"Catch and Release" Scarf
Well, I'm copycatting again. I saw this idea on Pinterest (and can you believe it?? I actually got OFF of Pinterest and made something!!) and had to try it out. It looked easy, beautiful, and totally something I could crank out in bulk (for, ahem, Christmas, perhaps...)
Kelli has a very excellent tutorial here. As with all things, I skipped a step or two (mostly the measuring-the-lines thing... I kindof eyeballed it.) I picked a bunch of clearance fabrics, 3 yards long, and went to town. In the time it took me to watch one movie, I had finished 12 scarves and was disappointed it was time to stop.
Here are some photographs:
This white one was my particular favorite. The fabric itself is a little stretchy, and makes a soft, comfortable, and absolutely gorgeous scarf. I asked Jayson if it would be selfish of me to keep one of the white ones... after glancing at the 11 others I'd finished in 2 hours, he smiled and said, "I think you may have earned that one."
Which one is your favorite?
