Today I made three scarves loosely based on this tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew (yet another one of my favorite bloggers).
A few differences:
- I bought plaid suiting fabric (clearance at Joann's) rather than homespun fabric. Suiting is much thicker and softer.
- I doubled up the scarf fabric to both hide the lengthening seam and double the warmth since it's already very cold here in North Dakota (lows dipping down to zero!)
- I only had frayed all lengths of the scarf on one of the three scarves, the other two just have frayed ends. I found that although fraying give it a super cool look, it also makes quite a mess.
- My scarves are slightly shorted, measuring about 70 inches long (still plenty long enough to double up and wrap around my neck)
I bought two yards of suiting fabric and was able to make three scarves, thanks to it being wider than traditional quilt (or in this case, homespun) fabric. Awesome.
I machine washed and dried all three - they survived, frayed a bit, and softened up very nicely.
