Recipe Notes

NOTE: A good rule of thumb for scarf lengths is to make it as long as the recipient is tall. However, 40ish inches for an adult is plenty unless you live in an extremely cold climate where it needs to be wrapped several times around!

Once you're done, hand-wash the scarf in warm water with gentle soap like this one, and lay it straight and flat to dry (I place mine on a few towels laid across the kitchen table).
