Make a Harf

Before I ever heard of an infinity scarf I was making what my 4year old calls a Harf. Very easy to make, as well as functional. Last night I made 2 of the girls Harfs due to the fact they have been whining about the 4year old for the past year. now when we go outside for a walk, all of us girls put on our Harfs.
To make one you simply crochet or knit a single panel about 15 inches wide and 4 feet or so long. The length will be totally up to you as to how tight you want it wrapped on your head. I made the girls about 4.5 to 5 feet long. And then you stitch the 2 ends together for a large loop. Here is their demonstration on how to wear the Harf. The name kills me hahahahaha Take your Harf and hang it around your neck like so.
Next you cross your Harf, much like you would to tie your shoes, but so you have a loop. Notice the first section at the neck…this is now your scarf and the second loop will be your hood.
Now take the second loop of your Harf and slide is over your face onto your head. Each child has a different way to wear her Harf. child one likes hers to hang and cover her shoulders. Child two likes to cover her mouth and nose to stay warm, and child three does whatever she wants. The back of the hood can be tucked into the neck part or pulled over it. Totally up to you.
Child three was getting upset because I would not take more pictures of uses she has for her Harf. She lets it hang down for just a scarf or in a pinch she will twist the Harf to get 2 loops and put it on as a skirt. At any rate, it is a fast project & you can embellish it in lots of ways. Mine is black with no beading or anything. primarily I am terrified my chickens will attack me when I collect eggs and they see beads twinkle 🙂
