Circle scarves, infinity scarves, or snoods...what ever you prefer to call them, I love them! Not only because they are so dang cute to wear and warm, they are super easy to make. I could have put another 10 tutorials or so on here, but I had to limit it to just 5. So perfect to pair it with that cute top or overcoat and boots. It doesn't only keep you warm, but it is a perfect accessory to slip on to dress you up when you're running out the door. I had a hard time not taking apart all of my sweaters, and sewing up all of my old scarves, I'm sure you will too!
1 - Long tube circle scarf
1. Cut out a strip of fabric 40" wide and WHAT" long. The longer the fabric, the more bunchiness and chunkiness. If you have a thick fabric, you need less length, and if you have thinner fabric, you need more lenght. Mine was average knit fabric.
2. Fold it in half, so the longer sides are touching each other. It looks like a maxi skirt at this point.
3. Sew up the one side with sewing machine or by hand with needle and thread.
*If you are using knit, it typically doesn't fray...so stick it on you're done!
4. If you aren't using knit, then make sure to hem up the top and bottom folding under twice to hide the raw edges.
Only with knit material because it doesn't fray, you could overlap the edges and glue them on top of each other.
2 - Double wrap tube circle scarf
Follow these measurements:
30" wide x 60"long
*If you want to make it even chunkier than this or you are using thiner material like a sheer polyester, a crocket, a flowy material (I'm using about average thick knit) I would definitely add more to the width, but the length is perfect as 60".
3 - Refashion any old scarf into a circle scarf, scarf
Sew the ends of a scarf together to make by hand stitching with a needle and thread (like I show from an old tutorial of mine below) or sewing machine. If your scarf is really chunky like mine, a sewing machine is nice to use because the ends are already finished on the scarf, so you just overlap them a little bit on top of each other and sew a straight stitch. Done!
But if you really don't feel like doing any sewing at all, then use some fabric glue to join the ends together! Just overlap the ends on top of each other, glue and let dry.
4 - Fur snood
1. Cut 2 pieces of fabric, the fur piece will be about 33" long x 12" wide. The second piece of fabric is the liner, cut it to be 33" long and 2" shorter so the fur will roll over into the inside a little. Pin and sew right sides together the edges together (the fur side and the outside of the lining).
2. Turn the tube right side out, so the fur is on the outside.
3&4. Pin the two openings together, starting about 1/4 down the fur, through to the linning and back through till 1/4 down the fur opening. Kind of like this tutorial. Sew. So then you are left with a little opening.
5. Sew the little opening closed. boy fold the opening's edges a little and pin them on top of each other. You won't even see the thread because of the fur, so you can just top stitch it.
6. Comb out/pull the fur that was sewn into the edges.
5 - Sweater snood (refashioned from an old scarf)
1. Depending on how deep and chunky you want the snood, will depend on how much you want to cut. I wanted mine mighty chunky so I cut just below the neckline and took the sleeves off. If I had a longer sweater, then I would be able to cut just to right under the chest.
2. Once cut, sew up any side openings, unless you just cut from under the sleeve down, then just skip to step 3.
3. Hem the top opening down a quarter of an inch, then fold again and hem down 2 inches or so. I tacked it instead around the top about ever 3 to 4 inches because I didn't want there to be a line around the top.
