My lil sis, Tori, was knitting a scarf and got frustrated that it was taking so long so she came up with this idea to make a no-knit scarf. It is soooo cute! As soon as I saw it I had to have one. I just love it. And you know I love DIY projects too so this was right up my alley.
The yarn used for this is DIY winter scarf is Homespun Lion Brand Yarn (not sponsored or an affiliate). It is textured so it gives the scarf a bit of charm. First we measured out about 12 foot of yarn but we are short people. Just wrap the yarn around your neck like you would a scarf then add a foot for extra measure. You can always cut it shorter if you need to. This part of the process will vary depending on how long you want the scarf to be. Keep in mind that you can always trim it after it is finished too. You will need 50-100 pieces depending on how thick you want it.
Once the pieces are all cut and laid out, tie a knot in the end leaving about 12 inches of excess on the end for fringe. You want it to be secure but not not too tight.
Next, brush out the yarn with your fingers and then separate into three sections.
Twist each section loosely and hold the ends securely. Begin braiding. Don’t braid it too tightly.
You should see a thick braid begin to appear.
Once you reach the end (about 12 inches from longest piece of yarn), hold tightly under the braided portion and brush out the remaining yarn.
Carefully tie a loose but firm knot underneath the braid.
After the knot is tied, trim the remaining pieces of yarn to your liking. Tori and I prefer for the pieces to be uneven so we just trimmed it up a bit.
Finally, try on your new, most favorite winter wardrobe accessory. You can’t beat it for under $3, DIY, warm, and fashionable!
This would make a great last minute Christmas gift too!
