I LOVE this scarf! It is so simple to make and can be worn in all seasons. Wear it with a coat, sweater, t-shirt, or even a dress in the summer. I got the idea from The Purl Bee. There are many great projects on that blog, and I'll be making at least several more of them on my blog.
What you will need:
*linen (58 x 20 inches)
*bobbles (3 yards)
*thread to match your linen
Step 1: Snip a little hole as seen below, and pull a fiber to reveal the straight line of the weave. If the fiber breaks, pull another one.
You will end up with something like this. Cut along this line. You will need to do this on one edge of the fabric, and then 20 inches down from there. Then you will have your 20 x 58 inch piece ready to go.
Step 2: Fold approximately one inch along each 58-inch side and press. You are folding towards the wrong side of the linen.
Step 3: Fold over one more time and press.
Step 4: Fold back in the other direction to create a little area for your bobbles to go. Press.
Step 5: Pin the bobble ribbon into the fold.
Step 6: Using a zipper foot, sew right along the edge closest to the bobbles.
Step 7: Now sew down the opposite side:
Note: This happened while I was pressing my folds. Oh well! I just chopped it off and all was fine.
Step 8: After sewing the bobbles onto both 58-inch sides, fold the scarf in half with right sides together. Line up the selvedge edge and sew across.
Step 9: Press the seam open and sew down each side to tack down the selvedge.
Below is the first bobble scarf I made. The bobbles are smaller on this scarf. I like the bigger bobbles and the smaller bobbles equally! Next time I want to try to use a linen that is more sheer.
