Snowfall Scarf



The Snowfall Scarf is a simple depiction of winter's beauty. Sweet embroidered snowflakes swirl around on a night sky fleece scarf. This pretty and easy to make project is perfect for a special person on your list.

The snowflakes are simple four petaled lazy daisies...you can click below for a full photo tutorial:

The scarf shown here is embroidered with white yarn for larger and loftier snowflakes, but alternatively you could use embroidery floss for a more delicate snowflake.

Materials:
1 piece of fleece cut for a scarf (scarf shown is 72 inches long and 10 inches wide)
White yarn or white embroidery floss
Needle (For yarn snowflakes, use a yarn needle like you would use for weaving in ends of a knitting or crochet project. For snowflakes made with embroidery floss, use a cross stitch/tapestry needle, I prefer a size 26, but it's up to you).


Instructions:
  • Cut the fleece to the measurement that you like (measurements above are perfect for an adult or teen, make it a bit shorter for kids. Be sure to cut off any selvage too. (Basic tutorial for fleece scarves 4 different ways)
  • I chose a basic fringe scarf for this scarf...alternatively you could make a plain rectangle scarf as well. 
  • Cut a length of yarn or embroidery floss and thread it on the needle with a tail. 
  • Before you begin, plan how and where you would like the snowflakes to be. Lined up or randomly placed? All over the entire scarf or along the edge? 
  • Embroider as many snowflakes as you like. Click on the link above for a lazy daisy tutorial.
