To Infinity Scarf...and Beyond!

I know, I know, what is so great about an infinity scarf tutorial?  After all, you can find them all over the web.  That is, if you even need a tutorial at all.  But, none the less, I'm posting one anyway.  This one, however, may be slightly different.


I started with this sweater that I had in my stash.  Originally, I was going to use it for a Christmas stocking, but plans tend to change around here.


Then I got to work...


After cutting, you will have two "tubes."  Cut the seams off the tubes and even the seams up if they are flared out at all.  With right sides together, stitch all the pieces together—forming one larger tube.


Serge, or zigzag the edges of your scarf.  Don't worry if it ripples a little.


Cover your edges with a decorative stitch.


More fanciness, if desired...


Now, on to the finishing touches that puts this infinity scarf "beyond" others!





And there you have it!  A nice infinity scarf with decorative edges and moveable pieces that can be positioned wherever you desire!




I like to link to these great parties!
