I used a woven homespun for the base, and sewed a LOT of 1-inch batik strips - 86 I think - on to both sides of the base fabric, 1 inch apart on each side. Then I frayed each side by cutting in an inch, 1/4 inch apart on both sides. Then I wet the scarf and tossed it in the dryer with a dry towel. While it was not a difficult project, it involved a lot of sewing. I'm happy with it.
And here is a portion of my Figgy Pudding project, in progress. More to come later on that.
Lastly, my Day 3 recipe smells wonderful, it is cooking while I blog. All I will say is, it involves caramelized onions. YUM.
