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.

America 4R Marines Desert Sand Camo scarves. This is what the scarves should all look like when completed.



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.

Marine Scarves

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.

Marine Scarf Pattern

The Scarf is made holding 2 strand together. The scarf needs  to be 7 inches wide and about 42 inches long when finished.

As Quoted by the designer; “The scarf is worked with either  Rococo + Desert Sand or Caron Lace + Desert  Sand”

Crochet Pattern
Use Size J or K Crochet Hook ch 18 (or however many you need to make 7 inches wide) Work in DC until about 42 inches long.                         NO FRINGE
