Sorry, I couldn't resist the jazz hands!

I basically used this tutorial, but instead of new material, I sliced up two t-shirts of my boyfriend's that was deceptively huge.  (IIRC, they were both larges.  The bottom hem ran roughly 26" from seam to seam.)  It's pretty simple; you just slice up the shirt (or material) into strips, run a basting stitch through the center-ish of each, then attach each of the black strips to one another.  Repeat for the grey strips.  Make long ruffle, shoot in a row of stitches to secure the ruffle, then attach the grey to the black.  The link explains everything in better detail than I did, lol. 

As you can see from the above photo, it is a shorter scarf.  Had I followed the directions perfectly instead of winging it, lol, it would have added about 32" or so onto the finished scarf.

Here's a photo of just the scarf:

Thanks in advance for looking!

Twice the mayham, triple the force, ten times the action: total hardcore.
