Stay warm and stylish this season with a scarf project that takes less than an hour to sew, but looks like it took a long time to knit. Choose a chunky or metallic sweater-knit fabric to complete the effect. One you see how it works, you can adjust the scarf’s dimensions to make super-long, thick, or skinny ones to suit your style.
- Approximately 1 yard of sweater-knit fabric
- Matching thread
- Hand-sewing needle
Cut one 31″-wide by 41″-long piece of sweater-knit fabric with the grain running along the 31″-wide edge.
Fold the fabric in half with the longer edges aligned and right sides together.
Sew the long edges together with a 1/2″-wide seam allowance.
Turn the scarf right side out, then turn one end of the scarf wrong side out and pull it down to align with the other end.
Pin the scarf together with the short ends aligned. The scarf will look like a tube.
Sew the short ends together using a 1/4″-wide seam allowance, leaving a 4″-wide opening for turning.
Turn the scarf right side out through the opening.
Hand-sew the opening closed.
