EDIT: I am allowing Newbies with well filled out profiles to join this swap ONLY so long as you write me a message of intent (show me you care and aren't going to flake) or have a well-rated friend on the site who is willing to message me on your behalf to vouch for you. Any newbies who join and have NOT contacted me will be removed from the swap before it starts. Ok?
This swap is to make your partner a fairly simple scarf within the month-long time frame, using primarily items from your stash! The scarf should appeal to your partner's preferences which will be left below.
The scarves should be wearable and handwashable but can be knit, sewn/quilted or crocheted. They should be fairly simple and not anything you would have trouble completing in a month or preferably less. You can use multiple yarns or fabrics, but if you are knitting or crocheting use large needles and a simple stitch, if you are sewing or quilting use large patchwork pieces, strips, or even just one or two simple pieces put together. Make the scarf something you are proud of and would be happy to receive yourself. Though it can be fairly simple do not leave loose threads or yarn ends not woven in...simple, but of decently good quality.
Lets try to not be too picky and make it easy on our swap partners! Nonetheless, please cut and paste the following preferences from the examples below and enter your own preferences to give your partners a better idea of what you might want:
Favorite solo color: Puce
Fave two color combo: Grey and Neon Orange
Fave color schemes/families/combos: Browns, Cool Pastels, Winter tones
Least favorite color(s): Banana yellow, fiery color combos
Fiber Allergies/pet peeves: Lacy frills on crochet, acrylic, tassels
Wide/Skinny and Short/Long preferences:Wide and medium-short
Special Requests: olive green and red checkerboard pattern (PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT YOUR PARTNER TO GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO FULFILL THE SPECIAL REQUESTS)
By the end of the sign up date you MUST post your preference list in the comments below or you will be removed from the swap. Once partners have been assigned please find your partners below and try to make something based on a combination of their preferences, i.e. if they say no wool, maybe make them a crocheted acrylic scarf.
The minimum requirements to receive a 5 is to craft a simple but well-constructed scarf with at least one of your partner's favorite colors (or as close as you can get to it) without using any of the fibers they are allergic to/pet peeves. Let's be lenient on our partners though, since this should be a simple and cheap swap, so long as they send you a scarf that gets close to your requests then that should be good. Keep it simple! You are welcome to put a bit extra embellishment onto the scarf but it is certainly not required (patches, appliques, pom poms or tassels come to mind). Just make your partner a nice scarf!
