Craft the ‘Bricks Are Heavy’ Scarf: A Nod to Rock and Warmth

Rock Roots and Warm Wraps

During my teenage years, the empowering anthems of riot-grrrl and other female rock bands like L7, Bikini Kill, and Babes in Toyland echoed in my ears. This crafted chunky scarf stands as a tribute to that era and the powerful women who defined it. Named after my favourite L7 album, ‘Bricks are Heavy’, this scarf embodies both the weight and warmth of their music and my memories.

Effortless Creation, Cozy Results

Constructed with ease and efficiency, this chunky scarf is your shield against the biting cold. The robust design comes to life quickly with a 10mm hook, offering immediate satisfaction and lasting comfort. Though I used Katia Artico, feel free to choose any chunky yarn, allowing your personal touch to shine in this functional, fashionable piece.

Embrace the Simplicity

With a width of 28cm and a length slightly over 2 meters, the ‘Bricks Are Heavy’ scarf boasts a simple, one-colour design. This choice not only minimizes the hassle of weaving in ends but also echoes the timeless principle: less is indeed more. Relish in the simplicity as you craft, and bask in the warmth as you wrap yourself in the finished masterpiece.
