Little Boy Infinity Scarf Tutorial

I've recently fallen in love with infinity scarves. I know, I'm so behind the times. I tie the corners together of all my scarves so that they become infinity scarves. I found that infinity scarves for boys are perfect because they're easy to get on, they don't get in the way of play, and they can't fall off.
Supplies:
Fabric either knit or woven
scissors, thread, pins

1. Cut out your scarf. I cut Henry's scarf 20" (width) by 14" (height). If you want yours to double loop then double the width. If you want yours to be taller, add more to the height.
2. With right sides together sew the two long sides together. (I sewed with a zigzag because I used knit.)
3. Turn right side out. Fold over and match edges together at seam.
4. Sew the edges right sides together. Since it's a circle, you won't be able to sew all the way around. You'll have to leave about a 3" opening.
5.  You can hand sew the opening closed, or just pinch it closed by topstitching. I just topstitched it because I'm lazy.
 That's it!
This one is a little big for Henry, but it'll be great with a coat. And he'll be able to grow into it.
Bring on the snow!

  1. I love a good little boy sewing project! Thanks for sharing it with us. I am hosting a scarf-making challenge in November. It's a busy time of year, so I figured a scarf would be a quick and easy project to finish within a month. It's just for fun, the winners receive bragging rights and badges only. You and anyone you think might be interested are more than welcome to join us. You can visit our homepage here:
