Welcome to Part 2 of our Anya Knit Tutorial series: The Infinity Scarf! We’ve been sewing up cozy infinity scarves for the shop using our new Anya organic cotton knits, and they’ve been really popular. They’re the perfect weight to add a bit of warmth and a stylish print to any outfit. Here’s Mindy with the simple instructions!
Infinity scarves are a fun and easy project, and make a great gift or addition to your wardrobe. We love these scarves in our Anya Organic Knits as a spring accessory! You can play around with the dimensions to make your scarf wider or narrower, shorter or longer. Our Anya Knits are 58” wide, so you’ll have enough fabric to make two scarves!
You will need:
1 ½ yds of knit fabric A
1 ½ yds of knit fabric B
sewing machine/serger and coordinating thread
hand sewing needle
Step by step guide:
-Cut a rectangle measuring 14” x 54” (with the long side on the length grain) out of both fabric A and fabric B*.
-Place right sides together and sew along the long edges with a ½” seam allowance, using a zig zag stitch or serger.
-Holding the scarf upright and vertical with wrong side out, reach inside the tube and pull the lower short edge up through the tube so that the right sides are facing and the raw edges are even. Pin right sides together, matching fabric A to fabric A and fabric B to fabric B.
-Sew around the tube with a ½” seam allowance, leaving about a 4” gap.
-Turn the scarf right side out through the 4″ gap. Press, and hand stitch the opening closed.
Let us know if you make an infinity scarf and how it turned out!
*Note: If you prefer to use only one fabric you can cut one larger rectangle, measuring 27” x 54”, then fold lengthwise right sides together and sew the long edge.
