I crocheted this scarf with two strands of an already bulky yarn, so the thickness is about 3/4 inch. Using two strands not only makes for a bulkier and warmer scarf, it also gives the scarf a wonderful cushiony feel. Since Charisma yarn is airy, the scarf is still lightweight and pliable.

This size scarf offers a simple, very easy-to-wear style of infinity scarf. It's made to loop only once or twice, falling in place easily and draping beautifully. (May be possible to loop three times on smaller sizes for a snug neck warmer.)
As with this scarf, I generally make my infinity scarves a traditional scarf width (infinity scarves can be as wide as 10 - 12 inches). The wider scarves may be fashionably dramatic, but the narrower ones are easier to manage and more flattering. This one can be put on quickly and easily—it falls into place without a lot of adjustment. For someone my size, 5’ 4” and small-boned, the larger scarves are overwhelming while the infinity scarves that are a more traditional scarf width look and feel perfect.
This scarf is crocheted “in the round” to eliminate any seams. With infinity scarves, the very small area (1/2 inch wide) where I turn to start new rows will always look a little different from the rest of the scarf, but this can always be worn behind the neck, if desired. With this particular scarf, this area blends in very well. (:
An infinity scarf provides versatility in both fashion and function. When worn closely to the neck, this yarn provides warmth, and the more loops around the neck, the warmer it will become. Even though the scarf is narrow, I would still consider it a true winter scarf. Simply put, the amount of warmth & insulation provided depends purely on the way it’s worn.
An Infinity scarf can be worn in a variety of ways…
--Can be worn at full length as one large loop. This is good for warmer weather or when used purely as a fashion accessory.
--Can be worn as two loops at different lengths for a double scarf look. Pull scarf over head, twist in front into a figure 8, pull loop you’ve just created over your head. Adjust to desired lengths.
--Can be worn as two loops at equal lengths to create a cowl neck.
--You can also keep the two layers together, wrap them both around your neck, inserting one end into the loop at the other end of the scarf and create a double thickness neck warmer that's great for wearing under coats and jackets with an open v-neck.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Can be washed in cool on a delicate cycle and dried in dryer on low setting. However, I recommend either hand-washing in cold water and laying flat to dry, or washing on a gentle cycle in a lingerie bag and drying only a few minutes in the dryer. The gentler washing & drying prevents the yarn from frizzing over time. Avoid washing with heavier garments that cause friction. If using washing machine, avoid washing with items that have zippers, buttons, etc that may snag the yarn loops and pull on them or make the yarn fray.
Note: All yarns come with some degree of "factory residue" that makes the yarn feel a little stiff. This will disappear with normal handling and/or the first wash, bringing out the true softness of the yarn.
I keep shipping to a minimum and offer First Class Parcel as the best value for price & speed. For Ready to Ship items, I'll ship the same or next day. For items made to order, I'll ship as soon as I have the scarf finished (within the timeframe stated in the listing title). I use the Paypal/USPS integrated shipping system whenever possible, so you will be provided with a delivery confirmation number by email from Paypal. Most First Class packages only take two days to be delivered, sometimes three to four days for more remote areas of the country. Sorry, residents of Montana! (:
I always combine shipping for multiple orders. I most commonly use USPS First Class International for shipping outside of the US. USPS does not offer delivery confirmation or tracking for First Class International. First Class International may take a longer time to arrive, but it's much more affordable than Priority International (which usually runs $20 or more for a few ounces). Delivery time for international packages is usually 5 to 15 business days. Customs, bad weather, or national holidays can sometimes slow down a package with the occasional shipment taking around 30 days to arrive. This only happens to about 5% of my international shipments. (:
International Buyers Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.
I only accept Paypal. If you don't have a Paypal account, you will still be able to pay with a credit or debit card through Paypal. You can also pay from your bank account using an E-check (also through the Paypal system), but I won't be able to ship until the check has cleared, Paypal says it's okay to ship and allows me to print out a label.
For now, I am not accepting returns, but am completely open to resolving any problems that may occur. I feel the best strategy is to head off any problems before they even happen. If you have any questions whatsoever about any items I am selling, please ask.
Thanks for looking! (:
