Joining Bobbles to Scarf
Beg with one group of yarn tails on Scarf. You will be making a cord with every other yarn tail in this group, for a total of 12 cords.
For each cord, hold one yarn tail. Note that the strand of yarn is made of 4 thinner strands (plies) of yarn. Carefully untwist the strand so that you can work with just one of the thinner strands.
Twist this one strand tightly in a clockwise direction, so that it begins to kink. Keeping the twisted strand taut, fold the strand in half, allowing it to twist around itself to make a cord.
Draw one end of the cord through one contrast color Bobble and knot to secure.
Repeat to make 12 cords, each with an attached contrast color Bobble, in each of the 4 groups of yarn tails.
Weave in all rem yarn tails.
