DIY infinity scarf tutorial

Today I have a cute and easy DIY infinity scarf tutorial to share with you. I whipped this cute scarf up in about 20 minutes flat. I am now tempted to make about 20 more in every color!

I found this super cute ruffled fabric from Hobby Lobby and knew it would make the perfect scarf. I used my coupon, so this scarf ended up being less than five bucks! Can’t beat that!

DIY infinity scarf

Here’s what you’ll need to get started.

Supplies:

  • 1 yard of fabric (I like using knit because it’s stretchy)
  • Sewing machine + thread
  • Scissors
  • Sewing pins
  • Needle and thread

Instructions:

1. Cut your fabric to 60in x 30 in.

2. Fold right sides together and pin along the longer edge. The raw side of the fabric should be facing out.

3. Sew the pinned edge together and then flip the fabric right side out.

4. Pin the two openings of the tube right sides together. Make sure to match up the seams. Once you’ve pinned as far as you can, sew that part with your sewing machine.

5. Hand stitch the last opening and tie a knot on each end to secure the stitch.

Hi! Some bolts of fabric come in different sizes so you might have bought a smaller fabric. If it is 55″ it would still work, I probably wouldn’t go shorter than that though! πŸ™‚

This is a great tutorial. I have seen other instructions for infinity scarves that are much more complicated. My daughters (6 and 8) make crafts to sell to raise money for the American Cancer Society. I think they can make scarves to sell. Thanks!!

Thanks for your comment Jackie! That is so neat that your girls make crafts to raise money for the American Cancer Society, they sound like amazing girls! These scarves are easy to make and would be perfect to sell! πŸ™‚

Hello Jamielynn,Β 
I love your scarf! I’m dying to make myself one, then perhaps for others if it turns out! πŸ™‚ My question is, one yard is 36 inches, so to make the measurements 60×30, does that mean I have to cut the one yard fabric in half then sew in the middle to make one long length of fabric?Β 

Please let me know, I’m just dying to make my scarf, I already bought the material, but hesitating on the length.Β 

Thanks in advance!

I’m commenting almost two years later, but do you think the measurements in this tutorial would work for a 15-year-old girl? She’s pretty petite so I’m debating.Β 

Yes! She can twist it three times if she likes – which is what my youngest does when he steals my scarf. My very slim middle-schooler wears it with two twists, like I do.

I think I followed your directions, but I’m not sure my end result is the right thing. I have super limited experience with scarves in general and even more limited experience with infinity scarves. My complete project measures roughly 14″x 42″. You Β mentioned you twist it 2-3 times…I’m not sure what that means. As my “scarf” sits right now, It basically just slips over the head – there’s not really room to wrap or twist. Did I do it wrong?

I want to reply to my own comments so I’m not creating a bunch of different threads, but it’s not letting me do that for some reason. I forgot to mention that I started with a 30″ x 56″ piece of lightweight stretchy knit. One thought I’ve had is that maybe I sewed the length incorrectly…should I have sewn the selvage first and THEN the raw edge?
