Raphia round bag

They have been a fashion trend for years. My mum told me, her aunt used to make raphia bags for her and her sisters when they were young. When I was a teenager, I remember raphia bags were very popular used as beach bags. They usually had a rectangular shape, wood handles and sometimes they were embellished with ruffled edging pieces of furniture. Summer season 2018, raphia bags fill the shops’ windows again. This time they come in a round shape, neutral colors, leather handles and tassels or pompoms to make everything look more funny and summery. Raise your hand if you crocheter, looking at them , you haven’t tought about making one yourself too. I did and this is what came out.

I fell in love with the beautiful colors of Katia Raphia in the shade 52. I loved its warm nuances, they are so versatile that can be paired with everyday looks. My trusty 6mm crochet hook, was by my side to make the magic happen.

The general pattern consists on working two shells, identical, joined along their circumference and leaving an opening to install the zipper. Personally I don’t like openwork patterns for bags, this is why I chose to use the single crochet stitch which looks quite tight and gives also some rigidity and shape to the work.

I chose the single crochet stitch to give my bag a thight look and a quite rigid shape.

To begin the pattern, into a magic loop work 8 single crochet. Then, slip stitch into the first stitch.

round1 : ch2. Make 2 sc into each stitch below. Repeat until the end of the round, then sl st into the first st. (16 sts)

round2 : ch2. *Make 1 sc into the stitch below, then make 2sc into the very next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first st. (24 sts)

round3 : ch2. *Make 1 sc into the next two stitches, then make 2sc into the very next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first st. (32 sts)

round4 : ch2. *Make 1 sc into the next three stitches, then make 2sc into the very next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first st. (40 sts)

round5 : ch2. *Make 1 sc into the next four stitches, then make 2sc into the very next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first st. (48 sts)

round6 : ch2. *Make 1 sc into the next five stitches, then make 2sc into the very next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first st. (56 sts)

round7 : ch2. *Make 1 sc into the next six stitches, then make 2sc into the very next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first st. (64 sts)

round8 : ch2. *Make 1 sc into the next seven stitches, then make 2sc into the very next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first st. (72 sts)

round9 : ch2. *Make 1 sc into the next eight stitches, then make 2sc into the very next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first st. (80 sts)

round10 : ch2. Make 1 sc into each stitch below. Repeat until the round, then sl st into the very first stitch. (80 sts)

From round11 to round15 we are going to work the widht of our bag.

round11 : ch2. Make 1 back post single crochet into each stitch below. Repeat until the round, then sl st into the very first stitch. (80 sts).

round12-15 : ch2. Make 1 single crochet into each stitch below. Repeat until the round, then sl st into the very first stitch. (80 sts).

round16: ch2. Make 1 single crochet into the next 60 stitches.

round17: ch2 and turn your work. Make 1 single crochet into the 60 stitches below.

Make another piece following the same identical pattern.

Once you have both sides of your bag done, sew them together along the last 60 stitches round.

Install the zipper on the opening on the top of your bag.

As handles, I applied a shoulder strap, since I love messenger bags. The application was super easy. The strap had two clasps and I simply inserted them into the stitches pattern and released. I just added a cute tassel as my little personal touch.

I am super super happy with how my raphia bag came out, I couldn’t be more proud of it. I feel really enthusiastic to have been able to make myself this cute fashion piece so trendy and popular right now. It is so beautiful and functional. Even the size is perfect since it holds all my everyday essentials. I also love the contrast between raphia and leather, it really makes the bag stand and gives it more personality.

I hope you too like this pattern and can’t wait to give it a try as well! Let me know and in the meantime I wish you the best crocheting times ever. I love you all, bye!!!

Stool makeover

I have been thinking to give this old stool a new life for a while.

I found it in the rental apartment I am living right now. It was in the bathroom used as soap and bath products holder. But I saw a great potential in it and with a nice covering piece, I transformed it in a comfy stool for my living room space.

This idea was actually born because of me and Valerio fighting for the chair we usually use as stool, everytime we are on the sofa watching a movie. He is always so reluctant to share his raising legs pleasure that I created one mine personal !!

To make this stool cover, I used two balls of T-shirt yarn, in a bright white color and my 12 mm crochet hook.

The pattern I made up is very simple. It is worked in round, increasing the stitches until it is needed to cover the stool circumference and then, working few rounds with no increases for the edgind.

To begin, just make 6 sc into a magic loop

round 1 : ch2, 2 sc into eact stitch below (12 sts)

round 2 : ch2, *2 sc into the very first st below, 1 sc into the next stitch*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the round (18 sts).

round 3 : ch2, *2 sc into the very first st below, 1 sc into the next 2 sts*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round (24 sts)

round 4 : ch2, *2 sc into the very first st below, 1 sc into the next 3 sts*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round (30 sts)

round 5 : ch2, *2 sc into the very first st below, 1 sc into the next 4 sts*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round (36 sts)

round 6 : ch2, *2 sc into the very first st below, 1 sc into the next 5 sts*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round (42 sts)

round 7 : ch2, *2 sc into the very first st below, 1 sc into the next 6 sts*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round (48 sts)

To begin the edge we are going to ch2 and then make 1 sc into the very next stitch below. Now point your hook into the next stitch of the previous round and make another single crochet.

Repeat until the end of the round, then slip stitch into the second chain we made at the beginning.

For round 2, chain 2, then point your hook into the very next stitch of your previous round and make 1 sc, then point your hook into your last round and make 1sc into the next stitch below. Repeat until the end of the round and until you have 4 rounds in total.

To attach the cover on my stool, I cut 4 strands of t-shirt yarn of about 50cm each. I folded them in half and inserted them into 4 stitches of the very last edging round.

Here is a close up of how I simply inserted the strands under the last round stitches.

I am so proud of how this project came out.  Now, I can’t wait for the evening to come and sit on my sofa, watching a movie and relaxing my legs on the stool I created myself. I am actually so jealous of it that I don’t share it with anybody not even with Valerio!! It is a super easy and quick project to make, also perfect for summer considering  it uses T-shirt yarn. I hope you too like this pattern, I can’t wait to see your own version and in the meantime I wish you happy summer time and happy crochet!! Byeee

Snow white|Crochet ribbed beanie

Until now I have always made my pom poms using the Clover pom pom maker, but lately I saw faux fur pom poms are being very popular. You can see them used in thousand ways, as keyrings or charms for bags, as edging for long scarves and of course on top of chunky beanies. As a pom pom lover, I couldn’t help following this fashion trend, which inspired me to create such a basic, still cute accessory for the next winter season.

To make this beanie I used some Relax yarn I had left from my previous Valerie infinity scarf and I must say it was such a great choice since I was able to end my project using only a ball of yarn. Besides being cheap, which is always a plus for crochet projects, this pattern is also super quick and easy. Even a newbie knowing only the basic stitches can follow it without any problems.

Even if the recommended size for my yarn was a 6 mm crochet hook, I have used a 4.5mm size in order to get a more defined ribbed look and also a stretchy texture.

I started by chaining 46 and remember that the initial number of stitches you crochet will define the length of your beanie.

row1 : ch1 and turn your work. 1 sc in each stitch along.

row2-32 : ch1 and turn your work. Sc in the back loop of each stitch along.

At the end of row 32 leave a long tale to close up the beanie. Using a yarn needle start going in and out of each stitch along the short side of your rectangle shape. Then pull it tightly and you’ll see your beanie take shape.

Now we need to close the body of our beanie. To bring closer the edge of my beanie I used the clover stitch markers and then, I simply started sewing along.

Once you have done, just fold the lower part of your beanie for about 4cm to create this beautiful band edging.

Since the edging looked a bit unfinished, I also made a row of reverse single crochet all the way around to complete the look.

My beautiful long faux fur pom pom is from Cowling Country Crafts Etsy shop. I really liked this shop, it provides a great selection of fur pom poms in different sizes and different colors and shades.

Sandra the owner, has been very professional. I had my product delivered in only few days and I also appreciated the padded mailing envelope my pom pom came in. It showed care even if there was only a pom pom inside.

For my ‘snow white’ beanie, I chose the color ‘Autumn Mink’ , since I loved how the beautiful darker tips blended with the beige neutral color of the pom pom.

Looking for this kind of pom poms, my main question was about how to apply them. ‘Should I sew them or what?’, I kept asking to myself. Well, I was very surprised to find out they come with an automatic closure at their bottom, which makes the assembly easier than I thought.I really love the chunky look of my beanie. The soft rim makes it so comfortable to wear around the head, also the close pattern makes it super warm and cozy. I really think this is the warmest beanie I have ever made, perfect for the freezing winter days especially if you have to stay outside for long time.

I put it on for a walk through the Christmas market and had fun posing for some pics with all the lights and Christmas trees, enjoying the magical atmosphere of these weeks.

I hope you guys like this pattern too. Let me know if you are going to use it for Christmas gifts or for yourself. Let me know also if you are familiar with faux fur pom poms or if you use a different technique to make them. Meantime I wish you a happy crocheting time and see you to the next post…bye!!!!

Crochet mittens

Together with beanies and scarves, mittens are my favourite winter accessory. They look so cute, a glamorous alternative to gloves to protect my hands from getting super dry and scratchy, especially during the coldest and windiest days. This is why with some yarn I had left from my previous pumpkin cowl, I decided to crochet a pair of warm and cozy mittens.

The pattern I used is very easy and it works up really fast, since I was able to complete this project in a couple of evenings after work. This makes it perfect also for Christmas gifts or last-minute presents.

It is a pattern worked downwards, from the finger tips to the cuffs and the only stitches you need to know are the half double crochet (hdc) for the body of the mittens , double crochet (dc) and front post/back post double crochet (fpdc/bpdc) for the cuffs.

To make these mittens, I have used the shade 207 of Gomitolo200 yarn and my 5mm crochet hook.

At the beginning I had to deal a bit with establishing the initial number of stitches to make, so I developed a little trick that worked for me to find the perfect fitting for my mittens.

I started with a certain number of stitches worked into a magic circle and then I made two rounds of increases. If after these two rounds I was not able to cover easily the last four fingers of my hand, I came back and changed the initial number of stitches into the magic loop.

At the end here is the pattern I made up for my mittens , which fits an average range of hands sizes. If you have a smaller/bigger hand, simply reduce/increase the initial number of stitches  into the magic loop and you should find your perfect size.

Into a magic circle, let’s make 9 hdc

round 1 : ch2, 2hdc in each stitch around. Sl st into the first hdc. (18 sts)

round 2 : ch2, *1 hdc into the first stitch, 2 hdc into the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc (27 sts)

round 3-17 : ch2, 1 hdc into each stitch around. Sl st into the first hdc (27 sts)

round 18 : ch2, 1 hdc into the next 13 stitches. Ch7, skip the next 3 stitches and do hdc until the end of the round. Sl st into the first hdc.

round 19 : ch2, 1 hdc into the next 13 st, 7 hdc into the ch7 space, then hdc until the end of the round. Sl st into the first hdc.

round 20 : ch2, 1 hdc into each stitch around. Sl st into the first hdc.

round 21 : ch3, 1 dc into each stitch around. Sl st into the first dc.

round 22-27 : ch3, 1 fpdc into the stitch below. *1 bpdc into the next stitch, 1 fpdc into the next stitch*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the round. Sl st into the first stitch.

Fasten off your yarn.

Did we forget about the thumb? Of course not. To make it just, insert your hook in any stitch of the hole space you made before. Start making 16 hdc evenly spaced around this hole.

round 1-2: ch1, 1 hdc into each stitch around (16 sts)

round 3 : ch1, *6 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (14 sts)

round 4 : ch1, *5 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (12 sts)

round 5 : ch1, *4 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (10 sts)

round 6 : ch1, *3 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (8 sts)

round 7 : ch1, *2 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (6 sts)

Fasten off your yarn and close up the little hole that remains.

I am really proud of how my pair of mittens came out. I love their rounded shape, it gives them such a sweet and cozy look which makes them simply irresistible.

They also make such a great set with my pumpkin cowl and I am sure I’m gonna wear them together.

Look how beautifully the front post and back post double crochet stitches combine together to create a nice ribbed effect on the cuffs.

I can already see myself walking through the street this winter wearing my mittens with a hot cup of tea in my hands.

I really hope you guys like this pattern. Let me know if you too find mittens adorable and if you are going to use this pattern for yourself or for a Christmas present. Meanwhile I wish you a happy crocheting time from the bottom of my heart and see you to the next post. Byeee !!!!

Pumpkin crochet cowl

Few weeks ago I went to my usual yarn store looking for something warm both in colors and texture and I found this beautiful yarn that matches so well the shades of this time of the year. The red and yellow nuances are indeed the same you can see in the leaves falling down and the orange tints, don’t they make you think about the so popular Halloween pumpkins?

So, right on time for fall season, I was inspired to crochet a big and warm cowl to ward off these first chilly and windy days.

Since I love infinity scarves and the way they look once worn, I tried to recreate the same effect on my cowl. I am not a big fan of  ‘choker-style’ cowls, this is why I went for a loose fitting to let my cowl beautifully fall around my neckline in a soft and comfy way.

The yarn I used is the shade 207 of ‘Gomitolo 200’ (yarn ball 200) even if you will need less than 200 gr of yarn to end this project. You are also going to need a 5 mm crochet hook, a yarn needle and some stitch markers, very helpful during the final assembly step.

Let’s begin by making an initial number of chains multiple of 6. Keep in mind that this number will determine the loosiness of the cowl around your neckline. I chained 102.

The pattern I used is  a variation of the very easy and popular V-stitch and it is called ‘no space double crochet V-stitch’ pattern. You might know that usually a V-stitch is made by working 1dc, 1ch and 1 dc all in the same stitch. Well, in the ‘no space V stitch’ there is no chain between one dc and the other, because the V-stitch is worked in the space between the two double crochet of the row below.

row 1 : 2 dc in the 4th chain from the hook (this create the V-stitch). *Sk 1 chain and make 2 dc in the next chain*. Keep repeating from *to* until there are two chains left. At this point, skip the next chain and make 1 dc in the very last stitch.

row 2 – 38 : ch3 and turn your work. 2 dc in the space between the 2 dc (V-stitch) of the row below. Repeat all across the V-stitches below. Then 1dc in the last stitch.

At the end of row 38 you will have a long rectangle. Fold it in half along the longest side of it and sew the ends along the shortest sides. You may use stitch markers to help keep the two ends together.

I am crazy in love with my cowl. I adore it, it came out just the way I had it in my mind. I put it on for a relaxing walk through a beautiful, wild path only few minutes away from our home and I had so much fun when I noticed I was perfectly in tune with the nature background. Don’t you think the same?

I am sure I’ll use this pattern again, it’s so easy and quick that will be perfect to make Christmas presents. I am already thinking about using different shades of this yarn and I can’t wait to try it and show you the result. I hope you like this pattern too and till the next post I wish you every good and a happy crocheting time. Love you all !

Fringe scarf…

Last year you saw me post a picture of this beautiful Katia cotton cashmere thread, with the promise of a coming soon blog post about the project I was making with it.

Well, it turned out I need to study a little bit more for ‘that’ project, and in the end after several trials and frogs, I let my yarn rest for almost a year. Few weeks ago I took it back and decided to use it to make an accessory very useful in this time of the year, a light scarf perfect to wear during the breezy springy nights out.

To make this scarf I have used the shade n.56 of KATIA CONCEPT thread, which is a mix of 90% cotton and 10% cashmere perfect for spring/summer projects. Usually 100% cotton threads result in quite rigid and tight works, while on the contrary this is very soft , light and gentle on skin thanks to the cashmere presence and since I have used it I cannot resist to the temptation of caressing it and squezze my face in it!!!

But now let’s move to the pattern. I have used 5 balls of thread (250 gr) and my trusty summer friend, my 4.5mm hook. I started by chaining 33 and then I followed this nice pattern I found on the net.

The pattern is multiple of 3 and I would call it a rivisited V stitch pattern, since it is practically a V stitch where one side of the V is made of a puff stitch and the other side is a double crochet. I really enjoyed making it and I absolutely love the openwork pattern that came out, I find it very unique and something you don’t see often.  

Ch 33

row1 :  ch3 (it counts as the first dc), ch1, 1 puff stitch into the 5th chain from hook. *Skip the next two stitches and do 1 dc into the next one. Ch 1 and do 1 puff stitch into the same stitch below*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row. Dc into the very last stitch.

row 2 : ch3 (it counts as the first dc) and turn your work. Ch 1 and do 1 puff stitch into the dc stitch below. *Skip the next two stitches and do 1 dc into the next one (it should be the dc below), ch 1 and puff stitch into the same stitch below*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Dc into the top ch below which counted as the first dc.

Keep repeating row1-row2 until you reach the desired length for your scarf. I did it for a total of 155 rows.

At this time I wanted to customize a bit my scarf by attaching some fringes at the ends of it. I never tried it before and I was so happy to learn a new technique and apply it to my brand new scarf.

Start taking a square shape which will define the size of your fringe. I took a simple notebook and started wrapping my thread around it.

The times you wrap your thread will vary the size and the chunkiness of your fringe. Since my scarf is very light and it is for spring outfits, I thought big fringes just didn’t suit it, so I wrapped my thread 5 times. Then cut your strands and fold them in half to form a loop at one end.

Take your hook and insert it into the stitch you want to place your fringe in and draw the loop through that stitch.

Yarn over the loose ends of your yarn and pull everything out.

That’s it!! I am sure you are really going to have fun doing that. I found it very relaxing to do while watching a movie  !!!!

Now my scarf is ready to be carried around and taken out every time I am out with friends, tasting the first summer nights out and a fresh breeze catches us by surprise.

I really hope you like this pattern. I found it a nice alternative to infinity scarves, which are the only ones I have made since I am crocheting. Plus, I was really proud to have learned how to attach fringes to crochet projects. It's a very useful technique you can apply even for blankets, vests or bags! Let me know if you are going to try your hands at this project too! I love you all and see you to the next post..byeee!

Mummy, baby…& me scarf

Few months ago, I happened to know a nice coincidence that links my colleague to her daughter. They were born on the same day, obviously in different years. So while my colleague is happily enjoying her thirties, her daughter blew out her first candle. My colleague set a wonderful b-day party hoping to make that day unforgettable for her and her baby. I wanted to contribute in making their day special as well, so I thought to gift them with matching mummy and baby scarves.

mummyscarfbaby-scarfscarvesSince my colleague is a very sporty type, I wanted an easy to pair color and this blue jeans yarn from Rugby (colour n.14) was just the perfect match. I have used 3 and a half balls (350 grams) and my 8 mm crochet hook.

yarnsFor the toddler scarf, instead, I used some yarn left from my Valerie scarf I really love the creamy color of this yarn and the fact that is extremely soft , antiallergic and delicate on baby skin. For it I used less than a ball and my trusty 6 mm hook.

Here are the patterns I made up for these beautiful scarves. They are very simple, and considering that I ended them in less than a week working on them only in the evening after work, I may say they are really quick.

Mummy scarf

For this pattern we are going to need an even number of chains. I made a foundation of 150 chains

row 1: ch1, 1 hdc into the second ch from the hook, *ch1, skip the chain below , 1hdc into the next chain*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row.

row2-18 : ch1 and turn your work. *Ch 1, skip the stitch below and do 1hdc into the next ch 1 space*. Repeat from * to* until the end of the row. Sc into the very last stitch

Once you are happy with the fitting of your scarf, join the two ends of it and start sewing them. Now your scarf should be ready to be wrapped around your neck and keep you extra warm!!!

Baby scarf

Begin your project by making a foundation of 146 chains. It may seem a little weird the fatc that for both the mummy and the baby scarf, the number of initial chains is almost the same, but it’s only due to the fact that the yarn we use for the toddler scarf is thiner .

row 1: ch1, 1 hdc into the second ch from the hook, *ch1, skip the chain below , 1hdc into the next chain*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row.

row2-12 : ch1 and turn your work. *Ch 1, skip the stitch below and do 1hdc into the next ch 1 space*. Repeat from * to* until the end of the row. Sc into the very last stitch

My colleague really liked their matching gift and her baby too, since she kept moving her head toward, proudly taking all the compliments of the party guests.

It’s been a long time since I haven’t made something for myself as well. For years my knit like infinity scarf it’s been my daily winter accessory but I really wanted a renewing. This is why I decided to crochet the ‘mummy scarf’ even for myself using this beautiful dusty rose yarn from Rugby.

my-scarfI really love the color of this yarn and was surprised to see how versatile it is. It matches perfectly my brownish coat and I think it will look adorable even with a giant, oversized neutral cardigan for more springy outfits.

me2mevalerioI am so proud of how these gifts turned out and the happiness on my colleague’s face when she received them was just priceless. She really liked the idea of her and her baby walking around , wearing the same accessory. For sure now they’ll have even something more to share together.

Anyway talking about sharing and coincidences, I have a similar story too since I share my birth date with my grandpa. Do you have similar stories too and do you think there’s some kind of explanation between them? I am really curious to know your experiences and opinions, in the meantime I wish you a happy crocheting time and keep tuned since sooner I’ll be sharing my first spring project!!!! Love you all byeeee

‘Valerie’ infinity scarf

I decided to name this scarf after a person who was very close to me during the most difficult time of my life. Her name is Valeria and she is the daughter of my mum’s best friend. Like me, she is an engineer and a strong woman who made her way through all the challenges and difficulties that life placed before her. One day, we were having a tea at my house and, talking about fashion and other ‘feminine topics’, she told me a warm white scarf was just what was missing into her wardrobe. That immediately rang a bell into my head, since I couldn’t think to any better way to show her all my gratitude for all her support and encouragement, than just making her wish come true.

scarfi

seed-stitch-scarfTo make this scarf, I used 3 balls of the soft Relax yarn in a candid white color and my trusty 6 mm crochet hook. It always get my smile the fact that this yarn is named ‘Relax’, since it is just as Latin people would say ‘ in nomen omen’ , a name that just explains itself.

relax-yarnI wanted to make this scarf very unique, using a pattern I never tried before and that looked light and elegant. Well, looking here and there, I found out it is possible to achieve the beautiful knitted seed stitch look even with crochet and so I went straight for it.

seed-stitchI studied a bit this stitch and after some trials, I understood that the better way to work with it is in rows back and forth. Generally you have seen me work infinity scarves in round , (Infinity scarf , knit-like infinity scarf, infinity bubble scarf) , but this time the only way to make your scarf look exactly the same on both sides is to work it in rows.

To start off , you will need an odd number of chain stitches, then  I chained 171.

row 1:  *1 sc into the second ch from the hook, 1 dc into the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * all the way along.

seed-st-tutorial1row 226: ch1 and turn your work. *Skip one stitch and work 1 sc and 1 dc into the next same stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row.

seed-st-tutorial2seed-st-tutorial-3Once you have completed, join the two ends of your scarf and start sewing them to form a loop.loop-scarfinfinity-scarfThis scarf will always hold a special place into my heart, since it became for me a symbol of strength, courage and determination. This is the reason why I want to dedicate it to all the ‘super-women’ out there, all the women worlwide who everyday face challenges, but for whom giving up is not an option. To the women who always show their best side even if life shows them its worst. To the women who make mistakes and try to learn from them and improve themselves. To moms, who at the same time are wives and have succesfull career, but they always find the time to lovely kiss their children. A special thought is for all the people who suffered a loss, and always look at the sky with a smile and continue to live their life with enthusiasm, because they know this is how their beloved ones want to see them. This scarf is for all of us heart
