Want to help make the world’s longest scarf? The project is being run as part of next year’s Stitched Up Textile Festival in Wangaratta, Australia. Even beginning knitters can take part! Using 8-ply wool and 4mm needles, cast on 66 stitches and knit one metre lengths of garter stitch (knit every row). They should end up being 12 inches wide. Then just send them to the address listed. After the world record is verified, they’ll break up the lengths and use them to make blankets for the needy. I’m going to be doing it!
