I have this fun scarf I knit myself a few years ago that never fails to get compliments.
It’s a mish mash of different yarns, primarily a ball of chenille yarn, but interspersed with leftovers from other projects – some eyelash fringe yarn, some cotton yarn, even some ribbon & hem lace I had lying around.
Repair was necessary if I was going to wear it again. I quickly came to the idea that rather than try to pick up stitches or knit it back together, a more stable repair was in order. Something funky.
