Have you ever been suckered into buying those cheap "pashmina" scarves at the craft store (or any store for that matter)? No? Just me? Shucks. Well I picked one up the other week because they were on super sale for $2! Despite the fact that Spring is supposed to be right around the corner, it's been cold as heck here so I grabbed a nude colored one. I had the intention of making this scarf but alas, I couldn't find black lace in the correct width. I did have a four inch wide lace piece in my stash so instead, I made this lace and fringe square scarf.
The fun part of the scarf is not the contrasting colors (because that isn't necessary -- it's just what I had on hand) but the textures; that's what keeps everything fresh and interesting.
I'm a bad blogger though. Tsk tsk. I didn't take picture while I was making it simply because I wasn't really sure that it would turn out looking okay since I was just winging it. It wasn't all that hard though so you could definitely do it.
What you have to do is start with a wide scarf and create a square. You'll do this by folding the short end diagonally over the rest of the scarf and snip, snip, snipping. This is a great way to upcycle a scarf with a hole or maybe a stain on one side.
With that, you're done!
Just fold it diagonally (like a triangle) and knot it up with two of the loose ends. Slip it over your head and you're good to go :)
