"Un-Beweavable" Ruffled Scarf

If you are a serger owner, I would like to recommend the book:
Serger Essentials by Gail Patrice Yellen.
This book includes advice on threading, tension, differential feed, and needles
relevant to all models.
It also give tips for using decorative threads and techniques
 - and -
it includes instructions for 5 simple projects
This lightweight knit scarf is one of those 5 projects.
It is also the project for my February 28 Baby Lock Serger Class
at both Wimmer's locations:  Layton and Ogden
I had this very, very (almost sheer) lightweight spandex knit on hand,
so I decided to give it a try.
The instructions call for t-shirt weight knit fabric.
I'm actually quite pleased with the scarf.

The edges are finished with a rolled hem
and serger chains are woven into the slits that are cut into the scarf,
using a skip cut rotary cutter blade.

Then beads are tied onto the ends of the serger chains.

If you are in the local area, head to Wimmer's and sign up for the class.
I would be pleased to meet you in person.

Thank you for visiting.
