    Handknitted scarfs-IMG

    Advertisements
    I've tried this in the past and really got no where. I can't work and really need a way to make extra money so I'm going to try this again. I make scarfs and enjoy doing it. The scarfs are 10$ a piece including shipping.

    Here is one of my favorites. It was knitted for my husband. I'm pretty sure I used Red Hearts Sport Camouflage but will double check.


    Here's another I knitted for a friends birthday. I used Red Heart Super Saver Shaded Dusk


    And here is a baby blanket I knitted for my daughter just to give you another example of my work. I used Red Heart Super Saver Candy Print.



    I can do the above in any of the colors off of here: http://www.redheart.com/default.aspx...75&yarnid=e300

    I prefer to work in Red Heart as it is good quality and cheap I also prefer the colors of their sport and super saver lines. Feel free to PM or post with questions as well as requests.

    OR THESE COLORS: http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Shine..._D5420140.html
    IN THIS PATTERN!

    Those are cute!

    You might have more luck using better quality yarn, Knitpicks has wool and alpaca for $1.99.
    A lot of people don't care for acrylics, and try Etsy like Sally said.

    Good luck!

    I'm allergic to wool

    And I don't think my stuff is good enough for etsy that's why I only sell em for 10$
