What you need:
fleece-1/4 of a yard makes one scarf
thick yarn, cut into 12" pieces
If you buy a 1/4 of a yard it the perfect measurement and you won't have to worry about cutting a semi-straight line later. Another tip I have for cutting at home is to ask the fabric store for one of their fabric cardboard rolls to use as a guide. Once you have your fabric the right size cut the selvage (that's the bottom end that usually has wording on it) off the ends.
Now you want to cut slits on each end. They need to be pretty small maybe about 1/8 of an inch and do it all the way across, a pinky width apart each slit. Once this is done on both sides of the scarf you are ready for your yarn.
Take a piece of yarn, fold in half, put the loop through the slit and pull the bottom of the yarn up and through creating a loop knot.That's it, continue that all the way across and on both ends. Now wrap that pretty scarf up for someone special in your life.
