I've set up a mirror of this page at http://www.fmfcorp.com/familyspot/scarf-liner.html. It seems that there have been some link problems at this site. If you have any problems with this page, try the other site instead.
This has been a revelation! Those of us with fine hair will all recognize the problem of scarf slippage. How on earth can we get them to stay put? Well, Shoshie has an answer that has worked like a dream for me.
"I make crocheted scarf liner that is big enough to fit over my head (sort of like the size of a bukhara kippah or one that is usually worn by kids at night when they sleep). This helps prevent any slipping of my scarf or snood, plus I don't have to worry about trying to tie my scarf tighter and making me feel like I'm cutting off the blood flow to my brain! LOL
It's quite easy. Use crochet cotton (white or cream works well because then there is not a distinct colour peeping through your scarf should the light shine on it). I use about a 1.75 crochet hook." (ProudMommy's note: I used size 10 crochet thread, with a steel crochet hook, American size 8 (1.5 mm). I think 1.75 would be between a 6 and a 7, but 8 is what I had handy!)
Working in rounds
"This is all again, trial and error according to your head size. My best advice to you is keep trying it on as you work on it.
Have fun working on it - you'll find that it doesn't take but a few hours to whip it up once you have done one that fits well. I also like making one that is a little longer and it making crochet lace around the edge of the front and it makes a nice front piece for my forehead that peeks out from underneath my scarf. This is excellent too in case your scarf slips back, it really looks attractive and since it is done in a tight stitch, no one can see your hair anyway."
Like the page? I love compliments! Leave me a line or two in my
