DIY {braided or infinity} Scarf Made From… A Scarf

Okay, so winter is getting in its last throws before spring, and this poor little scarf just couldn’t take it anymore.

It was a cute ruffle-edged knit number…

…whose life just sort of unraveled. Literally.

So rather than go through the tedious process of reruffling (is that a word?) and resewing this scarf, I removed the ruffle the rest of the way around the edge, leaving me with two looooong intestine like ropes of knit goodness.

Is it really a true upcycle if you make a scarf into… a scarf? I don’t know, but first I did a two strand quickie braid (I guess I’ll need to post a tutorial on how to do this because I can’t find one, boo!).

I love the huge chainlink sort of look it created.

But in the end, I went with a simple look, just looping the two ropes around my neck a gazillion times into a loose infinity scarf.

So that’s how I made a brand new scarf out of, umm… a scarf. I’m crafty like that.

But let’s face it, in a throw-away culture, it feels good to give something another go, right? Wheeee!
