When broke and trying to think of a gift to give to boys, life becomes somewhat difficult. I mean girls you can make a doll or something for, but the boys in our family? Yeah, I can't build a remote control car or something, so the best I could really do was to just make the nephews some scarves if I couldn't find them cool toys at the used stores or on clearance at the local stores.
So, this scarf I designed for my nephew who loves commando type of play. I mixed a solid tan yarn with a green variegated yarn to make a camo look (I hope), to the scarf. Since I doubled up on my yarn (to mix the colors for one and to make it nice and thick for two), it actually went pretty fast. Total Time to Make Project: Five hours. I knit pretty fast anymore. Total Cost to Make Project: I had both the yarns in my overflowing yarn basket, so it cost me nothing out of pocket to make the project.
