I did however, have a large piece of stretch knit fabric in a nice soft cream color perfect for a Spring scarf. A spring slasher scarf! No word of a lie the entire project - including taking the photos - took less then 5 minutes! Please be polite enough to ignore my horrible pics. I have no patience today! On to the DIY:
Step one: You need a rectangle of knit fabric - like T-shirts are made of. Actually the bottom of a large T-shirt would be perfect for this. The width is entirely up to you. Want a fat scarf? Make your rectangle wide. Want a skinny scarf? Make your rectangle thin. The length should be approximately the length you want the finished project to be. You'll notice that my fabric was not cut with a great deal of care - it doesn't need to be.
|My fabric rectangle was about 10 inches by a meter long(boy growing up metric in an imperial household really messes with a girl!).|
|Even at this point accuracy is not absolutely needed.|
When your long rectangle is all folded up into a little rectangle you are ready for the next step, the slashing!
Step three: Slashing. Using scissors make cuts along one of the folded sides of your small rectangle. Be sure to cut through all the layers. Make your cuts to about the halfway mark.

|I made my cuts about an inch and half apart.|
Step four: Unfold and stretch.

Step five: Wear it!
