Make a Fringy Christmas Scarf!

Fringe Fleece Winter Scarf

Get your festive on by whipping up a fringe fleece winter scarf. Because it’s made of fleece, there’s no need to do any fancy edge-stitchin’ (fleece doesn’t fray). Just a center seam holds it all together–and that, by the way, could be done by hand!

Here’s what you’ll need to make one:

  • scissors
