• 2 skeins of Ozark Handspun (34 yards each)
• 1 Rectangular Butterfly Loom
• Simple yarn for tying like Encore by Plymouth
Using Ozark Handspun, wrap the Loom and then knot with your plain yarn using the ladder stitch according to the directions that come with the Loom. Repeat twice more.
The three rectangles will be attached by the short ends for the Scarf. Put the right sides together with the loops out on the right side. On the wrong side (where the knotting is visible) join the two pieces together by putting the needle through the X on one side, then the X on the other side and back again. Then move up to the next set of X's. Keeping your tension loose, continue until the two pieces are joined. Add the third piece in the same way.
Cut the remaining yarn into 9" lengths more or less, depending on yarn. For instance if there is a beautiful fluffy section, you may want to cut before or after that section. Divide these pieces in thirds and tie the pieces on irregularly throughout the piece. Untie the knot where you joined the end of the Ozark to the beginning and trim the ends to match the length of the other pieces.
