Scrunchy Scarf

Melissa and I saw these scarves at Hope Studios and HAD to make some.

Melissa wearing her scarf in Utah.


Me wearing my scarf in Kentucky.


These are sooooo easy and inexpensive to make. I made mine a little longer than the tutorial suggested ( I did 108 inches long or 3 yards instead of the 72 inches or 2 yards that the tutorial suggests).

I bought 3 yards of the jersey knit (I used my 40%off coupon and so I paid $7.00 for 3 yards) and I made 5 scarfs out of it!!! I'm going to JoAnns tomorrow to get some more fabric and elastic thread. For that price I can make one for all the ladies on my list!

very cute! I like how Kathryn made the longer one. I think I like the look of it better. Thanks for the idea.

I love both of your scarves! The red color really suits your sister.

And the design of yours is really nice too, not to mention a practicle color.

I guess you are probably addicted! These would probably I think make great gifts.

Thanks for sharing
