, they seem modern and effortless.

Only 200-some American dollars and you're set.  Which is the goof for us knitters because we all have the perfect yarn languishing in the stash.

Just cast on 150 stitches (give or take some for texture or colour pattern of your choice), knit for 16 inches, and you've saved yourself two hundred bucks and will be the envy of all your fashionista friends (assuming you have any).
