We're ready to leave tomorrow for Part I of Christmas Vacation - my family. I've been frantically sewing this week after being gone last week on a hunting trip then having the flu, leaving only 4 days to get my gift sewing done. I needed a quick, last-minute gift for girlfriends and remembered all the great shirred, scrunchy knit scarves I've been seeing in Blog-Land...
The first tutorial I found was for the pink scarf above by Hope Studios. This was a very fast project - 15 minutes total per scarf. The tutorial by Hope Studios is found here. I made a few changes after the first scarf. I preferred a width of 8" for 2 rows of shirring and 10" wide with 3 rows of shirring. My knits were 60" wide in various lengths, so I pieced them together to lengths of about 90" x 8-10" wide. I chose not to make the cuts at the ends of my scarves as in the tutorial. Wind plenty of bobbins with your elastic thread - I used 1 bobbin per scarf. They turned out great and I plan to make some for myself once the frantic gift sewing is over.
