Inspired by a Forever 21 scarf I bought a couple years ago, this shaggy scarf is a fall must-make. It’s so easy, all you have to do is know how to safely operate a pair of scissors.
- One L to 3XL sized shirt (for infinity scarves like this, I recommend the largest you have or can find at the thrift store)
- A good pair of scissors
Step One: I started by ombre-ing my t-shirt. Cut the top half off, starting at the sleeves. Then fold as shown below.
Step Two: Cut vertical strips starting at the side with the edges, but leave a couple inches at the top.
Step Three: Do this all the way across so you have a tube of strips. Stretch the strips out so they make tubes and unhem or trim any strips if needed. (You could also unhem/trim before cutting the strips; whichever you find easier)
Your scarf is ready! I love the way the ombre gives the scarf two distinct tones- it looks so cloudy and dreamy!
This one-step, no-sew, SUPER simple infinity scarf is so easy I can’t even convey in an analogy just how easy it is.
Just cut off the top starting at the sleeves, then cut off the bottom hem! Make sure you have an XL or larger shirt with no sideseams, and find the softest shirt possible. I got my shirt at the thrift store, but it was originally from Walmart, an Op pocket v-neck, sized XL. The larger the shirt, the bigger around it will be. Mine wraps comfortably but snugly around my neck twice, but if you prefer a scarf that hangs down on your chest, go with a 3XL if possible.
My scarf is super comfy and I cannot wait for the fall to wear it. Of course, it’s light, so depending on where you live, this could be a must-make summer accessory.
