So I made mine, and The weaving thing was rather easy and mindless (as long as I kept the 4 bundles of yarn seperate!

I used mostly yarn, (Homespun, Fun fur, Eyelash, Moonlight Mohair, and anything I had laying around), some ribbons, and some I cord that I made on this machine that my mom bought (Which I had nothing to use it on until now!).

Here are the pics! (But don't tell my sister because it is her B-Day present! Which is 4 days after Christmas!)



I tried to get a close up of the weaving but it didn't work to well!



Thanks for the inspiration for such a simple project. (I made them both this afternoon!)

I was inspired by this craft along, but I didn't weave it the same way. (hope this still counts!)

Still used yarns of different thicknesses, hues, textures and lustures, but  kept some of the yarn strands separate and some clumped together when weaving. In there, is sa little white hand-spun, some feather wool, and mostly felted slubbing dyed with kool-aid. I used Grape, ice blue, and lime.

Here's the new owner  Smiley

Here are a few picturess of mine! My good camera is at school, so you just get a few "in the process" ones. I used mostly random strands of yarn as well as a few things of ribbon. I also chainstitched one strand, just for fun.


There it is all spread out before I braided it


here's my "I'm almost done braiding it, whoo!" shot


and this one is when it's done and I just folded it up to see more of the colors. I made mine a little shorter than I originally wanted it, because one of the ribbons I bought was only 6 feet long - pre braiding. I wore it yesterday for the first time and got a bunch of comments on it. Yay! Thanks for doing this with me, guys.

Thanks everyone, I'm pleased you all like it!

All the materials were cheap and easily available (kool-aid + slubbing) so I'm sure you could do it too Smiley
The weaving is the same as one learns in school: over + under.
Start in the centre and weave outwards and that's about all there is to it!

Hi everyone!  I saw this scarf project and love it!  So I made one.  I used red, black, white, blue, grey, and purple yarn and embroidery floss.  I mixed the colors together, and braided.  I love this scarf!  Here are the pics:

This is the whole scarf:



This is a detail of the braiding:



This is a pic of the knotted ends:


I love my new, so-easy-to-make scarf!
