Don't frog that mile long scarf!

Okay, so you started crocheting a scarf while watching tv and the next thing you know that scarf seems to be a mile long. What to do? Simple!

Fold up the ends enough to form a pocket and sew the sides closed. Wa-lah! You got a scarf with pockets! Pretty nifty thing to have. Tuck your hands in the pockets to give them added warmth on those blustery days outside.

OR! If that isn't quite the answer you were looking for--fold the scarf in half and sew up one side 12 inches in the middle of the scarf. That will give you a nice hood. Now you're wishing you had the pockets too aren't you?

If that don't keep you busy for the next week, I'll see what else I can come up with.

I've done both of those, and they are always a hit! For the hood, if you edge it in the furry yarn, it gives it a really neat effect.

hey I love that idea! Could wear it jogging! I might look funny, but would have warm hands and neck!
