The first step is to create a slip knot.

  1. Wrap the yarn around your finger twice
  2. Pull the back piece over the front piece
  3. Then pull the front piece over the back
  4. The slip knot should look like this and the yarn should be easy to pull

    Very cool, can’t wait to try this, thank you for sharing!! I am the type of person that wants to see instant results when making something, this seems to be quite quick in the end result.

    you should look into finger weaving – it also goes fast but makes a thicker scarf. our girls love the craft. you can also do it with the loops for pot holders.
