The scraps from the skirt... they went toward another worthy cause - my newest necklace! I used every single piece of that fabric. No waste! Nada!
Follow the directions from V and Co. for knitting with two fingers (video tutorial here), but leave a little bit longer of a tail to begin with - say 7-8 inches.
Knit until your chain is about 10-11 inches long (or however long you want it). I like shorter necklaces, so 11 inches worked for me.
End your chain following the directions in the tutorial making sure to leave a long tail. Mine was about 17 inches long.
Put the longest tail around your neck and adjust the necklace to the length you like.
Tie both tails in a bow right next to the end of your chain. (I added an extra length of fabric to the bow part to fluff it up a bit.) Cut the tails to the desired length.
The knit I used was a really soft cotton/spandex mix which gave me a really floppy bow. If you want the bow more defined, use a thicker/stiffer knit.
