Multi strand jersey scarfs
A few days ago, I found a great tutorial about creating a spaghetti necklace scarf at Retro chic UK blog.
I've seen something similar in some stores, mainly on-line, like Diesel, Urban outfitters and on etsy and so I thought I should give it a try in creating my version of it.
I had some jersey fabric (I used a tube fabric that was 40 cm large and the whole length -150 cm) and using a rotary cutter, it was pretty easy to create some of these unisex cozy scarfs. The only trick is to lengthen with hands the strings that was formed in the cutting process, in way that they obtain the rounded look(and that way, the raw edges tend to become almost invisible).It can be worn in more relaxed way (when forming the figure 8 just once), like a necklace or even 3 times rounded, becoming more like a collar scarf.
Have you noticed my mannequin? It is a BD present from my sister (kids size 5, 6, 7 yrs) and I am loving it (even that my kids think that it needs a head:)
Have a wonderful week,
