Scarf project for 3/2 Battalion

This is not a charity project per se. There are 1100+ Marines in my son's battalion that are being deployed this fall and we parents are trying to get scarves made for each of them.

We use Lion Brand Homespun Beige along with a Bernat Camo yarn (Desert Sand). Our pattern is simple. Use a strand of yarn and cast on 18 (it's a lucky number signifying "life") and double crochet until you have 40-42 inches. No fringe, of course.

If we could get others to join us we will meet our goal and it would show these fine young men and women that the public supports them.

Thank you for your consideration.
