Wrap your presents up nice and cosy with this DIY mini scarf ribbon tutorial! This is a great one-night project for leftover wool, and it adds a nice personal touch to your gifts.
If your kids are interested in knitting, this is a good place to start, since it's super quick and simple!
- About 10 yards chunky wool (I used Misty Alpaca in Pewter)
- US size 19 knitting needles
Step 1: Cast on five stitches.
Step 2: Knit straight through until your mini scarf is long enough to wrap around your gift, with about three inches extra at each end.
Step 3: Cast off.
Step 4: Cut a four-inch piece of the remaining wool.
Step 5: Fold the piece of wool in half.
Step 6: Push the looped end through the first stitch at one end of your knitted ribbon.
Step 7: Slip the open end through the looped end and pull to secure.
Step 8: Repeat steps 4–7 with nine additional pieces of wool, so you have five two-pronged tassel pieces on each side.
Step 9: If the tassel ends are uneven, trim them so they're the same length.
Step 10: Wrap your mini scarf ribbon around your gift like you would a normal ribbon.
