Regular Scarf to Infinity Scarf- The Easy Way

regular scarf to infinity scarf easy

We have been doing a lot of organizing and purging around the house in preparation for a possible move. A couple of weeks ago I cleaned out our basket full of winter hats, gloves and scarfs. I pulled out a couple of scarfs I forgot about that I no longer wore. The fringe on both the scarfs didn’t look good anymore and I have had them forever. Both scarfs made me think they would make a perfect infinity scarf but I wasn’t interested as wearing as a regular scarf anymore. 

I wanted to make this a super easy and quick project. I know real seamstresses might not approve of the method I used but I figured these scarfs were destined for the Goodwill pile so I didn’t care if I made a perfect seam.

I started with these two scarfs.


I folded the scarf in half, lining up the two sides and pinned them together. I got out my rotary cutter and ruler and made an even cut to remove the fringe.


Then I sewed a the two pieces together with a straight stitch. I made a zig zag stitch next to the first stitch to help with fraying.


And done! I know the seam is visible but when I put the scarf on I make sure it is in the back and facing my neck. You can’t tell I didn’t make a perfect stitch. I am in love with both of these scarfs now! Too bad winter seems to be over because I want to wear them all the time.

The next 10 days are supposed to be in the 60-70 degree range so I am not complaining about that! This has been the most mild winter and earliest spring that I can ever remember in Northeast Ohio. Usually in mid March we are lucky to have a one or two warm days.
