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!
- 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!
- Coordinating thread (and needle and sewing machine)
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.
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!
