So, I didn't sew it, knit it, or crochet it so I guess it goes here? A 9 foot long Rapunzel scarf for a tall friend for Christmas. I used about 10 different yarns. I found packs of "funky fibers" on clearance at my local quilt shop - 8 9 foot lengths of funky yarns. So, I added a few I had around to make it a bit more bulky.


I used two strands of black yarn in each strand of the braid. I think if I did it again I would only use one so it wasn't quite so black.

It was crazy easy. I made a knot in the top and hooked it on a robe hook in the bathroom. I put a clothespin around each strand of the braid (10 pieces of yarn in each strand) and then just braided. Moved the clothespins down as I went. I think that part took me maybe 20 minutes and cutting took 10 minutes, but I already had some of the yarns in precut bundles. But overall, an hour or less. And it just looks all funky and cool.
