Each year, I knit things to give to my family members as Christmas gifts, and I like to try to fit something in to give to a charity. This year, I found the Red Scarf Program, which is part of Foster Care to Success. The organization helps college students to feel loved and warm on Valentine's Day each year by sending a red scarf to each student that has been in foster care.
Here's what I came up with:
A squishy, soft infinity scarf!
I knit in a basic basketweave pattern, using big needles to allow the mohair to stay lofty. It didn't take long to finish because of the bigger needles!
To finish the scarf, I seamed the finished edges together, creating an infinity scarf. It will be so cozy - worn once around the neck, or twisted double for extra warmth. The college student bonus is that both of these yarns are machine washable, and therefore, late-night (or early morning) coffee-run friendly.
