Question by : Knitters: I’m making a 11-Gauge Super Bulky Scarf and I want to put a pair of lips on it. How to?
No silly answers. I’m making a scarf for a friend and I want to do a slanted lip design toward the end. I have red 4-worsted yarn at home, but I was wondering whether I should use paint, nail polish, or is there a way to actually use that yarn to knit something in. Any ideas?

Crocheting cotton would work for this, but it would take forever because it’s rather fine. My favorite yarn to work with is Red Heart Classic or Super Saver (same yarn, bigger skein.) That stuff works up easily, holds its shape well, and goes right into the washer and dryer with no problem whatsoever. Machine wash warm and tumble dry medium — and they mean it, too! It comes out really nice. It’s an acrylic yarn and doesn’t fade, either. You can find this yarn at Michaels, WalMart, JoAnn’s, Hobby Lobby, and online all over the place! At WalMart, it costs about a dollar for a 3 to 4 ounce skein and about .- for a 6 to 8 ounce skein. Mixed colors come in smaller skeins than do the solids. Michaels has it for about 20c more per skein, I think. It comes in an absolute ton of colors, too, so you can get almost anything. I have some sweaters that I knit 5-10 years ago with this yarn that are all still in the same shape I knit them into, despite almost weekly washings over those years during cooler weather.
