required materials:

. 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

    Thank’s for such great directions…Yours are by far the easiest ones I have found..Most of them are a little confusing when it comes to sewing short ends but not yours….I’m going to go get some fabric today and start sewing
    !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Does the 2/3 yard length of the fabric become the width of the scarf or the length of the scarf?

    Hello.. what do you mean when you say “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”? kind of confused on that part.

  9. sewn studio says:

    Shara- you will be folding the tube in on itself. So the two openings will be right sides together, raw edges together. Does that make sense?
