I am very aware that I am not the first blogger to do a tutorial on making an infinity scarf, but I was going to make one for myself anyways so I thought I would show you all my take on it.
-2/3 yard of 60 inch wide knit fabric
*fabric suggestion : I recommend using thicker knits like sweater knits and ponte knits. This will make a much more lush and expensive looking scarf.
Step 1 -
Square off all sides so that they are straight and even. You may want to even cut off your selvages like I did if they are bit curvy.
Step 2 -
Fold fabric, right sides together, so that it makes a long skinny fold (hotdog ways).
Step 3 -
Sew the raw edges together at about 1/4 inch. If you have a serger then serg it, if not do what I did and just use a long zigzag. Back-stitch at both ends.
Step 4 -
Press seam open if you used a sewing machine and not a serger. The seam should be in the middle of the scarf.
Step 5 -
Turn scarf right side out. Match the seams up so that your tube now makes a circle. Pin seams together right sides together. Make sure that your scarf is not twisted at this point.
Step 6 -
Starting about one presserfoot distance away from the seam, backstitch and then continue to stitch around the edges keeping right sides together and your excess fabric from getting in your stitching. It can take bit of maneuvering but your can do it.
Step 7 -
Step 8 -
Fold one of the sides of the opening under so that it covers the hole and press. Pin in place.
