I love these scarves;

except there extremely pricey [on 50$ amonth for all clothing] and it's such a simple thing. Is there any way I could make that. I'd like it to be that material, not like knitted. Here's the link to the scarf;

Lovely scarf ^^
I'm not really sure, but I don't see any seams in that scarf, which would mean it was either woven like that (With the stripes) or dyed. I think it more likely to be woven like that, so I don't think you'd be able to make THAT scarf without weaving it yourself. (I guess you'd just set the warp with the stripes of black and gray and use a gray weft.)

If you don't mind having seams in the middle of the scarf you could find  a fabric you like in those colors, and I would recommend french seams (They look a little better than an ovelocked seams, imho)

Another thing you could do would be getting an all-gray scarf (Or make the scarf yourself) and dye the stripes... I'm not sure how to go about it tho Sad Maybe someone else around here could help you with that ^^

I think, if you like to weave, weaving it like that would be the best choice ^^ It WILL take a little longer, but the seamless result and the line definition you wouldn't get from dyeing it are worth it ^^

Maybe you should just walk around the fabric store. The site say's it's cotton and polyester. I don't see why you couldn't find a woven fabric similiar to that.

AS far the the fringe goes, I do not know how you will do that, but I am sure you could find out a way to do it, even if you have to make and sew on the fringe yourself.

The fringe looks fairly simple:

First of all, draw out the wefts from a section of the cloth a bit deeper than you want your fringe to be.

Then, choose a number of warp threads to each bit of the fringe.  Spin these between your fingers (individually if they're thick, or a few together if they're thin) in the direction they're spun in until they're trying to curl up on themselves, then let the lot ply up together to make the cord for each bit of the fringe.  Tie an overhand knot as near the end as you can manage (this is the fiddly bit).  Repeat across the width of the fabric.

Don't forget to run a seam across the fabric above where your fringe starts.  That helps to prevent it from tearing up too far.

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

hmm... that makes so much more sense than what I suggested XD
I guess I'm just used to making things from scratch ^^... My mind just  can't think "Maybe there's a fabric like that that you could buy" LoL... Anyway, sorry if my first post made it look too difficult to make Tongue
