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.
