I spent over a year making strips for a feather fan afghan for my new couch. Between a new puppy and a teenage boy sleeping on the couch, I don't want to sew the strips together for an afghan. The strips might make a long cardigan but I don't know how I'd make that happen. Ideas?? Help??? Words of wisdom????? Thanks

Not sure how to turn them into a cardigan.

I can see scarfs or shawls being pretty easy to do.

How wide and long are they?

5" wide, 68" long

I like the shawl idea. Could you elaborate on how?

One would make a great scarf. But for a shawl you'd sew about 4 or 5 together the long way.

Yes It would be cool as a scarf and depending on how many strips you have...a matching shawl ....

How about just crochet the strips together?
