{DIY} Easy Infinity Scarf

Although winter’s arrival was a little late in many parts of the country, it has officially arrived. And with cooler temperatures comes perfect scarf-wearing weather. I’ve always been a huge fan of scarfs, but it wasn’t until late in 2011 that I discovered the scarf to end all scarfs: the infinity scarf, or as American Apparel calls it: the circle scarf.

The versicle scarf can be worn a variety of ways — as a basic scarf, doubled scarf (my fave way to wear it), as a shawl, a hooded shawl, a caplet, a top, or even a skirt or dress. Just take a look at this helpful guide American Apparel has…


A cool $28 will get you one from American Apparel, OR you can create your own for about half the price (depending of course on how expensive your fabric is — check out MommySavesBig for printable coupons from all the major craft retailers)…and it’s super easy!

You’ll Need:

  • 2 yards of knit fabric (Knit fabric works best because it doesn’t fray. Try to aim for one that naturally curls on the edges like mine shown below — this ensures you won’t have to worry about the way unfinished edges look, as they’ll simply curl in.)
  • Thread similar in color to your fabric
  • Sewing machine, or needle if you’re able to hand-sew
  • Pins

To Make:

  1. Fold your fabric in half length-wise. If it has an obvious inside and outside, fold it so it’s inside-out.
  2. Pin the edges opposite the fold together. This will be where you create your seam.
  3. Sew the seam, cutting off any excess when you’re finished so your seam isn’t bulky on the inside.
  4. Turn it outside-in, and ta-da! You now have a finished infinity scarf!

Wasn’t that easy?
