Chunky Red Scarf to Warm the Homeless

Finished another scarf about 6.5 feet long and 6 inches wide. This one is knitted with Lion Brand Chunky, knit up pretty fast since it's so chunky on size 15 needles. Think this is large enough for men, but looks more ladylike to me? What do you think? I love how thick and plush it feels. Nice tight stitches so it should be super warm.

Though I spend the bulk of my time working on afghans from your donated squares, I do a fair amount of scarves, when I need something that travels, something I can work on at work during lunch etc. I do often edge squares in those settings; but find I really need to be home to assemble them, particularly if I'm working on one where the squares are lots of different sizes, soooooooo scarves are the first thing that comes to mind.

  1. Love the scarf Sandy. I'm gonna have to try that chunky yarn!

  2. I think it would be ok for man or woman, either one.

  3. Thanks Anne Marie, I just couldn't decide. It's dark red, not bright and has the black in it. So, I made it large enough for a guy, then wondered. Appreciate the visit and comment.

  4. Love the scarf. I think a man would like it. But it will keep someone nice and warm!

  5. I see my name in there...hahaha...nice scarf Sandy!

  6. I LOVE this scarf, Sandy. I think it could be for a man or woman, also. Especially since the red is dark. It just looks so nice and cozy too. Great job!

  7. Oooooh! This looks so warm! My first impression was female; but, it may look more manly in person. I'm sure the scarf will be happy with whomever chooses it!

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
