Cowl neck scarf pattern – Threads 60
Does anyone have the pattern for the cowl neck scarf (article on page 54 of issue 60 of Threads) that they can let me have?
I was given a pile of old Threads magazines by a great friend but they have been ‘canibalised’ so not all the articles are there and this scarf looked just the thing to make for my horseriding friends.
Thanks in advance of your help.
Hope this helps
Thankyou so much rekha! I am sure a number of my friendswill enjoy one of these from Santa this year. (I might even get one myself if I am really lucky!)
Thanks for reminding me about these scarves. They will be great for DH and me this fall on our motorcycles. Cathy
You never fail to amaze me.
Do you go on long tours on the highways or out in the sticks
We got our bikes last year. Something I had always wanted to do, only had never let my DH in on the secret before. When we gave up milking, I suggested getting the bikes as something to do for ourselves to fill up some new leisure time we never had before. We usually do day trips, or sometimes overnights. I do not do big highways, we prefer to mosey along the secondary highways and backroads, more to see that way. We often take a small tour in the late afternoon, stopping in to see all the small local attractions in our area. It is fun to play local tourist in your own neighbourhood. We have a pair of old 1983 Yamaha Maxim 750s. DH did not want to spend a lot until he figured out wether I liked it for sure or not. HA, I put on more kms than he did last year! Cathy
I know a few people who've taken up with motorcycles after the kids have grown up and left. You live in a wonderful part of the country to enjoy travelling the back roads. Enjoy!(I live near Mallorytown....moved here six months ago from North Gower. We're practically neighbours. ;-) )
Actually, we Were neighbours! I live just off Hwy 43 between Kemptville and Winchester! We spend a lot of time touring along the Seaway between Cornwall and Gananoque. Is it possible that we do know each other or have mutual friends? Cathy
Isn't that funny! We moved in November, but we were just on the north side of the river from Kemptville, between Donnelly Dr. and Paden Rd. (at Harnett)....not far from you at all.As to whether we know each other or have mutual friends, you never know. Though we have only lived in the region since 2005. DH is in the military and posted to Kingston currently, NDHQ in Ottawa before last summer. I have family in Oxford Mills and some friends in and around Kemptville. I just began working part-time at the Mallorytown post office....you probably know that Mallorytown is about half way between Brockville and Gananoque. It is a lovely region in which to live.
I just sent you a PM. It would be nice to have a sewing buddy in the area, you are not that far still. My Dad is in Prescott. I have family in Kingston. Cathy

I'm sending you an email. A sewing buddy would be nice indeed! :-)
They certainly look useful. I'm not sure which my husband would be more concerned about - me on a motorcycle or my horse!
Have (warm) fun on your motorcycle.
Truth be told, I am scared silly of horses. My middle girl has ridden with TrOTT(Therapeutic Riding Association of Ottawa Carleton) for almost 10 years now as part of her physiotherapy. I have helped out a couple of times as a sidewalker, and was scared the whole time. I have sat on the back of a horse a couple of times, but the height gets to me. I figure a horse has brains and can think for itself, a motorcycle does not. Actually, the skills involved are very similar. Cathy
If my horse has a brain it is rarely engaged! Though to be honest the last thing you want is a horse that thinks for itself - it might just decide it knows better than you.
I had a mentally handicapped daughter that I thought would love to be around my horse but she hated the horses with a passion. Being sat on a horse was one of the few things that made her cry. Riding can be great therapy so I was a little disappointed but had to respect her feelings. I get great pleasure from riding and it is a great head clearer - sometimes I can even work out my sewing bugs on board good old neddy.
Enjoy your bike rides - you are absolutely right about 'visiting' your own area. It can be a real eye opener.
Here is a copy of a page from Audrey Childress's booklet, Twenty Fashions in a Hatbox, that gives instructions for the "gazelle scarf." It is the exact same thing as shown in threads. The instructions also show a different way of wearing it.
Thankyou DonnaKaye this is very interesting. I will have to try both methods of making and wearing. Gives me the excuse for making multiples!
Donna, when is that booklet going to go into reprint so I can buy it?????? Cathy
I've decided that since I've gotten so many requests for it, I'm just going to photocopy it and sell it as is, unglamorous as it is. All I've got to decide on is a price....d.
Refer to my posting in this thread for the "gazelle scarf" which is Audrey Childress's instructions from her Twenty Changes in a Hatbox booklet.
Thank you for the instructions for the Gazelle scarf. It does look a lot like the Threads scarf, but I noticed that the scale-drawing for the latter shows a curved center-back seam. Did you notice that? Why would the seam be curved?
I just made this scarf and am a little confused about it. One side of the triangle is 12" and the other is 14", which then makes the length of the two sides of the center back seam different. Or am I mis-understanding something? Thanks.
