I’ve been wanting to make one for awhile so I made a very happy unbirthday scarf for myself too. I chose the colors on the left for my friend. I had already ironed the scarf all nicely for wrapping before I thought to take a picture so I didn’t want to wind it all up! The one that is knotted up is mine. I loved all the fabric combinations and couldn’t decide which I would prefer so my husband picked that one. I’m pleased with his choice.
If you are thinking of making one, I would suggest fairly heavy pinning (I did every 3 or so inches) and this is a great time to use a walking foot. They are not just for quilting! They are great to use when you have slippery material or material that you don’t want shifting. I also used it for the edge-stitching to avoid a wavy edge. Worked like a charm.
