Gap Inspired Loop Scarf

I have always loved both infinity and loop scarves. I do not, however, love how expensive they are! I splurged a while back and bought a blue infinity scarf from the Gap (for a little under $20, on sale), and then realized I could not afford my “need” for more scarves. So, I headed to JoAnn’s and bought one yard of Rayon/Spandex knit (for only $5, with a coupon) and made my own in under 15 minutes and, for a quarter of the price!

Materials Needed:

materials

  • Washed and dried Rayon/Spandex knit either 1 or 3/4 yard. Originally $12.99/yd, but with 40% or 50% off coupon, it costs between $5 and $7! 
  • Pins
  • Coordinating thread (and needle and sewing machine)

Step 1:

step1

Match up the shorter ends of the fabric. As shown above, the rolled edges should be on the outside so the “good” side is inside.

Step 2:

step2

Sew the fabric together with zig-zag stitching. It isn’t difficult fabric to sew, but it does stretch. Pinning helps avoid uneven ends.

Then, turn the scarf inside out. Ta-da! A gorgeous loop scarf!
