Materials and Equipment
I had some faux fur, that I bought a while ago in John Lewis,( not available on line anymore) but I have included a few links to fabric that would be suitable
My fabric was unusually wide and I only needed to buy 40cm if your knit or faux fur is a loose weave and you want the scarf to be a snug fit 40cm x 150 cm is plenty - your measurements to cut x 2 will be 35cm x 75cm
Matching thread or contrast thread, pins, tape measure, chalk and scissors.
Tips for beginners
Seam allowance 1 cm this is the distance between the edge of the fabric and the stitch line. You will find a series of parallel lines engraved on the needle plate of your sewing machine pick the one marked with the measurement you need and keep the edge of the fabric to this guide
RS = right side of fabric WS = wrong side of fabric.
Cut out the two panels following the diagram above. Pin the panels together Right side facing on the long seams as shown.
Using a matching thread ,stitch the seams together using a 1cm seam allowance.
Turn the scarf to the RS facing you.
With right sides facing and matching the seams, pin the seam together from one seam to the other (Half the scarf) machine stitch into place.
You should be able to join from one seam to the other easily . Now pin the remaining opening as shown you will not be able to machine stitch the whole gap, machine as much as you can.
The last bit is a little fiddly, pin the RS together as far as you can.
Pin and slip stitch the remaining gap. CONGRATULATIONS slip on, your stunning infinity scarf
and keep cosy in the cold.
