Let’s face it, a scarf is a very stylish piece of clothing, isn’t it? Whether it’s a common scarf, a crochet scarf, a pashmina scarf, it doesn’t matter, when we see one soon our imagination is transported to the icy European countries where it is very common to use this type of piece, which not only serves to decorate the lap, to be an item to draw attention, but to really warm up, depending on the material the scarf is made of.
For example, the crochet scarf is not the most suitable for very cold days, because it is not the version that warms you the most. This, by the way, is one of the characteristics that distinguishes it from the knitting model, which many people confuse thinking they are the same thing, but they are not, the knitting version has thicker threads and warms up more. The fact that the crochet scarf is not as warm as other models may explain why it is so successful in Brazil, which even in winter doesn’t even come close to the cold of countries that have to deal with snow. Considering that there is no, or no longer exists, the culture of wearing a hat to protect oneself from the coldest temperatures, the crochet scarf must have occupied this space.
And as pointed out at the beginning, it is a very stylish piece, linked to elements of glamour and sophistication, it was established in Europe, used since the Roman Empire, which certainly contributed to its popularization in Brazilian lands. And it’s not only with knitting that people confuse the crochet scarf, people also confuse it with scarves and handkerchiefs. They are usually associated as if they were the same product, but they are not. Scarves are more appropriate for cold weather because they are larger and bulkier, unlike scarves and scarves that are smaller. And what does scarf mean? Scarf comes from the French “casher” and means “to hide”, while “col” means “lap”. Which makes perfect sense, to hide the lap, the bust, because it is a larger and bulkier piece.
