    EASY INFINITY SCARF - 4 steps 15 minutes

    Spoiler - Choosing the fabric for this scarf is going to take more time than sewing it.

    Dimensions - The best way to know what is the length of the fabric piece you need to sew the infinity scarf is to wrap an existing scarf around your neck in whichever way you plan to wear it - as a single loop or double loop or around the head or around the shoulders

    You can either make it as a tube or simply sew the short edges of  a fabric strip together to make the infinity scarf loop

    how to make an infinity scarf

    To make the simple infinity scarf take a light  weight fabric piece of dimensions 30 inch width and 62 inches long. Finish the long sides neatly. Sew the short edges together . I would use a french seam or a flat felled seam, as this stitching needs to be inconspicuous. That is it, you have your super simple ready for everywhere infinity scarf.

    To make the tube scarf : I have taken a silk cloth of 80 inches length and width of 15 inches . Now it will be folded by half lengthwise  and stitched into a loop to make it somewhere around 7 inches by 79 inches . For a single loop you donot need this length and definitely not for something close to your neck. If you have just 3/4 meters ( .82 yard) you can make this scarf of the above mentioned dimensions - you will need to make one more seam joining the pieces. If you want it in one piece 80 inches is about 2 meters (2.18 yard); 60 inches is 1.5 meter ( 1.66 yard) ; 70 inches is 1.77 meter ( 1.94 yard)

    Step 3

    To join this tube's edges together to form a loop, keep the edges of the opening right sides together and pin. Stitch along the edge as much as you can. Some 2-3 inches short of closing the tube, you will be unable to stitch anymore. Backstitch and take off the machine.
