Dalgali Scarf

dalgali_1

The Dalgali Scarf by Angela Gardner is fully reversible with a great springy texture. We used just one 200 gram ball of Marble Chunky by James C. Brett. This yarn is soft, colorful, and because it is 100% acrylic it can be machine washed. The pattern is fun and quick so it would be the perfect project for last minute gifts.

After the first few repeats you will have the pattern memorized. The scarf is worked on the diagnal adding an interest factor to the final product. The pattern can also be worked with 2 yarns alternating as you go for a larger size. I think one ball of marble made a great size scarf, ours measures 84″ long!

Through their efforts, the Museum has distributed 50,000 scarves to approximately 1,000 veterans’ centers, hospitals, and service organizations across the country. You may use any yarn, but please keep the colors gender neutral. Here is a link to the Knit Your Bit website just click here to find patterns and more information about the project!
