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.
Sadly, my lackadaisical style of knitting means the scarf has not necessarily held up incredibly well.
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.
Which is how I came to sewing scraps of fleece in areas where stitches had come undone to create more stability.

I love fun, funky scarves – this is great!!
Thanks! I quite love it.
SUPER FUNKY. And who doesn’t love an accessory that is made-to-order-awesome?
My mini fashion adviser gave me a look when I talked about fixing it, but wholeheartedly approved of the fix once she saw it completed. She agreed, it was the perfect fix.
