The temperature scarf is a project that involves knitting or crocheting one row or motif every day based on the low/high temperatures. By the end of the year, you have a unique project that records a year of weather history. Knitters and crocheters have interpreted this idea in so many ways: cowls, hats, blankets, etc. It is amazing to me how the random color combinations work so well together.
If you are thinking about starting a project like this, Marie from Underground Crafter offers some great tips:
*Choose your project carefully. Different project and stitch combinations should be considered carefully to make sure they go well together.
*Choose yarns with similar care instructions. She even suggests choosing yarns from the same company because the colors tend to go together better.
*Create a color key. Once you decide on a project and yarn colors, create a key of which yarn colors correspond with which temperature ranges.
Most importantly, Marie reminds us to not give up. While it may be overwhelming to crochet/knit one row every day, it might be easier to complete 30 rows at the end of each month.
