In Flanders Field

The gorgeous scarf was created by up-cycling a 100% cashmere sweater. The scarf was felted and embellished with organza poppies and glass black beads. I also needle felted the poppy stems from 100% wool. The scarf measures 42-inches long by 4-1/2 inches wide. You can purchase the scarf from WryKnot on Etsy.

I named this scarf in honor of my grandfather Simon who served in World War I and and in honor of all veterans. Below is the poem that the scarf name came from:

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
— Lt.-Col. John McCrae (1872 – 1918)
