Pocket Scarf in Progress

I was able to complete several hats last week and now I'm working on a pocket scarf for a friend who is also a freelance writer.  Like me, she hates to wear a coat but needs something around her neck on chilly mornings and said she'd like something to keep her hands warm too.

This shot doesn't show the true colors, but I think it's going to be pretty when finished.  I'm using Red Heart's Urban Camo variegated yarn and the denim shades in it should go great with jeans.

I've never done a scarf that's also a hand-warmer, but from what I've seen, you just make it long enough to turn up both edges and stitch on two sides.  Seems easy enough, so we'll see how this turns out.

She's promised to model it for  me once she receives it, so I'll have better pics to share later.

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

Make sure to click 'You are next' below to add your link here so my readers can follow it to your blog post. Note 

Several of you are signing up at the bottom but you’re not putting the WIP Wednesday link on your own blog. If you don’t, your readers won’t be led back here to see what others are doing and what WIP Wednesday is all about. It’s not hard, just copy the code beneath the photo above and paste it into your blog post. If you’re having trouble, please let me know and I’ll try to walk you through it.

This is going to look great with almost everything in my closet -- it's going to be a Godsend when I visit my mom's farm during the winter months.

I made one of these years ago! But I like your stitch much more. =)

Really really nice :) That would, indeed, look great with a pair of jeans!

I like this idea a lot. Just might have to give it a try myself!

a novel idea to be able to warm your hands in your scarf....I like it.
I did my post this morning but just now getting it linked up.

Love the color, a pocket scarf has been on my to do list now for some time. My understanding is like yours, and it always seems like such a good idea, somehow I just haven't gotten around to doing it.
