The girls at PHAB (physical health, art, and beauty) learned how to make scrunchy scarves last week, using special wool to speed up the process.

“This method is faster than regular knitting,” said volunteer instructor Bev Tybring. “But you still won’t get it all done today.”

The wool the girls used was actually a mesh, meaning that it could be pulled apart and expanded to make a fluffy, scrunchy scarf in a fraction of the time it would take to knit something similar using regular materials.
