Winter Idea File: No Knit Scarf

Here's a cozy yet speedy project. Cut 12 pieces of bulky-weight yarn to about 1 1/2 times the desired length of the final scarf. (We used 140-inch pieces to make an 86-inch scarf.) Divide yarn into 4 bunches of 3 strands each. Tie 2 bunches together with a square knot, leaving 6 inches of fringe at end; repeat with remaining bunches. Pin the knots to a piece of foam board. Knot inner 2 bunches of yarn together, spacing knot about 1 inch from existing knots, then knot left and right bunches together. Alternate knotting the inner bunches and the left and right ones, spacing knots evenly apart, until about 6 inches of yarn remain on the end. Finish so that final knots mirror opposite end, and trim to even the ends.


  1. I would love LOVE to try this...if only I had found it before Christmas, I probably would have made on for all on my list. Too bad school and work start tomorrow...and my free time from here on will be depressingly nonexistant. Why can't we just craft and blog all day. Poopsicles real world!

  2. Hi! I dropped by from the Magical Monday Hop, loved this scarf and then read down a few posts to the hot chocolate recipe...that was it I had to obviously have some great ideas and as I have none...this could work well to my advantage lol. I' not sure if you are new to blogging but I seem to be 'Follower' number one - whoop whoop!.
    Lovely to meet you and I shall be back for more where is my yarn?
    Warm wishes
