So I made 12 of these linen/lace infinity scarves this year! That made me pretty happy to get that yardage out of the stash. The brown and teal linen blends were purchased specifically for this project, but the black linen blend was originally intended for dress pants for the Things - obviously that didn't happen so far, and I decided this was a more pressing need. I have to say that the turqhoise and black scarves are more drapey - I think that those fabrics had a lighter hand than the brown, teal, navy, and purple. I can't remember if they were a different percentage blend now. But I think they all turned out very nicely.
With the purple, turquoise, and navy scarves, I made them a little wider just because that was the width left over from the baby slings. With the others, I was able to get 3 out of each length by making them a bit more narrow. Still should look good, but allowed me to get more out of the same fabrics.
I like the way these turned out, and I hope that the recipients enjoy wearing them!
