Day 2! Pink Cuddle Scarf

I have made these knotted scarves before for my sister-in-laws Christmas presents a few years back. They are cozy, cute and best of all no knitting required! I tried knitting for like, five minutes, literally, and stopped when a nice 10 row scarf became a 16 row trapezoid... Apparently, knitting and crochet-related crafts are not in my genes, like I had once hoped :( Oh well, if they were I wouldn't be able to post this super cute and cozy, cuddle scarf. This seriously could be made by anyone with a set of thumbs.

 I did a little one for my first Valentine, Venice, who is feeling a little under the weather and needs a little extra cuddle.

These are so simple to make! It took only 10 minutes to whip up. It consists of 4 groups of 4 strands of equal length yarn (depending on who its for, longer for adults, shorter for kids) in your choice of color. We chose 2 shades of light pink.
The rest of the instructions can be found at the link below. Just a lot of knotting, really.
 I had mine taped up on the vent of the fireplace so Giselle couldn't grab at the yarn while I was tying the knots!

My little bug all wrapped up in love!

I used the fluffy yarn (which I'm pretty sure is the technical term..) just for fullness, as well I used extra yarn. The instructions at the link says to use 4 groups of 3 strands, but the extra one really makes a difference.

I don't know what is cuter, the scarf or the baby. And you gave me my only out loud laugh today with your Buddy the Elf comment. :-)
