Yarn Scarf....


I found this scarf on a
blog I stumbled across a while back. I knew I wanted to make it. I even pinned it onto my Pinterest collection. 
 
The blog is called Katy Did and she has some neat ideas in her blog. (And the cutest little girl!)
Check it out. (although she seems to have stopped contributing to her blog after an unfortunate copyright incident......)

Anyway, here is the scarf. As you can see, it's all thick, soft yarn and it's
stitched together!!

I used gold yarn and I happened to have some shiny gold thread left over from another project. I used that for sewing it together.


I left a bigger space between the stitching than Katie did.


It wasn't easy stitching across the yarn. I couldn't keep the yarn as wide apart as I wanted to. The sewing machine kept smooshing it together. 
For the first few sections, I used masking tape to hold the yarn together, but it was a bull to pull off without shredding the fuzziness of the yarn. If I had had some of that less sticky blue tape, it probably would have worked better.

By leaving bigger spaces between the stitching, I am able to interlock the scarf halves to wear it without tying it.
I made it the same length as one of my regular scarves.

As a matter of fact, I am wearing it right now!

Thanks, Katie.

That is so clever. Love it. However I won't try to make this one. I am crocheting a green scarf today for a granddaughter that I won the task of making for her by signing up on Facebook on her clever page. For 2 other ladies I am making a couple of hot pads each. I love crochet.

Very clever,and I love the colors. I'm knitting a shawl with cable designs - great for the snowy weather we are having, now if I could just get it finished before the snow it gone.

I LOVE that scarf! What a fantastic idea Elenka! It's too bad she lost her site. I just googled Katy Did and there are a million different things in that name....including a green bug I have never seen...yuck!..a new bug! Anyway...I don't have a sewing machine Elenka. This would probably be a B**** to do by hand if at all possible?

Beautiful - I love it, too. And I can imagine how hard it would be to sew across the yarn. Don't think I'll try it - instead, I'll admire yours.

Beautiful! We are in AK right now and I am wearing a knit scarf a friend gave me. It is beautiful but chilly here for this GA peach...
