View Full Version : How much MMMalabrigo for a scarf?

Being a Malabrigo virgin, I am trying to figure out if I will need one or two hanks for a decent width and length scarf for me!! Anyone? :??

According to the MMMM website a shop about 30-45 min from me carries it and I am thinking of making a detour while running errands tomorrow... :teehee:

2 would be good - 1 will make a nice scarf, but it would be thin and not too long. CateKnit's made one with 2 hanks that looks great. You can see it here (http://doublepointed.net/).

I made a scarf with only 1 skein using the scrunchable scarf pattern, and I think it turned out to be a pretty good size. I actually just bought another skein in a different colorway and am thinking about making the same thing again!

I guess it depends on how long and wide you want your scarf! I knit this scarf (http://whimsicalknitting.blogspot.com/2006/05/touch-of-whimsy-scarf-pattern.html) with one hank and it is 5" wide and 5ft long, my personal preference is for a longer scarf, so this one goes to my sister for Christmas cause she likes this length.

Awww, Sara linked to me! :heart: :heart:
That one is exactly all of two hanks and is somewhere around nine feet long. I love long scarves. :cheering:
