Scarves Pretending to be Something Else

When I came up the idea of a scarf making challenge, I never dreamed there were so many different kinds of scarves out there.  I am especially fascinated by scarves that are pretending to be some other mundane item.    I suppose you could make any item out of fabric, stretch it's proportions and call it a scarf.  I wonder if there are any knife and fork scarves, or ears of corn scarves, or skyscraper scarves???
From what I've found so far, I wouldn't be surprised.
So, my lovely Ring Your Neck participants, here is a funny list of pretender scarves:

This scarf is pretending to be a fox stole.
You can buy the pattern for this fox scarf at
underthemountain's etsy store.
This scarf  by Sachiko at Tea Rose Home is made from an old cardigan.
Sachiko jokes that this scarf looks like something a forest guardian would wear.
She may be right, but I'd wear it in a heartbeat.

We might not all need to wear a bacon scarf to prove it though!
I hope you enjoyed this little post.  I had fun making it.

Happy crafting and big hugs from Montana,
