Create a reversible parallelogram from your favorite mini skeins, scrap yarn, or both! With this pattern yarn weight, length, and width are all adjustable to best suit your signature style. Why weave in ends when you can wrap them around a sheep or rabbit end minder and enjoy watching them dance along the edge of your project? Just like your favorite fringe or tassels, these adorable additions add drape and movement.
