I had a bunch of silk scarves that needed pruning; the ones that didn't make the cut got made into the following scarf:





And also a fatbottom bag.  See the Debbie Stoller section for a photo of that:

Hi Crazy Girl,

It's really easy.  I just cut the scarves into strips about 1/2 wide, zig-zaging from one side of the square to the other:



Then you crochet with a large crochet hook, joining as you go.  I did this in sc but I wish I'd ribbed it (by crocheting just into the back strand of each stitch as you go.  Stay in the back strand even when you turn, and you'll get a ribbed effect) since this fabric is quite stiff.  The ribbing gives a bit of stretch, which would make it more wearable, I think.

It looks lovely.  But I'm going to have to warn mother away from buying you any silk scarves at estate sales... who knows what tortures you'll inflict upon them!!

Great idea.  And if you really wanted to you could stitch the ends to each other and have no knots.  That would be a great way to make up a cloth "yarn" ball.

Thanks everyone!  I think this took around 12 or 15 scarves...I don't recall exactly.  The scarves vary a lot in size, of course, and you have to vary the width of your strips to accommodate the density of the weave, so that the strips are all even.  Stitching the scarf strips together would totally work, too--though the crochet stitch is large enough that you can't notice in of the knots in this one.  Especially because every "corner" where you turn in the scarf creates a small bump; the texture is overall a bit uneven, so things like knots or even splices would just blend in.

beautiful work. 

I believe I've read about using scarves for something like purse linings, but I don't remember for sure.  catdaddytn
