Can you believe Christmas is in just over a week? I certainly can't, and I've been busily finishing up some last minute handmade Christmas gifts for my family and friends.
Something I'm making this year are piles and piles of infinity scarves (remember the tutorial I posted in September?). They don't take very long, they're so pretty and practical, and you can personalize them with fabric choice to suit the recipient.
I've made three more variations of the classic knit jersey style I had originally made, and I really think they're all pretty!
Sparkly Striped Sweater Knit Infinity Scarf
For a festive and sparkly look (like the first picture above), I made an infinity scarf with a glittery striped sweater knit. I made this one extra wide (the raw fabric measured about 40" wide before it was folded and sewn).
Woven Burgundy & Chocolate Plaid Infinity Scarf
Plaid is trendy in a big way this year, and I made a second version of the infinity scarf with a plaid woven fabric with a slight stretch to it. This one was also extra wide (at about 44" before it was folded and sewn). I'm really liking the look of adding quite a bit of extra width to the scarves, giving them a dramatic full look.
Cream Lace Overlay Infinity Scarf
Finally, I made a third version of the infinity scarf by laying a piece of stretch lace over a piece of stretchy jersey (both were about 15" wide) right sides together. I sewed them together along the length of each side, and then completed the rest of the scarf as I did in my original tutorial. You could use a different colour of knit jersey for a more contrasting look. It's such a romantic version of the infinity scarf!
Have you tried making an infinity scarf yet? Please share below if you have with a link to your finished project! Or, if you're planning on making one for yourself or as a Christmas gift - what would be your favourite fabric choice?
I am going to pin this for next winter! Hopefully we won't need scarves much longer and spring will arrive.
Thank you, Jody! I really need spring now too!
Thanks for the great info. I have lots of material and can't wait to try some varying combinations for fun. Making Christmas and bazaar items. I will take a few pix if possible.
You're very welcome! I love giving these scarves as gifts.
