Cut about 40 pieces of yarn 15 inches long. Fold each piece in half and pull through the narrow end of scarf. Pull the ends of the piece through the loop. Incorporate the tails from the rows into the fringe. Repeat on the opposite end. Trim fringe evenly.
Is this random or do you make sure to make a scarf everymonth. Just curious.
Your very kind to share all of these patterns.
