  • Threads, a book, scissors, a hook



If the shawl is already made and the finalStroke in the form of brushes, then this will require threads of the same texture and color scale. If the scarf is connected from a yarn of several colors, then for the brushes you can use the same thread.


Before you do yourself brushes, you need to cutBillets, which will be quite a large number. When manufacturing, take into account their length, so when calculating this line is taken, which corresponds to twice the length of the brush. For example, the chosen length of the brush is 15 cm, therefore, you need to make 30 cm long pieces. Also, you need to consider how "fluffy" each brush is, and, based on this, calculate the number of cut preforms. For example, the brush will contain 10 threads, therefore, it requires 5 blanks to make it.
