Joining

Lay your squares out into the pattern that you’d like and join them together. I like using a nice whip stitch join and sew my squares together, but there are a myriad of ways to join them together!

The Tassels

With the remaining yarn, cut multiple strands of yarn that are 10 inches long. At the ends of each side of the scarf, connect your tassels (I use 3 strands of yarn) using a larks head knot in the 5 openings of each side
