project "overwhelm patty with scarves"
(jorieJC2 asked me to post about this here, to explain the scarves i send to my mom, so i'm reposting this blog entry from my blog to this group.)
so, as most of you know, i’m a big fan of knitting up fun fur scarves. my mom is, too. we make them for Alexian Brothers Medical Center, to be handed out to the women undergoing chemo for breast cancer. in an effort to overwhelm my mother (and the hospital) with the goodness of knitter’s hearts, i’m posting the basic pattern we use here, and asking people to knit some up and mail them out to her (address at the bottom of the page). i’ll also be collecting them at the Lime and Violet slumberparty this june (or whenever it’s rescheduled for)! Once a month or so i mail them out to her, so yours will go with that next package, warming and loving on someone in a rough spot.
what you need: two balls of fun fur (or comperable yarn); size 11-13 needles
cast on 15-22 (any less will make the scarf a little to thin, while any more will mean you’ll be knitting for-EVER.)
simply knit every row until you’ve used up the two balls of yarn. the more stitches you cast on, the shorter the scarf will be, but that really doesn’t matter a whole lot because women are all sizes!
and that’s all it is folks! a super simple way to love on others! feel free to shoot me pics of your scarves as/after they’re made, and i’ll add them here for everyone else to see (i may or may not take pics of the ones that don’t already have pics, so if you want to show yours off, best to just take the pic yourself).
