  • Step 1

    First grab some yarn, I like to use two strands, it gives the scarf a little more thickness. If you are using that fluffy thin yarn you are going to want some normal yarn to go with it.

    Continue weaving so there are two loops and lifting loops off so there is one until it starts to look like this then keep going till its the length you want. *It is going to roll in on itself. don't worry that's whats supposed to happen ;)* (I just Henna'd my hand that's why there are leaves on my fingers)

    To tie off the end cut the string about three inches long then slip it through the loops that are on your fingers.

Try using two or three strands of yarn, that should make a thicker scarf

Yes you have to lift each lower loop off each finger but you can do it one at a time. And yes you wrap it around the thumb to start the under and over wrapping again.
