Infinity Scarf (My Way!)


I finally made my first Infinity Scarf. I had directions which I wasn't crazy about. I looked up more patterns on various websites. I wrote up my own directions after reading up and actually making the scarf.

I used 2/3 yard of rayon batik. The fun thing about this pattern is you can make it longer or shorter. It all depends on your preference. I cut my fabric in half, parallel to selvages. I sewed the two pieces together using 1/2 inch seam. Then I ironed the seams open. I sewed the long piece into a tube, right sides together. I also matched up the seams while making up the tube. Then, I turned it inside out and pinned the short sides together. Also, matching up the seams. You can only sew a portion of this seam. Do the best you can. Iron open the seams. Sew the opening by hand. I ironed the seam allowances so hand sewing would be easier. Ta da! You're done!


Here it is! Your brand new scarf! I plan on making more. They're quick and a great accessory to wear!



Here's my knit shawlette. This one is taking much longer than my infinity scarf! It shouldn't take me too much longer. It's getting faster to knit as I decrease.

  1. Nice Infinity Scarf--I've read a lot of directions too and they make it sound very complicated...yours came out so well!! I like your shawlette--really nice color...I am thinking of starting another one for myself--I gave my cousin the first one I made as she doesn't knit and really liked it!! ....hugs, Julierose

    1. Thanks, Julierose! Glad I'm not the only one who thought the Infinity Scarf directions were confusing. I tried to make it as easy as possible. I love shawlettes! They're so cute and fun to knit.

More Machine Quilting

I finally started machine quilting the scrap quilt I made a little while ago. It took me forever to decide what to do with that border....
