How to Make an Infinity Scarf

Infinity scarves are a great accessory that can be worn with any look and, depending on on the fabric, worn in all seasons.  Making an infinity scarf is a great beginner project and can be finished up in no time at all.  We used a lightweight stretch jersey blend but other fabrics can also be used.  We envision a soft flannel for a winter version and a light cotton print for warmer months.  

You will need:
Fabric – our piece measured 2 yards x 22” (180cm x 80 cm)
Coordinating thread
Pins
Scissors
Sewing needle

Our fabric measured 22 inches wide (80 cm) because we wanted the end result to be a fuller scarf.  To get an idea of how full your scarf will be, wrap it around your neck and adjust the width and length to suit your needs.

Fold your fabric in half lengthwise with the right sides together and pin the edges together.

Sew along the seam – we used a ½” (1.5 cm) seam allowance. Remember to backstitch at the beginning and end of the seam.

Turn the fabric: Put one arm through the entire length of the tube you just made.  Pull the bottom of the fabric tube up through the bottom of the opening and match up both ends.

Make sure to align the seams.  The right side of the fabric will be touching.

Pin the edge.  If you’re adding a folded label, pin the label into the seam.

Stitch around the tube, leaving a 3”  (7.5 cm) gap.  Remember to backstitch to secure the stitch at the beginning and end.  Using the 3” (7.5 cm) gap, turn the scarf right side out.

Tuck the unfinished edges in at the 3” (7.5 cm) opening and hand stitch the opening closed using a ladder stitch
