Infinity scarf which is also known as the circle scarf or tube scarf or the eternity scarf is one must-have item in your wardrobe. It is not difficult to make one, which is only one of the reasons why I have 6 of them.
They are a versatile wear that can be worn in many different ways. No slipping off your body, one end longer than the other; if made in an appropriate fabric, this double-sided scarf can give all the warmth and protection you need.
Basically, an Infinity scarf is just a scarf that is just one big long loop, which makes it a breeze to make yourself. One / Two or three seams with a pretty fabric in your stash and you have a scarf which you can wear for many an occasion.

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
To make the simple infinity scarf take a lightweight 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 in length and a 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 do not 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 yards) ; 70 inches is 1.77 meter ( 1.94 yards)
Fold the fabric piece by half lengthwise, right sides together. Sew the long edges together, the whole length.
Press the seams open.You now have a long tube of fabric in your hands.
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.
Close the opening with tiny hand stitches – Slip stitch
