How Do You Make an Infinity Scarf?

To make an infinity scarf, you need 3/4 yard of 60-inch wide lightweight jersey fabric, straight pins, thread, an iron, thread and a sewing machine or needle. This creates a short scarf with finished dimensions of 59 inches around and 12 inches deep.

  1. Cut the fabric

    Cut the fabric along the full width of 60 inches so you have a piece of fabric that is 60 inches long and 24 inches wide.

  2. Prepare to sew

    Fold the piece of fabric in half lengthwise with the right sides touching each other and the wrong sides facing out. Place straight pins through the fabric along the length to hold it in place.

  3. Sew the scarf

    Starting at one end of the fabric, use your sewing machine to sew a straight stitch from one end of the scarf to the other. Be sure to take out the straight pins as you go. Leave a 2-inch hole at the bottom of the scarf. Pull the fabric through this hole so the right side is out. Tuck the raw edges of the hole into the fabric, and sew over it to seal. Take the two ends of the scarf, and press them together. Sew both pieces together to create a circle.
