“So Sari” Scarf Necklace

I started arm knitting this year and really got excited when I found a company to provide me with some recycled ribbon yarn. I arm knit the ribbon into a long infinity scarf.

Well living in Florida, we don’t get to wear scarves too much (too hot) so I started creating a scarf necklace using the sari ribbon.

I combine braiding, twisting, looping together and attach a vintage button clasp. I make the necklace about 30-32″ long so that you can wear it down like a necklace or doubled like a light scarf. I also add a ceramic charm to it.

Hence the name – So Sari Scarf Necklace.

I love bright colors and unique textures that are in silk Indian Sari’s and so I am using recycled material that has been hand torn and then sewed together into ribbons.

This ribbon is made in a fair trade, family operated co-op in India. The process gives Indian women a financial opportunity and has kept over 6,000 lbs of the unused sari material and old sari’s out of the landfills.

    Where do you purchase your ribbon? I live in NC and have no intention of copying your designs.
