Same idea here--I made this chunky scarf during my knitting phase, sophomore year of college, probably? It was cute and all, but I associate it with the cropped corduroy blazers, crewneck wooly sweaters, and flared Hollister jeans I wore it with, and it was really long, and the fringe was so bulky and not elegant...
So I remade it. So glad those circle scarves are in right now, cuz this one was a perfect candidate for a remake! Wanna see how I did it? I doubt you need the step-by-step, but here are the pics anyway! ;)
- Remove all the fringe pieces. You should have some pretty prominent gaps where they were looped through.
- Using a large needle, connect the end of the scarf if you have one and a piece of fringe--or, just a couple pieces of fringe tied together. Or, of course, if you have more yarn, use that.
- Going from loop to loop, sew the ends together!
- At the edge, tie off with the other end of yarn, if you have one--if not, loop around and create a knot with the yarn piece itself.
Ta-da! Wear in loops as you choose!
