How to Make an Infinity Scarf
Fall is most definitely here now and that means it’s time for some warmer clothing. I will admit that I’m just a little bit scarf crazy and I love to have a fun scarf to wear to town (and I have plenty for at home around the farmstead, too. I love crocheted scarves!).

This year I decided to try my hand at making an Infinity Scarf. I love how easy they are to wear since you don’t have to continually wrap them when they fall down, just loop them over your head and you are good to go. As it turns out, making an infinity scarf is just as easy as wearing them!
I’m glad I gave it a try because now I can make them in any color I need, and you can too with the infinity scarf pattern below!

Here’s the fabric I found for my scarf. It’s kind of a lacy, stretchy, knit fabric and I actually picked it up on Amazon, although I normally get fabric from Fabric.com. For a long scarf that can loop twice, you will need a full yard of fabric. For a shorter scarf, that will only loop once, you will only need half a yard of fabric.
Of course, you always want to start any sewing project by washing your fabric. This helps to avoid shrinkage after sewing.
Once you’ve done that you can start your project by folding the fabric in half and cutting on the fold so that you have 2 pieces of fabric that are the same size. Don’t worry about having perfect edges right now.
Take one of the pieces and cut it in half. Set aside one of the halves…you won’t need it for this scarf.
Take 2 of the short sides of the fabric and sew them together. Now you will have one long piece of fabric about 30 inches wide.
Turn the fabric inside out and fold the fabric in half the long way. Sew all the way along the long side of the fabric. Then turn the fabric right side out again.
After this step, you will have one long tube.
Finally, you will want to sew the last 2 edges together to form a tube circle with your fabric. Trim the excess from the seam after sewing.
That’s it! Loop and wear. 🙂
This simple project only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish. It would make a great gift for someone or a great way to add a nice scarf to your wardrobe.
