Infinity Scarf Tutorial
An infinity scarf is a loop of material that incorporates a half-twist along its length and thus has only one surface, and only one edge.
One can wrap an infinity scarf around for a cowl-neck effect or simply drape it around for a more dramatic touch. Loop scarves became extemely popular fashion accessory, that is why I have decided to make one too.
What you will need to sew your own Infinity scarf:
-1.6 yard (140 cm) wool or jersey fabric
– sewing machine
– thread, needle, pins
– ruler or tape-measure
Step 1. Cut out a rectangle from the piece of your fabric. I chose the length of 54” (140 cm), but you can cut a longer rectangle and adjust the length later. For my version of infinity scarf I used the 23” (60cm) width.

Step 2. Fold your fabric in half length wise, with the right sides facing each other inside. Line up the edges of the fabric and pin the longer sides together.

Step 3. Sew together the long side of the fabric, leaving a 1/2″ (1.5 cm) seam. Remove the pins.

Step 4. Turn your scarf right side out and make sure it isn’t twisted. Fold it in half and line up the raw edges of the ends. Start pinning them together from two pieces facing each other (see below). Go on pinning all the way round to the other edge, keeping right sides together .

Step 5. Sew together the edges with a 1/2″ (1.5 cm) seam. Do not sew together the last 4” (10cm) of the scarf. Remove the pins.

Step 6. Flip the right sides out and tuck the raw ends into the scarf (see below). All you need to do is to hand stitch the ends with a secret saw.
