okay, okay, i know…
i need to get a hobby other than making scarves.
but i cannot stop because making scarves is such a quick, easy, inexpensive, and fun craft.
what isn’t to like about that?!
after this scarf, i promise to move on to headbands… or something else 🙂
for this scarf, i wanted to combine my new love for the spaghetti infinity scarf
with a braided section.
this is the easiest t-shirt scarf you can make,
and will most likely take you 10-15 minutes!
to start, all you need is a t-shirt and pair of scissors.
no need to worry about making straight cuts as the pieces will be combined 🙂
(thank goodness because my cutting skills are comparable to that of a kindergartner)
cut your shirt from left to right in one inch strips;
aim to have nine total.
cut loops in half so you have nine long strands of t-shirt.
secure strips with one strand of the t-shirt
allow enough space above the knot to later tie scarf together.
braid scarf to desired length.
you can have the scarf be half braided and half loose,
or whatever you decide looks best 🙂
i braided approximately one third of my scarf,
and left the rest loose.
secure the braid with one strand of the t-shirt.
stretch the non-braided strands that will remain loose so they begin to curl.
(this will hide any uneven cutting)
gather both ends of the scarf and tie.
i used part of the hem for this,
as i could not figure out how else to knot both ends.
the loose pieces above will go behind your neck.
the final product will look something like this.
i apologize as it probably took longer to read my tutorial
than it will take to physically make the scarf.
please let me know if you have questions,
or suggestions as to how better to secure both ends.
i love your feedback 🙂
