Today I’m bringing home another of my guest posts–the Double-Sided Infinity Scarf Tutorial–and since infinity scarves are fabulous no matter the weather, it still seems just as timely as when I wrote it. I hope you enjoy seeing it again (or for the first time)!
Hi! I’m Lisa from Mabey She Made It, a DIY craft and sewing blog, and I’m excited to be part of Allison’s guest post line-up!
l admit that I’m not much of a scarf wearer–not that I don’t like them, I just don’t usually take the time to accessorize my outfits since most days I’m at home with a 2-year-old and a 3-year-old. They just don’t care whether I have on jewelry or other accessories. But once I tried on an infinity scarf, my mind kind of changed. They keep my neck warm, they’re cute, and I look like I actually tried that day. Triple win. Especially during winter.
So when I bought a 1/4 yard Mystery Box from Girl Charlee (affiliate link), I saw all the wonderful pieces of knit and knew that some of them were the perfect size and color for an infinity scarf. And while most infinity scarves I’ve seen have been one piece of fabric, I really wanted to use some coordinating fabrics that were just awesome together.
Would you like to make one (or ten) for yourself? Follow along!
- Start by cutting two pieces of knit 11″ by the width of your fabric. Mine was 60″ wide, and it’s perfect. If you want just one fabric, you can save a step and just cut your knit 22″ by the width.
- Put the pieces together right sides together, and sew both sides together, leaving a couple inches gap on ONE side (for turning later).
- Start pinning the two openings together, right sides together and lining up the seams.
- Now sew all around the circle so you get a circular tube. At some point, you’ll have to kind of shove all the fabric inside the tube like this:
- Turn the scarf right-side-out using the gap on the side seam.
- Sew up your gap (either by hand or with a machine), press, and you’re ready to wear it!
Thanks for following along as we made a double-sided infinity scarf! I’d love it if you came over to Mabey She Made It for more fun ideas!
Very cute. It looks easy enough for me to make!
Easy projects are so much fun! I made about 10 of these, and have loved having them for gifts and thank yous. I hope you try it out!
I was really confused, and this answered all my quioetsns.
What a pretty scarf! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Show-licious Craft and Recipe party! Pinned!
You’re so welcome, Marti, and thank you so much for pinning it!
Oh, I love the two fabrics together on one scarf! I’ll have to try this out, it’s very pretty.
I’m hosting a series right now all about yarn projects. I’d love for you to come link up anything you’ve made using yarn or twine or the like to the link party!

Thank you, Kimberly! It’s been fun to have the two fabrics together.
Very cute. How did you manage to find two patterns that looked so cute together. That would be the difficult part for me. #SITSSharefest
Hi Adrian, I think luck was on my side. I typically would have gone with a solid, but the patterns just happened to fall together in the scrap pile, and it was love. 🙂
Very cute scarf but could not tell what you where doin after you put right sides together sewed then ….you just don’t seem to have enough information…sorry.
Did you sew this with a zig zag stitch? Can I just use a straight stitch? I have zero experience sewing with knits and can’t seem to find the definitive answer.
