Tutorial: DIY Scarf Cardigan

Have you enjoyed the quick project week so far? I know I have, and there is still another day tomorrow! 
Today's project is just for you! It's a scarf and cardigan in one, and it's perfect for cold days!
Sweater, sweatshirt, cardigan, long-sleeved tee, etc.
Sewing Supplies*

1. Cut your top on center front (if using a cardigan the front will already be cut.).
2. Measure the center front. This is the height of the scarf.
3. Measure from bottom of center front, up around the neckline, and back down to the bottom of center front. This is the width of the scarf.
4. Cut out the scarf. Mine was 55" x 20".
5. With wrong sides together, sew one side of the scarf to the center front at 1/4". Flip the seam around so now it's right sides together and sew again at 3/8". (This is a French seam and encloses all the edges.)
6. Do the same with the other side. That's it!
To put on the scarf cardigan, hold the scarf in front of you. Cross it and make a loop. Put loop over your head. Adjust for looks and comfort.
Now cuddle up in style and comfort!
What are you most excited about making first?


  1. So smart. And that would be a creative cover up for nursing. Not your typical cover up. Or a cover up in a crunch!

  2. That's such a great idea!! I've linked to your tutorial at Craft Gossip: http://sewing.craftgossip.com/tutorial-10-minute-scarf-cardigan/2014/01/23/

  3. Awesome! I am loving all of your 10 minute projects. I have never been sad for Friday, maybe a 10 minute month......lol.

  4. So cute and clever! I completely agree with the fact that it would be great for nursing. I'm going to have to try this!
