Hand Warming Scarf Crochet

Here is a quick and easy pattern for a scarf that keeps your hands warm. A great gift idea for people who love the great outdoors. Would also be ideal for anyone who feels the cold in their hands. I think a lot of charities that assist the older people would also be able to make good use of these scarves.

I have a suggestion. Just change the size and guage of the stitches - make it a lot longer and then fold up the ends so you only have to sew it on two sides with the bottom being a fold.

That is exactly what I was thinking, I was admiring a friend's hand Warner scarf at school just this afternoon and commented that it wild be ready to crochet by just turning the ends over and stitching up the sides! You wouldn't get contrasting pockets though, unless you changed your yarn colour for a certain number of stitches at each end, as this scarf is worked across from the long edge...

This just looks so way cool1 I was thinking like another and just bringing up the ends with the bottom being a fold. I am thinking this would be a great teens with phones, Ipads, etc. Thanks this is awesome
