I have been stalking scarves a heck of a lot. Although, it is a struggle to remember to put them on as a fashion accessory. And that is exactly what I decided to make. There have been so many tutorials on knit scarves/necklaces. So I thought I would do a little different version using yarn.
This is super easy! Here are the step by step instructions.
You will need:
1-2 balls of yarn (your color choice...the thicker the better)
(Here I used 1 ball of yarn)
I did not measure my yarn specifically. I wrapped it around my neck 2 times until I got the exact shape and length. Then I cut several pieces of equal length to the first. I am not sure how many I cut, but that makes this so personal. It's as many pieces as you want. I wanted mine to be as big and chunky as possible using this particular yarn. If your yarn is fatter, you may not need as many strands to achieve the look.
Use a piece of thread as long as the scarf for the next part. Tie that piece of yarn around the one bunch. Start slightly up from where the 2 ends are tied together. Make sure you knot it.
Trim the one end and begin wrapping that piece around the bunch. Keep the wrapped pieces close together so that you cannot see any yarn underneith. Don't squeeze tight. Make it nice and even. Wrap the whole way over the thread tied ends and past it about equal to the distance from the beginning where the wrapping starts.
After you've completed the wrapping, tie your end. You can slip it under the last couple of wrapped pieces and then tie to one of the pieces in the bunch. You will probably need to trim off the end. Tuck it under and into the bunch and wrapped pieces.
You are done! Wrap it around twice for the best look.
