How to Make the 'Love' Scarf
If you are looking for a little 'love' in your life - or on your scarf, the following is my quick and easy project (pictures below).
List of Supplies:
- an acrylic or wool felted type of scarf
- left over red yarn (about 2 yards, or more or less, depending on what you plan to write with the yarn)
- size F crochet hook
- straight pins
- sewing needles (several threaded with red thread)
- red thread
- chainstitch 75 stitches (do not cut yet) - arrange word 'Love' on scarf - after arranging the word, then end the chain and snip both ends - pin to scarf - sew on.
Time: - less than 5 hours - Like most of my projects I do them over a period of time. This being a quick project I did all the preparation (chain stitch, arranging the word, pinning, and basting) on one day, and the next day I did the the sewing.
Tips: - keep the thread on the needle to about 15 inches long to avoid tangling. - I threaded 6 needles the night before so once I started sewing I would not have to stop to thread another needle.
Enjoy the 'Love'
