I haven't made them, but I made very similar things in grade school many years ago -

You wrap the yarn around a strip of cardboard a bunch.  Then, you slip the needle and yarn under the yarn and along the cardboard until the yarn on the needle runs along the length of the cardboard under all the wrapped yarn.  That way, you can tie the yarn that was on the needle in a knot around one side of all that looped yarn.

Does that make sense?

Would a picture help? The first photo on this page shows the part where you use the scisors between the cardboard.

I got my Kidsilk Haze from that ebay seller today! It is so gorgeous I'm afraid to knit with it.

I want to try the Airy Scarf, but I think I'm going to try the pattern out first w/ some crappy yarn, so I'll be sure I know what I'm doing.

Yes, I'm weird.

Yay! Thanks for all the pom pom help.  Sounds like you simply tie a string around fringe, like an open tassel and fluff up.  I was keen on trying to learn the cardboard way since I didn't have the donut cutouts lying around and didn't want to go to Michael's!

Progress on airy scarf so far:



If that didn't work - here's the link. http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/julswei/album?.dir=/9466&.src=ph

Note the nice screw up I made when I started and the two eyelets are too close together.  That was how I figured out that I was leaving out a yarn over.

I heart everyone's projects from this book (I heart this book.  there.).  I have made several things, with several others still-in-prog (most photos of such should be, or will be on my blog), but I wanted to share the lastest.  This also gives a visual as to how it might fit a toddler (well, at least my particular totlet).  Here...cotton hat:



I think I might make the length a tad longer next time (I just like' em that way), as does the tie appear a bit high to anyone else?  I just assumed that it would hit lower on the head.  Maybe not.  Maybe it's just my so-so knitting skills.  It's a very cute and easy hat pattern regardless!
