I know this sounds strange, but I am in a group that knits or crochets scarves for women in battered women's shelters. I was thinking that if I made long strips of various fabrics of all the same weight and with the sides sewn shut over a sort of light batting, I could then braid them into a beautiful multicolored scarf for the women in the shelter. I haven't tried it yet. Has anyone done something like this? How did it work out? Suggestions?
