As the snow begins to melt, the knitting project that got me through the storm is finished. Casting on 11 stitches on size 10 needles, follow the pattern of knit 1, purl 1 to create a strip of color. Make 3 strips in total (with a length of around 52 inches).
Line the 3 strips next to each other and use the loose strings to sew the ends together (side-by-side). With that done, simply braid the strips. And sew the ends together like before.
Then to keep the braid in place, I used loose pieces of yarn to tack down where the strips overlaid each other. I simply used a double knot and cut off the loose ends. And ta-da! You have yourself a homemade scarf!
