Large Braided Infinity Scarf

 
It's the perfect time of year up here in the Pacific Northwest to pull out your scarf collection...

 A girl can never have too many scarves, right?

And it's even better when you can make them yourselves. I love the texture and the slight shimmer of this Large Braided Infinity Scarf.

Would you like to make one? Of course you would! Grab yourself some fabric. I prefer making my infinity scarves out of knit. That way it has a little stretch to it. I found this black knit with metallic threading throughout at Joann's, my second home. You will need 1/2 yard. Keeping the fabric folded in half like when it comes off the bolt cut it in thirds. Each piece should be 6 inches tall.

Fold these strips in half length wise and serge (or sew with a zig-zag stitch) along the raw edges.

You will now have three really long tubes.

Turn them right sides out.

Lay the three tubes on top of each other. Pin one side of the ends together. Braid the three tubes together all the way to the end.

Now take one tube from each end and match them up right sides together.

Slowly sew them together leaving a small opening.

Pull so they are right sides out. Tuck the opening in.

Using a needle and thread hand stitch the opening closed. Repeat with the other two remaining tubes.

 And you have yourself a Large Braided Infinity Scarf. You can wear it long or you can double it up as I have.
