If you’re interested, please hold onto any completed scarves until mid November. The scarves this year will be going to battalions deployed in Afghanistan, hopefully along with the Christmas stockings in early December. However, we need to raise a bundle to get what we need accomplished for the Christmas stockings this year.
FOR EASY DISTRIBUTION PLEASE BAG EACH SCARF INDIVIDUALLY IN A 1 GALLON ZIPLOCK BAG WITH MOST OF THE AIR RELEASED.
All details on the stitch and yarns that must be used are on Yarn and Thread by Lisa. UPDATE LISA NO LONGER IS IN THE YARN BUSINESS- SHE WILL POSTING WHO TOOK OVER THAT END OF HER BUSINESS. If you want to get a group together you can buy in BULK. There is a $150.00 order minimum but there is no quantity minimum. You can order in the quantity needed for each item and receive an additional 15% off the price. Remember, Lisa’s prices are already at least 20 – 25% off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.
The patterns call for 2 strands to be worked together. The ideal yarns are the Rococo and the Desert Sand. But for anyone that has trouble knitting or crocheting with a textured yarn like the Rococo may use the Lace Caron and the Desert Sand. Please DO NOT use all three yarns together.
See below for the Knit and Crochet Pattern used for the Marine Scarves.
