How to make it

  1. Snuggly Fleece Scarves - Step 1

    Have each person choose a motif -- perhaps one shown here -- or a brand-new design you've thought up together.

  2. Snuggly Fleece Scarves - Step 2

    Cut out the shapes you'll need to create it from the scraps of fleece. For example, a night scene might consist of several stars and a crescent moon. Or you can use 2 circles for a snowman's body and head and then add a hat and other distinguishing details.

  3. Experiment with where to place your cutouts on the scarf (we decorated a 12-inch portion just above a lower edge). Use the needle and floss to attach the pieces with single stitches knotted by hand. One stitch should be enough to hold smaller pieces (such as a flower or snowflake).

  4. Larger pieces (such as the crescent moon) may take 2 or more. Trim the ends above each knot to the length you desire.

  5. Fringed Finale: For fringe, make a series of 4-inch snips in the scarf bottom. Then tie an overhand knot at the top of each strip.
