The Five Minute Knotted Scarf

The month of September always puts me on a shoe string budget with the long list of school, sports, and whatever else fees.  I have to find creative and thrifty ways to update my fall wardrobe. It is over the years that I have discovered that scarves are the perfect way to update my old leather jacket and make it feel new again!

As I was organizing my craft space over the past weekend I came across wool that I had purchased for my mother over a year ago.

Oops!  Sorry Mom!

Her loss has now become my seasonal gain!

Almost no materials are required except for a pair of scissors, choice of wool, and your expertise in knotting.

what you need for a knotted scarf

Next unravel your wool, spread out in an even U-Shape, and pull away several strands to knot your scarf.

measure at 30 cmNext step is where all of the fun happens!

Just twist, pull, and shout it out! Until you are parallel to the knot  on the other side of your scarf then make another knot to keep your beautiful twist.
