Cute Scarf

I found this cute scarf and tutorial over at fleecefun.com go check out the website!

Saturday Morning Scarf – fleece scarf tutorial

You can make a cosy scarf that is a combination of Jersey and Knit - comes with video tute!Follow Me on PinterestThis fleece scarf tutorial has a new twist - jersey knit ruffles! You can make a warm, comfortable scarf that is perfect for wearing on Saturday morning.
You’ll need:
1/3 yard fleece
1/2 yard jersey knit (t-shirt fabric)
Rotary cutter, ruler and mat
Thread

There is no need to download a free pattern here, this pattern is so simple – none is needed!

Video tutorial here, written below:

1 – Cut out pieces

Taking your rotary cutter and mat cut the following strips :
From the fleece cut 3 strips that are 3 inches wide (and 60 inches long)
From the jersey knit cut 6 strips that are 2.5 inches wide ( and 60 inches long)
Tip: don’t have a large cutting mat? Just use a plastic office chair mat – it’s soft plastic so it won’t hurt your blade, and it can take abuse.

2 – Prep the knit pieces and lettuce edging (optional)


Sew three of the knit strips together - place wrong side to right sides (the the pieces of fabric are overlapping about .5 inches) and then sew together with a straight stitch, Repeat with the other three strips.
While this step is optional, this edging really adds to the body and “waviness” of the scarf. You can use a serger to make the edging or…..
if you are like me and don’t own a serger you can make “fake lettuce edging”.
To make fake lettuce edging, take one of your knit strips, begin to fold over edge (about and 1/8 to 1/4 of and inch) and sew along the edge using a wide zig zag stitch, that is close together (not quite a satin stitch, but tighter than the normal setting on you machine).
Sew, gently stretching the cloth before and after the sewing foot all the way down the edge.
Note: Practice this technique on some scraps to get it down before you try it on your cloth. Heavier knits tend to do this better than very light knits. Also it doesn’t have to be perfectly even – it won’t be noticeable on the scarf!

3 – The fleece Section


Be sure to cut off the about 2 inches off the ends of the fleece strips.
Then, sew the fleece pieces end to end using the same technique we did with the knit - place wrong side to right sides (the the pieces of fabric are overlapping about .5 inches) and then sew together with a straight stitch.

4 – Begin to bring it all together


starting at one end of the scarf pin the knit on top of the fleece (wrong side to right side so the fabric is stacked and overlaps .5 inches. Pin all the way down and curve around the bottom (see picture)
Sew on using a straight stitch. Then starting at other side, repeat, making sure you have both ends with knit.

5- Add the scrunch


Using a basting stitch, ( a long stitch that isn’t finished on the ends) sew down one side the scarf to gather (do this in three sections, using the overlap seams of the fleece as a natural break, I recommend doing this in three sections as the scarf is long and there is a lot of gathering to do. ). Do the same on the other side
Gather the scarf to the “scrunchiness” you want on both sides.
Tip: This is a good thing to do while watching a movie. May I recommend “To Catch a Thief” with Carry Grant and Grace Kelley? =)

6 – Set the scrunch


Now that you have your scarf gathered just the way you want it – it’s time to make sure it stays that way. Using a medium width, but slightly shorter zig sag stitch, over your basting stitch all the way down the scarf. Trim your thread and you are finished!
