Transcripts

1. Introduction: 2. Hello & welcome!: how their money was. Kim Miller and I'm a graphic designer by day in a crush. A addict at night. I am the owner of Mary More Designs, which is my graphic design business in 1954 which is my cruciate business. I have been crushing now for about seven years, and I am very much addicted to making the crocodile scarves. This is one of them here. This happens to be one that I just finished up, and it's Ah, Europe. It's got a little bit of glitter to it. I want to say it's a red yarn by Red Heart, but I'm not 100% sure so but I'll figure it out and let you know. Anyway, uh, this is what we're gonna do today. If you are a complete beginner, I recommend learning basic stitches like chaining single core Shea. And most importantly, for this pattern, a double Cochet. You're going to be using the double course shape about 99% of the time in this pattern. Eso it definitely make sure that you're comfortable with that stitch, but I'm always here to help you to. So if you have questions, please let me know, Uh, in the next video, we're gonna take a look at the materials and I won't go through each of them with you. There's nothing too fancy here. It's all basic materials. So I'll meet you in the next video. We'll get started. 3. Materials needed: Hi there. And welcome back in this video, I'm going to go through with you everything that you're gonna need to create the crocodile scarf. I'm gonna talk first about the yarn and obviously you want something a little bit on the center side. Eso medium weight yarn is gonna work. Perfect. So this right here is my favorite yarn to use for this project. The crocodile scarf one because it lays really nice and flat onto It's really just it's just easy to work with. Ah, and it's really soft. So if you can get your hands on some of this I suggest using this. Ah, the amount that you're gonna need for this project depends if I just use one skein of yarn . I can get by with a shorter scarf which fits comfortably around your neck. With this particular yarn, one skin will be just fine, But to make it a little bit longer, you could use two or even three. So it's up to you. How long or how short you want this to be next up is, uh, anything like this. So this is the Burnett satin again. Look for something that is soft, that is probably Ah, the most important thing that you want to look for. This is Justin. Acrylic yarn. Just as the Karen simply soft is at least I believe that it is. And yes, it is. Uh, but again, look for the softness because this isn't tighter. Ah stitched project. It tends to be really Ah, little bit tight around the neck. So the the part that hits the neck is where you might feel it. So I wrote highly suggest something soft. Now, this one here is about the same the same size eyes, the Karen simply soft. Ah, but I do have one here that I have used before. And this is the lion brand Vannes choice. This is definitely a little bit thicker again. It's 100% acrylic, but it is not a soft is the other two I just showed you. And you're going to see a difference too. If you're crushing with this here in the amount of stitches that you want to put in on, you'll see what I'm talking about when we get into the project. But I definitely would not go any thicker than than this here, so ok, next up is the hooks. Now, if you're going to be doing maybe, like the Karen simply soft I just work with the basic your h r five millimeter hook. Anything smaller? You could obviously go down a size in your hook Or if you wanted to go up in this inside. You can always do that. I have crow shade. This is the Jay Hook. So this is a six millimeter. I have Christian aid with this hook and this yarn, and it turned out just fine. But normally what I use is just the five millimeter and it's perfect. Ah, but again, if you wanted to even go smaller than this, eso maybe like a sock sock yarn. But you could do that as well. You just have to add more stitches and you'll see what I mean again when we get started. So that's the yard and the hooks. This is a very forgiving project. Ah, see, you could really try everything out and see what you like best. My recommendation is the H hook and the Karen simply soft. Okay, so next up, you're going to need a yarn needle. Be simple, awesome fabric glue for the end next up stitch markers. And I do not like the regular stitch markers. So I use these little hair things, especially with this yarn. For some reason, when I put the stitch markers in between the stitches, it kind of polls on the yard and they just It just kind of unravels the yard, and I don't like it. So this here works perfectly for me. I can just put it right on or through the stitch. And I don't have any problems with it unraveling or pulling it. So these air just hair, obviously little hair clips. Eso. Anyway, that is it. That's all you need for this project. Next video. We're gonna go ahead and we're going to get started, so I will see you there. 4. Pattern instructions / final touches: All right, guys. Welcome back. Uh, we're gonna get started. And first of all we're gonna do is we're just gonna measure out behind, like, 6 to 8 inches for our tail and that will make a slip knot. So go ahead and do that. And once you've got your slip not ready, go ahead and chain six. So one to three for five in six. Okay? So 123456 When you have your six, just come right back to your first chain and slip stitch right into that, forming a circle so you can see now we have a circle, and we're gonna go ahead and change. Three. This chain three will count is our first double Cochet. So once you have your three, this is where you want to decide if you're using a thicker yarn. Well, you either want to dio thicker or thinner, So if you're using a thicker yarn, you're gonna want to do more of the double cross shays here in this step. If you're using something thinner or like this here, which is the Karen simply soft. I usually do six. So five works just as well. If you're using something thicker. Definitely. Try something like four. So we're gonna do. Is this council's one? Like I said, I normally do six, But I'm gonna do five for time purposes. So go ahead and finish up by double crashing. Four more or five, depending on your yarn. So it's too three. We're going right through this circle. So we're going right into so you can see here. I'm yearning over. I'm coming right into the circle and finishing up my double Cochet here. So that's 1234 And I need one more, and then you're gonna go ahead and chain one. So this is the first side of our crocodile stitch. We chained one. We're gonna continue on with five or six hopes to make it my urine here together. So depending on how many stitches you're gonna have on either side of your stitch your crocodile stitch Ah, you're gonna go ahead and do that money? No. So I'll do another five one to clips to three for and five. Okay, So once you have your both your sides done, go ahead and just kind of set it down on Take a look at it. This right here. Your tail. I recommend not pulling this and not tightening this unless you know, you do not want to add a button at the end. If you do want to add a button, go ahead. And, um, leave it open like this because you never know what size but you're gonna need. And you're gonna want the stretch here. So if it's if it's way too big and go ahead and tighten it just a touch just to make it look a little bit better. But you still want this Give in here. I'm gonna show you. Ah, scarf that I recently made Ah, and just not thinking. I tighten this up all the way, and then I went to put my button in, and it doesn't not fit, so Ah, there's always fixes, of course, but I'm just trying to make your life a little bit simpler. So Okay, once you're done with this, I'm gonna go ahead and I'm going to cut my tail short because I don't want to interfering with, uh, your view. So when it chopped it off a little bit, and then I might just go ahead and tighten it up a bit. Okay. So once we have our first crocodile stitch, we need to increase. So we need a stitch here, and we need a stitch here, so our next round or next row is gonna be our posts. So from now on, what I want to call our pope are double Crow. Shays in this row are gonna be considered our posts. So to start that, we're gonna go ahead, and once again, we're gonna change three. So one, 23 and then we're gonna right away. We are over. And then right in between these last two double Chris Shays that were on our side of this ditch. We're in a double car share right in between those two stitches. So now you have your two posts. So here's one post here is the other. After you're done with this, post these posts. Excuse me. You're gonna chain one next up, you're gonna come into the center of your stitch, and we're gonna double cruciate twice in this as well. So go ahead and make your posts here in here and then chain one. So now you can see that we have to post here to here and then We need to add two more on the end here because we need another stitch on this end. So again, we're going to do the same thing that we did. And we're gonna yarn over and that on this end, we're gonna change, or we're gonna stitch right in between the first chain three and then the second, um, double crow shay here. So we're not going into any stitches or change. We're going right in between the two full stitches themselves. So if you can see where I'm going here, going right through the center of the two stitches and I'm gonna finish up my double Cochet , go ahead in double Kirsch A one more time and then you can see now what? We're what's going on. Take a look here. We have two posts here, here and here. So now this is done. We're ready. This is gonna be our increased row, so we'll have to crocodile stitches on this next road we're gonna dio is Chain three once again. So one, 23 yarn over. And then this first set of post here again, we're gonna go right through the center. There are no in. No, Uh all the way through this pattern. You will not be going through the stitches themselves. So you'll be going in between two of the stitches instead of through, like a bum, like a chain or the actual stitch. So anyway, I just want to let you know that, uh okay, so we're gonna do the first side of the first stitch of the second row. So you are in over, coming in between the two posts, go ahead and double Crow Shea. And now we have two that are right around this post. So we're actually going crushing these around the posts. Barack finished up by doing another three. So it's 123 four And here is five. Okay, so after you're done with your five or six, depending on what you're doing, if you're using a really thick yarn, you might want to only do four. So after you're done with these, go ahead and chain One and now we're gonna do is we're going to just flip our work. So again you can see how I just did that. I'm just flipping it right over so yarn over, and then you want to come into this other post. But you don't want to come in right through this way. If we go in this way, you'll see here. If I go this way, what will happen? I'll just do a couple stitches here. You'll see. Okay. So if this is our lefts are right side, you'll see here, Run. It's gonna want to lay on its over on itself or on the other side. We don't want that. We want this totally flat this way, and that's not gonna work this way. So what we need to dio is yarn over, and then we need to come up and over this post and then come back under and through it. So are right here the end, coming up over and then under it right between the two again. Then go ahead and start your stitches once again. So finish up your five or your for your six. Ah, And then if you give us a little tug, you can kind of see how we're working with this on where you're going with your hook. Uh, so I'm just coming right into here. That's too three for this is five Chain one, and then flip it. You can see now that it's laying flat like we want it so we can move on and we want to not Cruciate in this set here. We're gonna skip this. We're gonna move on to this set here. We're gonna yarn over. Come right into this first post right underneath it. You're in over and finish up your double Cochet. So that's one to three for and five Chain one. Make sure to chain one and then turn. So here is Harry. I'm done. So here's my first stitch where we just were and that if I turn my work here, you can see the other post is sitting here. So go ahead and kind of flip this up to make it easier to work with. You're in over, and then you can kind of fold your work back. So you're just kind of looking at it like this. So instead of it, like being like this, you can fold it right over yarn over and then come right up and over. And then through that post again, I'll show you that one more time. So here I am done with this one. I am flipping over. I'm kind of fooled in my work back so I can see that last post going to yard over. Bring my hook over and through this last post that's one to and then chain one. So go ahead and lay your workout. If the tale is in your way, go ahead and tuck it back. Just out of your way here. And then that's it. That's your increase. Ah, and the next one, we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna add another increase on and then before you Really, once you really get into this, you can decide. Um, how why do you want this? You can go, is what is you want or you can make it a little bit thinner. Eso Normally, what I do is I work in four and three. So I have ah, pattern of four crocodile stitches and then three and then for the three So and that's what I must show you here. You'll get the idea of how to increase and decrease. So this lays nice and flat, and then it looks nice and good on the edges. So OK, so after your chain one again, we're gonna increase. So we want to make sure that we have posts here in here. So starting on our next row, we're gonna go ahead. And since we chained one, we're gonna go ahead and change three. So just do a total of three. Then again right through those two posts. Double Cochet making your second post and then chain one again. We need to yearn over, come into in between the previous Rose crocodile stitch. So we want one right in between here. So you are in over right in between the middle of the stitch change our double Cochet one and then your next double crow Shea and then chain one yarn over. Okay, so I want to point this out really quick, because this is kind of important if you're going through the next post. So here is the post from the previous row on. These are ones that we did not crush A into There were the ones that we skipped. So when you go through this, So you're just going through the V the V stitch that we have here? You're gonna come right through the center of it. So now you're going to see that there are two different layers. Make sure that you're going through both of them and that you're crashing over the top of both. Ah, so if you go in, let's say just through one layer, you're gonna leave this extra layer hanging. Ah, and it's not Ah, huge deal. But it helps in making it lay flat, so you can see right here that it's kind of like a stuck up a little bit when we crow shape over that were kind of flattening it. And this makes a pretty big difference in the way it lays. So go ahead and turn over. Make sure coming through both of those layers and do your posts. So it was one, and that's to chain one. Moving on to the next. Breath occurs Shea into the last stitches center. So yarn over right through the center and your two posts. Perfect. Chain one. Okay, so now we have a new increase here, and then we're gonna have a skipped, skipped post here. This will be a a stitch, a skip, and we still need to do post on the end of this one. So again, we're gonna come over the we're gonna yarn over and then come through the previous Chain three, and then the first double Cochet. And right in the center of those two is where you're gonna make your two posts. Good. No, we're going to start the next Rose Stitch. So we want a change 3123 yard over and then coming right through this first post. Come right down and into this So you can see right in the middle of the two chains or the two posts, and I'm starting my double. Chris Shays in here. It's three, four and five, Chain one. I just wanted to point this out as well. You can see Know that I am working on the back for part of this eso what we're gonna do. After we do this part of the stitch, we're gonna flip it. And now we're at the front of the peace and it gets a little bit easier once I get going here and you can see a little bit better. But now that I have a little bit more to work with, I'm hoping that this is a lot easier if you just see. So once you flip it over and you're ready to start the other side of the first crocodile stitch for this row. Go ahead and yarn over. Then take your hook in your yarn and come over to this side again. I will make sure your your knowing you know that you're not just to go right through the front of it or the side of it. This side of it come through. So pick your yard up and over, come over and then under, grab your yarn and pull it through. And then start your stitches once more. Once you do that, you have a little bit more here to hold on to. And it's not so little you can see better. Uh, and like I said, give it a little bit of a tug. Uh, and then you'll be able to see where you're crashing into. So again, finish up your stitches. Okay, then. Chain One and then that's it. So you have Ah, we're gonna have 12 and three. So again, we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna skip the next set of posts, so these will be skipped and we'll come right into the second set. But the first post, we're coming right under. We're doing a double car. Shea five times, right over the same post. It's four five, Chain One. Now you can see where it's kind of all balled up, so it it looks like a mess. But what you're gonna do is holding on just a ziff. You were still crashing. Just flip it just like this. So now, once you kind of flatten it out and you can always do that to issue becoming and flatten it out because it does get confusing in the beginning. Eso go ahead. If you get confused to stop, take a look at it, flatten it out, see where you're at. And I can see now that I've finished up with the second us stitch. But I need to start here. So what I'm gonna do is pick it up again and kind of fold your work if it helps you, so you can kind of fold it to see where you're at. I know that this is the next ah stitch that I need to go into. But instead of going right through it this way, I know I need to come over to the other side because I want my stitches toe lay flat this way. So coming over in under and then right through the center. Go ahead and start your double. Kerr. She's again. And then again, just kind of give it a little bit of tug to see where the hole is. So you know where to crow Shea into. It's too three for If I don't forget to chain one, flatten it out again. Take a look. See how everything looks good. And next we're gonna finish up the end of this row. So we're gonna against get this next set of stitches or posts You aren't over. Find the first post. Come right through it. We're coming right through the post, and we're in a yarn over and finish up our double Chris Shays. So it's one. So if you if it gets a little bit close, you're not sure, just kind of so pull it apart so you can see where again where your current crashing into. That's too three four in five between one. Turn your work. That's why. Chain one turning your in over. Flip this up so you can see it. So here is our last post right here. I'm gonna come up and over right through it. and then finish up our double car. Shay's one to three for and then five. Good. So I'm gonna show you what this looks like again flipping it over. If yours looks like this perfect, or we're gonna move on, and once again we're gonna increase. So like I said, we're going to do three and four, so we need to add Ah, chain here, Uh, a stitch here in a stitch here. But first we need to do our posts. So let's do that right now. Pick up your yarn once again. Chain three. So one, two and three again. We're coming through the last two. Ah, Double Crow Shayes on the last stitch from a previous row running our double cross share Right into that to create our second post. And we're gonna chain one. Next up is the second post. Someone come right into the middle of the stitch. So right through here and due to double car Shay's chain one next post, remember to come through both layers were coming right in between the two stitches right through the V stitch in the back. Where are posts since one to chain one again in the middle of the Centre Stitch one to chain one. And then again in the middle of the two stitches again, right through the V stitch or the posts and then through the middle of the last stitch. Okay, Next, we need to create the last posts for this stitch here. So we're gonna yard over once again. We're going right in between the last chain three in the first are the first chain three in the second double. Cochet. So coming right through here, create a post two posts, and then we're going to start our next rose stitches. So chain 3123 Here in over. We're gonna come right in between or right over that last post that we just made. So coming right over and into through the two posts, so you can see we're actually crashing right over this first post. So that's two three, five. Chain one. Turn your work. You're in over. Find your second post, come over the post and then under it, make your first double crash. A. We can move this. You can see it and then finish up your double crow Shay's Chain one. Flip this over so you can see it. I recommend when you're first doing this and starting out even when you're more comfortable with it. Because I still make mistakes. Uh, coming back after each row and after each crocodile stitch one you want to come back after return is over so you can see it come back after these rows here where you make your posts because there's a lot of times that I'll just be going so quick that I only make one post. So if you get to the end here and you've only got one post, you've got to come back and redo it all because you have to have the two posts. So, uh, anyway, all right, so next up, we're going Teoh, create our next stitch here. So, as you can see, we're starting to form a pattern. And it's just a 234 and it's gonna end up being 3434 or 45 Whatever you want to do. If you want to increase more, that's perfectly fine. But I'm just gonna do three and four. This is what I normally do when I create this scarf. So go ahead and keep on moving. Skip, Skip this next set Crush A into the one after that. So we're gonna come right under here right under this first post and do are five or six double Chris Shays. Okay, Chain one, flip your work over and find that other post. So come over and under this and then start your double crow Shay's again. I just kind of pull at it just so I can see where I'm going. And I fold my work kind of in half. That's three for five. Chain one again. Just double check because you never know where you might have, uh, mess up because there's times where again I'll not be paying attention like it should have . And I'm crushing right next to the one I just did. So again, pay attention until you're really comfortable with this. So change arguing over, come back into when we want to skip this, remember? And then this one here we're gonna work into, so come right under and start your stitches to three or five. And then chain one, turn your work and find that next post which is right here gonna come up over and then under the post, grab your yearn pull it through and start your double crow Shay's Chain one again. I'm just gonna take a quick look. Flatten it out. See how it's coming along on. It looks really good. So I'm gonna move on to a last stitch in this row. So again, skip this next set, Move on to the last, find the next post commemorate under it and start your stitches. Chain one turn and work over. You can fold this up so you can see your last ah, stitch or your last post here. So you're in over, come up and over and through this, and then it's finished up your five or six stitches or for Okay, so here is Are our pattern starting to emerge? And you can see the four in the three next up. We're gonna do a decrease. So I'm gonna show you how to do that. And obviously that means we're gonna have three stitches instead of four. But we want to make sure that these edges look nice and finished, so I'm gonna show you how to do that. And it's really simple. So Ah, once you're done with this last, uh, stitch here in the end go ahead and chain one and then immediately just start your post as you normally would. So to finish this off or just change chaining one and then starting our posts like we did in the previous rose. So it's to chain one into the next Chain one. Okay, so once you are done, uh, uptil here. So you have over posts. We finished it off, then we have a post going on till here. So what we need now is to finish this off. So Ah, the reason I do this number one is because if we don't finish this off here, it will start to, like, flip up as you're wearing it, and it just doesn't look good. So to finish it off again, it's very simple. You just have to come in between the two posts again like we were if we were making our post, but instead just slip stitch right into that. So we're kind of conducting it and keeping it all together, but we're just kind of finishing. Finishing it off is well, so now you can see that this looks pretty good. It's a nice and finished, and we're ready to start and our next stitches were gonna be here, here and here. Okay, so now, once you have your Deek, are your decrease ready? Everything looks good. We're gonna go ahead or to start all the way over here. So in order for us to get over here Ah, we need to chain one or chain to, depending on what you think. When you're doing this. If you feel like two is good, go ahead. And chain too. That's normally what I do is change, too. And it usually gets me right over to this, uh, this next post and it doesn't fold up on me. So go ahead. And it hopes to your chain, too. And we're skipping all of this here. We're gonna go ahead and come right over the second post for this first post. We're gonna go ahead and double Cochet ended this five or six times. So let's three, four, five, chain one. Turn your work. You're in over. Find your next post, come up over and under and start your chains or your double Chris Shays again. Okay, So there's five. We want to make sure we chain one. Come back, flatten it out, take a look at it. See how it's coming along, and then move on. We're gonna skip this index set. Move on to this one again . We're gonna skip the next set and come into this post here. The set of posts. Chain one, turn your work. So this is our last stitch for this, uh, decrease. And that's where it starts to look really cool. Four five. Chain one, come back. Kind of flatten it out. Take a look at your work. It's looking good. And now we want to make sure that we attach it to this as well. So go ahead and just slip stitch where we would normally come in through RV stitch or posts . Go ahead and come right through the middle of that. And again. Ah, Slip Stitch here. Okay, so now we need to start right away on our next set of post. So go ahead and change. 3123 And the reason we're doing this is because you can see here because we're going from 4 to 3. Her next row will be ah, four. So we need to make sure that we have posts here and post here, so go ahead and change. Three. Turn your work you're in over. And then one more double car share right in between the two previous rose posts. And there is your next set, a post chain one, and then come right into the next stitches center into your post. Now, keep going to finish up this row with your posts. Okay, so we're at the last stitch. So again, if you're having trouble seeing where you should go because it might get a little confusing here at the end. But you'll see that there's looks like there's three double crow shays here, which there is not, but it might get confusing. The first to that you're going to run into are, in fact, the post. So you're going to actually double Cochet your posts right through these. So you can see here there's 12 and then this may look like another post to you. This is actually where we slip stitch through to come up and around this first to ah, posts are actually the actual post. So go ahead and do your post right through those. So one, two. And now that we have Oliver Post made for our increase and you can always come back and check again. Make sure you have to To To. And it all looks good. So you know, you got a stitch here, Here, here and here. We're good to go. So go ahead and change three. And start your five or six or possibly four. Double Kirsch A's right into your post. So it's 12 three, four, five. Chain one to flip your work over. Find your next post, which is right here you are in over. Come up over and then under that post, pull your yarn through and start your double koshis again. Chain one, Flip this over. Just see how it's laying. And it's looking really good. So I'm gonna move on and I'm gonna finish up this row, and I'm gonna go through one more time. Ah, decrease with you. Okay, I'm back. And I'm at the end of my increased row, which is the four, and I want to go back to three. So what I'm gonna dio again is chain one at the end here and then move right into my post for the next row. So we aren't over. Come into the next stitches center and do my two posts. Chain one right in between the two posts right through RV stitch or a previous rose posts and create our post here. You're gonna start to see a really cool pattern start to come around on the back to, and this is actually gonna help you see where your V stitches or your poster at here and then Royer stitches are so you can see here. I've got a stitch here post here that we did not go into a stitch post stitch. So even if you're working on the backside, even kind of tell where you're at. Okay, so now I'm at the end, and I have not gone into this last stitch here because we're gonna shut this. We're gonna close this off here. We want to end it. You can see here that we have a nice finished look here, and we want to do the same here because we're actually going to decrease so you can see that we did. We're gonna have 12 and three here. We will not have another stitch on the end. So go ahead and just come right through the center of these two posts. Once again, You're gonna slip stitch, chain one or chain to, Depending on whatever you feel comfortable with, you're in over. And then once again start, you're crashing once again with the stitches. So we're gonna do three in this row, and that will increase again in the next. Okay, so here we have our three, and that looks really good. We're gonna go ahead and finish this off on the end. So go ahead and remember to come. You might be tempted to come into this end here where we have the, uh the end that we finished off. But go ahead and come through the 1st 2 Ah, here and just to slip stitch. And then this way you'll know. Right after you do the slip stitch, you're going to immediately chain three because we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna turn our work. We're gonna create arse posts for our next increase. So here is our increase, and you're gonna chain one. And obviously what we're gonna do is we're gonna go ahead and go right across here with our increase. I'm not gonna go any further. I think that you guys got the kind of the idea of how to do it. I'm gonna show you how to finish it off again. This is extremely simple. There's nothing to it. Once you're done and we're gonna say that we're done right here. So this would be our ending. Go ahead and pull up some yard. Ah, and you can end however you want. If you want to end on three, if you want to end on for it does not matter. It's up to you how you want to end it. So go ahead and pull up a pretty good piece of yarn here and just cut it. And then we're going Teoh, just thread this through. So what I like to do is, uh this is why I have the fabric glue. I use this to kind of hold things together again. I mean, it just kind of just we've at Harvard. You normally would. What's nice about these stitches, that is, that you can come right in here and we've right through it. But first, what I do is I just kind of come around one or two, and I just create, um, a little nut. So I make a nut lightly. Nothing too tight. and then I'll come back through right into these stitches down here, so I'll just kind of leave it here through this one. Then maybe here and then back up through the other side and then I'll cut it clip pretty close, and then I'll just go ahead and put a very small amount of glue right underneath here. So this is, uh, stays and it doesn't unravel, especially when it's washed. Um, and that's another thing I wanted to mention with washing these, you can put them in the washer on delicate. I recommend cold water. Just follow your yarns instructions to on that. But with these, I definitely would not put these in the dryer. What I do wash them. I Most of the time I just hand wash these with a light lights open, nothing to, um, too expensive. And then I just kind of ring it out a rule it in a towel on, Let it air dry. So but normally, before they go out or I shipped them out, I will wash them, and I've used a little bit of fabric softener and just kind of makes it smell good on it. Softens it up just a little bit more. So again, I just would not throw these in the dryer, So OK, so that is finishing it. And that is what it's gonna look like. I'll show you again the finished product. Okay, so this is what the finished one would look like Here is one here that I did. And this is what I was talking about. Where I created the the this beginning stitch Too small. And I tugged on this a little too hard. The button. Obviously, if you have a small enough button, it would be perfect. But the buttons that I picked for this, uh oh, that I had for this were way too big for the shrunken hole that I created. So ah, what you can do in that case, No worries. You can just go on to the next stitch and you can see how much of a stretch there is there . And there really isn't here, So you can just go ahead and, uh, use this next one is your button hole. So again, this is very easy to dio for the buttons. Just ah, measured up against your own neck. I'll go ahead and I'll wrap this around my neck and kind of put my little, uh, pins or my little stitch markers that I have on. I just put him right on the the one that I want to use. So if I wrap this around my neck and I kind of pinpoint where I want it and I know where I wanted to lay, I'll know that I want this kind of around right here, so I'll just kind of pin that there. So when I come back after looking at it, I know where to attach my buttons so you can use normal stitch markers if you want. I just know that when I put him through here and I kind of wrap him through, they seem to get stuck in kind of unravel the yard, and I didn't like it, so I think I just got these. I don't even remember where I got them, but they're super inexpensive and they're just for your hair. But they work a lot better for me anyway, So this is one of them, and this is this is one skein of yarn, and this is perfect for me. Even I'm a little bit heavier I guess I could say my neck isn't too tiny. Uh, but this fits my neck perfectly fine, and it's very comfortable. So I did create another one that's a bit smaller, and this one is for, ah, child or somebody with a very small and petite neck Eso This one again is the chunkier yarn , and you can see how it kind of just a little more stiff. But again, I did five stitches on each side. So if you were the lesson that a bit that even might help is well, but I couldn't pass this year yarn up because it's glittery. And then the closure that I used is actually a, uh, pendant. So it's from the jewelry department. I think it one of the craft stores on. I just really liked it. So it went on here, uh, and it works really good at holding it shot. So that's another one. And then the other one that I have here, uh, is again the same Glittery are in just a different color on this. I want to just point out, too, that if you are, uh, going to go crazy with buttons like I did, uh this one here I is. Nice. Is this looks I would not recommend it because it is a pain toe button and unbutton. So if you want something nice and easy, I recommend getting just a plain round button or something smooth anyway. But this seems to be getting caught really bad on the yard, and it's kind of tearing it apart. So while it looks nice, your customer or whoever giving it to might find it frustrating. But anyway, it still is very pretty. So those are the three that I have made currently I did want to go over really quick to eso some of the buttons and clasps that I use on their mostly just buttons. Honestly. But these air a few, you can use anything. Like I said, uh, the stitches here are pretty pretty wide. So you can pretty much get I wouldn't go too far. I wouldn't even go. I mean, this might be a bit big, but anything like this is pretty good size, and I'll go right through. Same with ease. But then you've got something like this, and this is a clasp that I bought as well. Uh, this I might have trouble getting through. So I just want Oh, let you know that you can use other things than, um then buttons and I'm gonna show you a couple more. Right now, this is a different style scarf. This is color pooling, and I keep these together just with a pin. So it's just a really big pin from the craft store. And then I bought a pendant of the jewelry department that really went pretty good with this, I thought, and I just attached it like that and you can put it on like this, and this also can come right off the head. It doesn't even have to be unp in or anything like that. It's just more of a decorative touch, and you can do the same thing with these. So if you wanted to add just a pin with a decorative piece on that, these will come right off the head as well. They don't have to be unbuttoned our own pin to come off. So this is another one. It's just the same style scarf, but it has just plain pin again. These are just, uh I think I got these at Happy Lobby and they're pretty inexpensive. So anyway, those are just a few different ways of closing up a scarf. You don't even have to close it. So if you made your crocodile scarf really long, obviously it would be just like a basic scarf and you could just wrap it around your neck. I've done a few of those toe where I think I used probably think was five skins of yard on . They were pretty big because you will go through quite a bit of the armed course saying these so anyway, those are just some ideas. You are welcome to try them out and see how they work. Go ahead and start projects. If you have questions, please let me know. I am here to help. And if you want, just go ahead and upload a photo of your finished product and I can't wait to see them. So thank you for taking the class. And I will see you in the next one. Thanks. Bye.
