GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
*update: someone purchased a cream and cranberry colored scarf so the winner of this giveaway can pick ANY colors listed in my etsy shop for their scarf (including cream and cranberry still!)*
30 million youtube viewers cant be wrong: the only thing greater than a rainbow is a DOUBLE RAINBOW! with that logic in mind, i give you the double braided scarf:
cream and cranberry. full of double braidy goodness.
when i was first trying to hack the original braided scarf, i had a fleeting thought: "what if the closure could be a braid too?" but i didn't even entertain it seriously. i couldnt begin to tackle that as i swam through dozens of photos trying to find a way to depict creating just the basic single braided scarf.
i cast it aside as impossible, an m.c. escher impossible structure in fabric form. but then a reader, brandy, asked in the comments of the tutorial if there was a way to do it. so i had to at least try. and after some brain-bending and neuron melting and considerably more effort than the single braid, it was done!
since a bunch of folks have commented or emailed about skipping the sewing and purchasing the scarves already made, i decided to make the double-braids for selling rather than doing a tutorial for them right away. you can now find the listing for your own custom double-braided scarf in my etsy shop.
but wait there's more.
in honor of this new creation i am going to give away the very scarf pictured above to one of you!
