Another infinity scarf makeover tutorial

You remember this tutorial using a scarf I made from an old scarf that I never wore.  I love how it turned out!

Same idea here--I made this chunky scarf during my knitting phase, sophomore year of college, probably?  It was cute and all, but I associate it with the cropped corduroy blazers, crewneck wooly sweaters, and flared Hollister jeans I wore it with, and it was really long, and the fringe was so bulky and not elegant...

So I remade it.  So glad those circle scarves are in right now, cuz this one was a perfect candidate for a remake!  Wanna see how I did it?  I doubt you need the step-by-step, but here are the pics anyway! ;)
  • Remove all the fringe pieces.  You should have some pretty prominent gaps where they were looped through.
  •  Using a large needle, connect the end of the scarf if you have one and a piece of fringe--or, just a couple pieces of fringe tied together.  Or, of course, if you have more yarn, use that.
  •  Going from loop to loop, sew the ends together!
  •  At the edge, tie off with the other end of yarn, if you have one--if not, loop around and create a knot with the yarn piece itself.

Ta-da!  Wear in loops as you choose!

Here's some chunky cowl-shaped scarf inspiration for you...

    This is an absolutely GREAT idea! I make scarves of all kinds and this will add to my project box. Thank you so much! Love your blog!

  11. I love it! And what a great way to fix an older style scarf!

  12. This looks great! How long is the scarf you were sewing together? Do you make two, three or four loops? Or just like you want to?

    1. Thanks! Good question--I didn't measure it but it is pretty long. I loop it three times when I wear it. You also could do this with a shorter (but wider?) one and loop it twice.
