SCARVES FOR TROOPS
KNITTING AND CROCHETING INSTRUCTIONS
Any soft, worsted or bulky weight (100 grams/3.5 ounces) wool yarn (lamb’s wool, alpaca, cashmere or combinations of these are acceptable).
Only 100% soft wool yarn will be accepted, because our Armed Forces are not allowed to wear synthetic fibers outside the wire.
1. Inherently non-flammable, so it won’t melt against the skin in the event of an accident, and
2. It is a good insulator even when wet.
Colors: ONLY black, charcoal, brown, tan, or combinations of these colors.
Finished dimensions: approx. 12 in. x 42 in. No fringe, scallops, or holes big enough to put your little finger through, just plain, as these need to be “unisex”.
Note: Any stitch EXCEPT stockinette stitch if knitting as it curls, so please do not use it.
Cast off. Weave in ends.
