Hi everyone! Today I will be sharing how to make your own yarn scarf. These scarfs are not only soft but warm, too. Here is what you will need to get started.
- All of your favorite colors of yarn
- A tape measure
- Duct tape
- A friend to help you (Or a sister)
This scarf will take about an hour and a half to complete. To start put a piece of duct tape on your floor or edge of your table. Next measure out fifty inches starting at the duct tape and ending with another piece of duct tape.
Choose your first yarn and put the end on one piece of duct tape. Pull the yarn until it reaches the other piece of duct tape. It helps to have someone else at the other piece of duct tape holding the end. After that hold your yarn on both pieces of tape and double it. Bring your yarn back to the first piece of duct tape.
Do you see how the same colors are beside each other in my picture? This next step will help blend all of the colors together. What you need to do is lay each color group over a flat surface until all of them are separated.Then go to each color and grab one of each of the colors until all of them are gone. Be careful when grabbing each color to hold the ends neatly in one of your hands.
For this next step you will need another person to help you. One of you hold the scarf in the middle and the other one of you grab the longer piece of yarn that you set aside. This is for the person that has the longer piece of yarn, grab that one piece of yarn in the middle and wrap it around the middle of the scarf that the other person is holding then tie it once. Wrap it around again and tie it again. Do this one more time but knot it. You will want to pull the knot pretty tight. There you have it!
All you have to do now is give it a haircut! You should have one end with smooth ends (this was the one that you were holding when you put it together) and one end that is kind of uneven. Just use your scissors and even it out a little bit.
Now I will show you how I like to tie my scarf. Grab your scarf in the middle. It should be easy to find because of the yarn wrapped around it. Next fold your scarf in half so that it is doubled.
Wrap it around your neck and hold the side with the loop. On your other side you have all of your ends. Split the ends in half and bring one section through the loop.
Next twist the loop and bring the other half through.
Straighten it up and then you are done! You have a beautiful colorful scarf! Tell me how yours works. :)
I like to braid my scarf together when I am through wearing it so that it does not get tangled.
