I put this scarf together last night. I started with a light see thru black material with 22 inches wide by the width of the fabric. I serged the edges and ran 3 baste stitches down the centre of the scarf and 2 inches from each side. I was lazy when I gathered and went with a single baste row & thought I would take my chances against the thread breaking. After it was gathered, I ran a 3 step zigzag to hold the gathers in place.
It has been a cool summer here and my office is as cold as a fridge with the air conditioning.
The next time, I would make it slightly more narrow and longer. I am thinking 16 inches by 60 inches. But it will do the trick as is!
I also got my swap package mailed this morning. It should arrive in 6-12 days!
