For an experienced knitter or crocheter, it's possible to make a complete scarf during one of our meetings. It's done with chunky/bulky/super bulky yarn (look for the 5 or 6 weight symbol) by knitting with size US35 or US50 needles or by crocheting with any of the crochet hooks size N through S. We've been using Red Heart Boutique Sassy in a variety of colors and types (metallic, sequins, etc.), of which, I have a huge supply. While our main goal is to make the kind of scarves one could wear on a job interview, with the onset of winter, we are also making warm and colorful scarves for the kids at SafeHaven.
When we donate our handcrafted scarves, we want the recipients at SafeHaven to know that the scarves were made especially for them, so we deliver them in gift bags with special tags. We also want to provide lots of variety in the scarves we make, so if you have an idea, we want to hear it!
