So I just finished knitting <a href="http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t259/angelorum/Scarf.jpg" target="_blank">this scarf,</a> and I love the way it looks, but it's just a tad scratchy on the neck. feels fine on my hands, arms, etc, but scratchy around the neck. Any ideas on how to make a softer backing for it, either with different yarn or fabric maybe??

Try soaking it in a bunch of hair conditioner first--just the cheap stuff. Soak it overnight and then rinse and block. It can make a huge difference!<br><br><br>
Gorgeous scarf, btw.

Good idea, don't know why I didn't think to try this first.

That is a beautiful scarf!<br><br>
If the conditioner doesn't work, maybe you could line it with some silk? <a href="http://www.dharmatrading.com" target="_blank">www.dharmatrading.com</a> has inexpensive silk scarves you could use. I think it could be really beautiful, especially if it were dyed to match.<br><br>
peace, beth
