Here is one of my yard gargoyles modeling my scrappy un-spun and re-spun scarf.
This is how I did it.

    Step 1

    I used a ball of Caron Simply Soft Quick in black and a scrap of yarn about 8 inches. I untwisted the black yarn a bit (it is a thick 2-ply yarn) and slipped one end of the scrap green yarn between the two plies of the black yarn. I then proceeded to untwist the black yarn the length of the green scrap. I then held the two together and let the black yarn re-twist back up enveloping the green yarn in the twist. I then threaded the second end of the yarn in between the two black strands to secure it further.

    I think this would make a fun gift ball of yarn to give someone. They wouldn't know what was inside the outer layers.

    I was thinking about trying this technique next with just one color family of scraps.

    And now if it would only get cold enough here in SoCal so that I could wear my scarf instead of my yard gargoyle!

    So this is my trick that is actually a neat trick!

    Happy Halloween to all ya'll.

that really is neat idea, and looks great.

That must be really tedious to wrap all those scraps within whole length of yarn required to make a scarf...but it turned out really well! :-)
