Friday: Completing A Cord Scarf

Hello Friends and Happy Friday from wherever you are! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you stay awhile and consider subscribing.

If you’re part of the family…then Welcome Back! How are you today?

Hi Friends!  I hope everyone is having a great Friday, and as it’s commonplace now … Stay positive, stay safe, be well and keep your head up.

Today I’m completing an older project.

When I re-learned to crochet, I was on fire.  There was no project that I wouldn’t tackle, and I wanted to do everything, and buy every type of yarn and fabric I could find.  I was completely obsessed.

I gave scarves and hats, and other trinkets away for holiday gifts, birthdays, and all occasions.  However I slowed down as “good” yarn became more expensive to use, and I was starting to run out of space for the storage of the yarn and accessories.

I wanted to find some images to share, however, because they are at least 6 years old, who knows where that memory card is.  I know I must do better.

Quick Project

I have 3 corded scarves to work with. The Fettucini Lion Brand yarn has been discontinued, however, I found my t-shirt yarn from an Etsy shop called Fab-U-Loop.  (She’s closing her shop, once she sells out of this yarn because her orders have tripled as folks are ar using this to make masks) You can also find the same style of yarn by Hooked which is sold at Joann’s.

  • 3 finished corded scarves
  • Assorted wooden beads
  • 1 needle with large eye (hole)
  • Scissors

Finishing

I’m basically finishing this scarf so the unfinished portion is tucked away under the beads.

I took the knot apart and then I added my large wooden beads to one side.

Then tied a knot to secure the entire cord.

One side was weaved into the existing work.

The other side was inserted back through the beads and then cut at the tip. I adjusted the beads so no unfinished ends are visible … “And that’s it!”

I’m always excited about clearing out my stash, and I’ve started clean out my junky craft cart which is a plus. The goal is to send everything I’ve created (minus a few items, that I’ll use) over the past few weeks to my friends and family.

I should have my Cricut accessories next week, so I can send cards to my family as well.  What projects are you working on during this time at home?  Share them in the comments!

With that, I’ll end my post today.  I hope everyone has had a great week, stay safe amongst the chaos.  Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe …  have a great weekend. — Peace —
