Make the Recycled Ties Yo-Yo Scarf! Free Pattern!

by Beth Cooper

If you are looking for a great way to reuse old neckties, silk shirts, or other soft fabrics, this is the project for you! This is the Recycled Ties Yo-Yo Scarf and it is a scrap user-upper! (Let’s pretend that’s a real word! Ha!) Yo-Yos are always fun to make and this scarf is no exception.

The nice thing about this scarf is that by using soft silky fabrics, you can create a scarf that is perfect for those Spring days that are still chilly. The Yo-Yo Scarf is not too heavy, but sure adds some warmth and comfort.

Yo-yo projects are fun to make and are a great way to keep your hands busy. You’ve probably seen yo-yo quilt projects, but maybe not a yo-yo scarf. The pattern involves using a fabric yo-yo maker, which makes sewing those yo-yos so much easier. Making these little cloth yo-yos is slightly addictive, so beware! Ha!

Download or print the free pattern for the Recycled Ties Yo-Yo Scarf here!

Although, not necessary to make the Yo-Yo Scarf, this Yo-Yo maker does make it easier! You can find this Yo-Yo maker on Missouri Star Quilt Co. or click here. It comes in a variety of sizes, but this particular pattern calls for a size small. However, it’s your scarf and any size you choose, would work.
