want a little jump-start making your jersey infinity scarf? stop in the shop and pick up a jersey infinity scarf kit for $11.99. kits include: printed tutorial, fabric, and a ballpoint needle.
. 2/3 yard knit fabric (fabric shown in photos is from the Heaven & Helsinki collection by Patty Young for Michael Miller)
. ballpoint needle (also called jersey or stretch)
. thread, sewing machine, and notions
tips for sewing with knits:
. take care to not pull or push fabric while stitching, letting the machine feed fabric
. always use a ballpoint needle
. if available, set machine stitch length to “stretch”
. when “stretch” setting is not available, use a small zigzag stitch *or* overcasting stitch with appropriate presser foot
￼making your scarf:
1. fold fabric right sides together, lining up raw edges along long side
2. stitch along long raw edge (use 1/4” seam allowance or overcasting foot)
3. trim selvage off both ends of tube
4. reach into one side of the tube and pull second raw edge up through tube to meet the first, raw edges will now be right sides together at opening
5. pin around raw edges and stitch, leaving a 2” opening for turning
6. turn scarf right side out
7. hand-stitch opening closed *or* pull seam away from fullness of scarf and machine stitch close to folded edge
and you’re done… great job! make sure to share pictures of your finished scarves in the sewn studio flickr group.
