The DD 2-Seam Infinity Scarf Tutorial

Purple Burnout DD Infinity Scarf

Purple Burnout DD Infinity Scarf

The DD (Daughter of Destashifier), enjoys sewing gifts.  She developed the Stash Couture Infinity Scarf for Christmas gifts this year.

She sewed this beautiful scarf for me using a purple burnout fabric which has been in The Stash for years.

We put together this simple tutorial  – only TWO (Really. Just 2) seams!

  1. Pick a fabric.  Chiffon, tencel, rayon, even soft knits will work for the scarf.  (Corduroy and quilting cottons will not.  The tutorial scarf is a denim weave tencel – so soft!)   >>>>>>>>>              >>>
  2. Rectangle of fabric 30" by 60".

    1.  Rectangle of fabric 30″ by 60″.

    Cut the fabric into a rectangle 60″ long by about 30″ wide.  (If the selected fabric is 60″ wide then 1 yard will be more than enough.  If the fabric is only 45″ wide, then 1 3/4 yards will be required.)  ……………….   

  3. Fold fabric in half (the long way) RIGHT SIDES together and pin the long edges together.  (OK…so pinning is not all that much fun, but fabrics that flow also tend to move while sewing, so yes…..pinning.)    ……………………………………………..          ……………….
  4. One seam done!

    5.  One seam done! Rectangular tube.

    Sew the pinned edge using a 1/2″ seam allowance.

  5. Turn right side out and press.  One seam done!  The scarf should now be a rectangular tube 60″ long by 14″ wide………………………………………………………………………….   …………………                                                                           …..    …………..
  6. Flip lower edge over.

    6.  Flip lower edge over.

    Lay scarf flat.  Pick up lower narrow edge of scarf and flip it over.  This will twist the scarf as shown in Picture 6.     ……………        ……………..

  7. 7.  Double Twist

    Pick up lower edge and flip again.  This will create the “double twist” shown in Picture 7.

    8.  Bring lower edge to upper edge.

    Pick up the lower edge and bring it to the upper edge as shown in Picture 8.    ………………………      ………………   

  9. Pull top layer out of the way and pin second layer to third layer.

    9.  Gently pull top layer out of the way and pin second layer to third layer.

    There are now 4 layers of fabric at the top.  Gently pull the uppermost layer down to expose the second layer.  Pin the second layer to the third layer.  Match side seams.

  10. Top edge completely pinned.

    Continue pinning until a space about 10″ wide remains unpinned.  Turn scarf inside out through that space.  Then continue pinning all the way around.                                           …………………………………..    …………………………………..

  12. Press 5" unsewn section open.

    12.  Press 5″ unsewn section open.

    Place scarf on ironing board and press the 5″ space open as if it were sewn.  This will create a nice finished edge when stitching the opening closed in the Step 14.       .  ………………………    …….

  13. Turning scarf right side out through 5" opening.

    13.  Turning scarf right side out through 5″ opening.

    This tutorial was just what I needed! I’m more of a visual learner than by the written word. I really love the scarf hanger idea too! But I so wished we lived closer than the distance between Arizona and North Carolina! You would be such a wonderful resource for my sewing questions! I spent this morning falling and falling down into the hole of all your projects. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    • Thank you for your kind comments.

      My scarf hanger is now full – I have to make another!!!
