No scarves were harmed in the making of this blanket.
This is Linda. And her blanket that I made for her when I was pregnant with her. (This is why it’s blue and pink. Figured I’d hit the right one.)
I finally wrote a pattern for it today. I don’t make many baby blankets. Partly because it takes so long & you never feel like you’re getting anywhere. This blanket helps with that a little bit. It also helps with another of my banes: hot projects in the summer. When you’re working on this, you’re not holding anything larger than a scarf (thus the name) until it’s time to sew it all together, and that only takes a little bit of time.
This is so incredibly easy I almost feel guilty for calling it a pattern. I would feel guilty, but for the fact that it’s been so damned long since I posted a pattern. I do think it’s a good one if you’ve never made a somewhat large project before. My dislike of scarves is in no small part because I find them crippling–people tend to be afraid to move beyond them. I am constantly telling newbies asking for a good Step Two project that they can pretty much sew together a butt ton of scarves and make a blanket.
This serves as proof it’s not as ugly a suggestion as you might think.
