Scarf Types & Styles

Scarves come in all styles, shapes, sizes and colours.  I've noticed recently that various styles are called different names in different parts of the world. When searching online, this can be pretty confusing!

So to avoid confusion, below is a list of the styles we have available in our Maxies Knitwear shop.



Wrap Scarf


Wrap Scarf
This is the traditional style of scarf ... long or short but this scarf can be wrapped around the neck and worn as tight or loose as desired. 



Infinity Scarf




Infinity Scarf
Also known as a Circle Scarf; Infinity Scarves have the ends sewn together, and can be looped around the neck once or twice.  






Cowl

Cowl
Similar to a Circle Scarf, except a Cowl cannot be looped. Some styles sit comfortably over the neck and hang loose (or tight) in front. Others are held closed with buttons, ribbons or a knitted cord.





Ruffle Scarf


Ruffle Scarf
Ruffle Scarves are made with a special type of ribbon yarn. The yarn is usually polyester or mesh -  these can be worn in a variety of ways and add a bit of flair to any outfit.







Snood
Similar to a Cowl; a Snood is circle in appearance but is large enough to wear over the head while sitting comfortably around the neck at the same time.  





Mesh Scarf





Arm Knit Scarves
These lovely scarves are made just as they are named ... arms are used as needles.  Made with wool, polyester or mesh yarns; these Scarves are stylish and lovely to wear.  




Scoodies




Scoodies
Scoodies are hooded Scarves.  Fantastic for freezing cold winters; these Scarves are hats with scarves that wrap comfortably under the chin.
