What do you get for a bright and cheery environmentally conscious best friend who's always cold for her sweet sixteen? You knit her a scarf made from all those stubborn scraps of fabric you can't seem to use! (I made my little brother model it!)
All I did was tie fairly long and thin scraps of fabric, ribbon, and even Christmas garland*, plastic streamers*, and caution tape together*. I knitted using size 17 needles and only seven stitches. A gauge is not necessary because the differences in materials causes it to be uneven. Don't worry if it is lumpy or uneven. This makes every scarf different and gives it some personality! I tried to make a pattern, but one could not see the difference in stitches.
*I only used these materials at the ends of the scarf because I did not want the scarf to be to itchy or to poke her neck.
