SWEATER SCARF SEWING PATTERN
You can sew the scarf from 2 pieces of fabric. This saves on fabric and is great for using up fabric leftovers.
With a scarf width of 50 cm you need 1 m of knitted fabric. First cut 2 pieces of fabric 0.5m x 1m and sew them together.
For a scarf sewn without a center seam you will need 2.4 m of knitted fabric. This version of the scarf will need to be cut across the grain.
You can definitely use the generous leftovers for other great sewing projects!
Attention: For larger clothing sizes, we recommend cutting the scarf approx. 20 cm longer.
SEWING THE SWEATER SCARF
Overlock the long edges of the fabric with an overlock machine.
Fold the fabric lengthways, right sides together and measure 15 cm from the short fabric edge.
Sew to this mark and turn the scarf right side out.
Sew the fabric into a ring and fold in half, wrong sides together
Pull the cuffs right sides together into the scarf sleeve and sew evenly, stretching as you go. Ready!
The scarf can be worn in several different ways. On YouTube we have discovered a great “How to wear” video for you!
