How to Make a Chain Scarf

It's time to get crafty! I'm not a huge fan of the winter season, but one thing I do look forward to is scarf season :) I own too many scarves to count and I never get sick of them. They're comfortable to wear and they can dress up even the simplest outfit.

If you're anything like me, you wear one almost every day. But buying them can get expensive. I mean, who wants to spend $15 on a piece of fabric? If you're thinking the same thing, you've come to the right place. In this video, you'll learn how to make a chain scarf (I am by no means a videographer, so my video isn't the best quality, but it works). You can make your scarf as thick or thin as you want. If you want it thicker, you just add more strands of yarn to your chain, and less for a thin scarf. I've posted pictures of some that I've made so far. You can see that they're different sizes and choose the one you prefer.

This is the simplest and cheapest scarf you'll ever make. It cost me a grand total of $2.99 to make this. And better yet, you don't need to have any extra tools. All you need to use is your fingers! Really, it doesn't get easier than this.

Here's what you need:
One skein of yarn (I used super bulky, 4 or 5 oz.)

If you're going to make your scarf thicker than one strand, I suggest unrolling the hole skein and putting the two ends together and keep folding the yarn until you get as many strands together as you want. It might seem a little overwhelming at first. but if you have someone hold one end it makes it easier.
