how to make a lacy infinity scarf

102511.1
I’ve had this blue crochet material sitting around for ages that was perfect for the project. You can use any kind of lace or crochet fabric. I also used a floral print cotton blend.
102511.2
To start, I cut two 11″ by 55″ rectangles from the floral print and one of the crochet material. Feel free to make it thicker or longer! Have fun experimenting.
102511.3
Take one of the floral printed rectangles and lay it wrong side down, right side facing up. Then lay the crochet fabric on top of it. Pin all sides. Baste stitch every edge. If you are new to sewing, baste stitches are made by setting your sewing machine to the longest length. The stitches are not permanent and use less thread.
102511.4
Now you have two rectangles. One with the crochet fabric attached to it and one without. Lay the two rectangles on top of each other, right sides together, and pin. Sew only the two longest sides, creating a tube. Press the seams then turn right side out.
102511.5
Now comes the trickiest part. Take the two open ends of the tube and begin pinning right sides together, making sure all seams line up. You won’t be able to pin the whole way. Pin as far as you can, then sew the pinned area. There will be a small hole left. Hand stitch the hole. In short, you’re sewing the ends together. And you’re done!

This scarf is lovely. I just saw some fabric like this at Hancocks yesterday, I thought it was super pretty but i had no idea what to do with it. I think your tutorial is well written too, I only skimmed it but I still understand what you did ;) I'll be back if I need extra details when I find the time to make one.

Krista says:

Wonderful!!! I hope all you ladies try it out! If you have any questions or need extra help feel free to shoot me an email!

This is great. I just made one of these the other day – love scarves. But using two different fabrics is a great idea. I'll have to add that to my To-Do list. Thanks!

April says:

This is such a cute idea… I may have to try it. I love the colors you used, too. You are so cute. I can't remember how I found your blog but it's been one of my favorite reads lately. You have such cute, unique style and an obvious talent for design… I really wish I could just absorb your talent! Also I love your hair color – I have considered going a vibrant shade of red (my natural hair color is kind of red) but so far I've been too scared so I just stick to the blond highlites. Anyway, you're just really cute and I want to be like you! Thanks for sharing all your great ideas on your blog!

Jess says:

Hi, I’m planning to make this scarf, it’s so cool! I have a really, really random question though..when are the basting stitches removed? Thanks!

lazysaturdays says:

Hi Jess! Great question. I actually never took mine out. If you baste stitch at a smaller width than you plan on sewing together the two final sides, the stitching will be in the seam allowance and you’ll never see it or need to take it out. Does that make sense? I hope it does! Let me know if it doesn’t! Good luck!

Ana says:

I hope that you don’t mind that I linked you into my blog. I like this scarf so much.

Hugs.

Jennifer says:

Hi. I am really excited to make the infinity scarf. However, I am having a very difficult time finding crochet material. Would you be able to tell me where you find crochet material? Thank you so much for your help. The scarf is so pretty.

lazysaturdays says:

I’m excited you’re going to make this scarf! I actually found this fabric about 8 years ago in the LA garment district and highly doubt it’s there anymore :( But you could use any type of lace or you could google “knitted fabrics” and see if you can find something similar. I hope this helps and that you find something you love!

Carla Caswell says:

Awesome idea!! Just starting my own business and looking for some neat ideas. This is perfect. Living in a very small town though it’s hard to find some type of fabrics I’m looking for :-( But I love your idea!! Thank You..

lazysaturdays says:

I totally understand the lack of fabric stores. There are some great stores online though! Good luck with your new business!
