The Kindness of Strangers Scarf Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
I was driving in downtown Seattle to do some Christmas shopping. At a stop signal, I saw a woman with her daughter moving toward a homeless woman and giving her a scarf along with a pair of socks. This very simple gesture was so touching! Knitting is a passion, especially scarves because they are easy and fast, so I thought to do the same. I remembered having a box of leftover yarn that I had purchased a long time ago when my kids were small. So I came up with a summer project: making as many scarves as I can for adults and children. Then in winter I plan to give them away to people in need. To add a touch of fun on the scarves, I used some of my leftover beads for adornment. It doesn't matter which ones; beads are always beautiful to look at.
Use your own handmade scarves or store bought scarves to embellish. We used glazed porcelain square and tube beads and antique silver large hole spacers and beads. You can use any bead as long as the hole is large enough to slide onto the fringe.
There is only one simple step to this easy project. Slide a bead onto the fringe and knot to secure it. Use as many or few as you like to decorate the fringe.
