Another Pinterest idea! A blanket scarf can be worn several ways and even used as a shawl. Or a throw! And it's a brainless project that can be done while watching a movie. (and the threads can be used in a "birdnest helper")
I got 2 yards of flannel --- shirting flannel so that the print is the same on both sides. Even it up with rotary or scissors and begin fringing the ends. Just use a stitch ripper and take one row of thread out at a time until the fringe is as long as you want. I also barely fringe the sides. I've seen a suggestion on Pinterest to use your sewing machine and stitch across where you want the fringe to stop. I may try that, but for now, I'm doing what most of the patterns instruct and just fringing til I want to stop.
For a true blanket scarf, 2 yards works perfectly. But this fabric can also be cut in half lengthwise for 2 long scarves that aren't as wide. I like that look also!

More to come!
September 2016: I gave my first blanket scarves to my Spearfish peeps: April, Ashley, Amy, and Jan.
April modeled hers for me, and hopefully I'll get pix from the other 3!
|Chloe, her sister, and her mom got matching ones in PG colors!|
November 2016: A few given for early Christmas this year!
