My husband has recently informed me that he needs a scarf. I managed to find an old one that I had basically never used in my closet but we both like the idea of me making him a scarf.
Well one of the complaints he has about the one he’s “borrowing” is that it’s too thin. He has to double it up.
I bought a skein of “Lion Wool.” I had only made one scarf previously and that was for a child so I am not really sure how much yarn I’ll need. I just attempted to make one for myself and used a whole skein of “Bernat Black Lite” and it is reeaaally short. But soft and pretty!!
Basically, I was thinking that a felted scarf would probably fit the thick/sturdy need. But, i don’t know what stitch. Should I stockinette, garter, seed? He’s liked the ribbed things that I’ve done (an experiment which ended up being WAY too little yarn to really do anything with, and then the Black Lite scarf I made today) but I told him if I felted it, probably the “pattern” wouldn’t show up.
I can buy some more yarn if necessary, but I was hoping to just be able to use what I have. I just need to know what the thickest/sturdiest thing I could do for this scarf. he has to walk around in the cold a lot and he’s sick as it is. So I’m hoping to do this quickly!
Thanks so much!!
