recycled sweater braided scarf

Enter this clever no-sew low-sew scarf made from a recycled sweater — any sweater from your closet or local thrift store will do! Any avid thrift store shopper will tell you that the sweater aisle is jammed full of sweaters that are begging to be repurposed. This project is by Larissa at Just Another Day in Paradise.
