At Dollar Store Crafts, we like to take seemingly ordinary objects and transform them into different things. Take this knit orange and red scarf for example. It’s constructed as a tube, so if you cut the seams at the ends off, you have a long tube of knit fabric. We’ve done some very successful crafts with deconstructed scarves, like using a scarf as sleeves on a reconned baby hoodie, or turning scarves into baby legwarmers.
I had half a scarf left after a project, and I thought I could quickly snip them into fingerless gloves (also called “ninja mitts” by Leethal, who I learned this technique from). Turns out you can make fingerless gloves from knit scarves, but they don’t last long, as the knit unravels pretty quickly under stress.
