Every chilly evening is made better with the perfect big scarf, shawl, or blanket. When crocheting a blanket, look for worsted- and DK- weight yarns that are machine washable. Most people aren’t interested in hand washing a blanket! Scarves and shawls can be made with more delicate fibers if you wish – typically, you won’t wear a scarf nearly as hard as a throw blanket on your couch! Big projects like these take time, but they’re so worth it!
