We have made two types of scarves in the past. One is just a straight sized scarf which is the same width all the way down the length. We have also started making hooded scarves. These have a wider middle section that we close up to form a hood. Also, these types of scarves generally have longer ends so that you can wrap them around your neck and flip over to your back.
We use Red Heart Medium Weight 100% Acrylic yarn, Caron Simply Soft 100% Acrylic Yarn and we can use Red Heart Creme de la Creme 100% Cotton Yarn if you prefer. All of these yarns are machine washable, dryable and hypoallergenic. All crocheted items need to be washed in cold water only. Acrylic yarn is kind of stretchy where cotton yarn doesn’t have as much give. The Caron Simply soft yarn is lightweight, delicate looking and would look great for a night on the town. The Red Heart Medium Weight is thicker and is great for tramping around outdoors. Since we haven’t made any scarves using the cotton yarn yet we cannot say how they will turn out. Below are the color charts for each of the yarn types.
Average Lengths of Most Scarves In Inches
3-5 years – 36 inches
5-7 years – 44 inches
8-10 years – 50 inches
Preteen – 57 inches
Small Woman – 64 inches
Medium Woman – 68 inches
Large Woman – 69 inches
Small Man – 67 inches
Medium Man – 70 inches
Large Man – 75 inches
Widths of Scarves can be anywhere from 3 to 8 inches wide. We can create one to your specifications in both length and width, add fringes to the ends, make the ends into fancy points or make a hood in the center. We can also make it with one, two or three different colors. The colors can be interchanged vertically or horizontally. Although just two colors are best unless you choose a variegated yarn then a matching solid color would be great as a highlight.
