Quick Scarf Craft for January

As a result of our gift exchange at the December Dinner, Ginny garnered a gorgeous scarf from Sherry.  On closer inspection, we realized the scarf was simply made of 13 strands of a variety of yarn types and colors.  "What a great idea!" we all said, "We could make that at the next guild meeting in about 10 minutes!"

And so it came to be.  If you'd like to leave the January Choo Choo Quilt Guild Meeting with a gorgeous scarf, here's what to do:

  • Look for some specialty yarns at places like Hobby Lobby or Joann Fabrics, or in your own craft closet.  Specialty yarns can be chenille, eyelash yarns, metallic infused yarns, swirled and textured yarns, boucle tweed, fur yarns, and anything that strikes your eye as being pretty in a scarf.
  • Choose a skein of yarn in a blue or green or purple color scheme
  • Cut 13 pieces of yarn that are 86" long

Bring them to the meeting.  We will trade them, then knot them, and go home with a beautiful scarf!
