infinity t-shirt scarf

Pin It
Last Friday night I sat down to make the bachelorette boas (cause I'm cool like that on a Friday night) before the next nights activities. Now, before I dig in to any project I like to make sure I have a bottle of wine and a snuggie I'm situated so I don't have to get up in the middle of my creation process.  Yes, it's a process. Well, I realized that I was cold.  I was already in my fancy Friday night ensemble (workout pants/tank/sweater--no really, livin it up!) so I didn't really have another layer to add.....I decided to throw on a scarf.  You know, like 1 out of the 900 that I have hanging behind the closet door.  Apparently those were not cool enough for what did I do?  I think you know where this is headed--I MADE a scarf. Seriously.  Total impulse crafter.

*side note!  I live in Michigan, where it was 50 degrees last Friday--JUNE 10th--and I would have been happy in a snowsuit.

So, how does one just whip up a scarf in under 20 minutes?  You know, when she has a night of work ahead of her?  Well, she grabs an old sweater, a pair of ginghers and gets to it.

Now, I forgot to take pictures of the creation process on this gray guy, so I made another one tonight to gift to my food stylist friend Laura ( for reals, check out her work!) who is fantastically fashionable, in a rich hippie sort of way, and snapped away.

Enough of my ramblings--on with the goods!

and PS, this shirt is actually blue, not periwinkle.  Gross.  I do not have a $500 real camera.

ingredient list
- sweater or t-shirt--I'd say no bigger than a large or your circle will get OOC
- scissors

Step One:  Lay shirt flat and cut long strips across, measuring 1" a part, around 14-16 strips is ideal .  *tip, make little slits every 1" then cut into long strips.  You'll also need to cut one 4" inch long strip (still 1"H) for every long strip you get.

Step Two:  cross individual strips a total of 2 times so your circle has four rings total.  
they look like donuts--my FAV!  
Step Three:  Remember the part where I totally mumbled something about extra 4" strips back in step one?  Yeah, you're gonna need those now....use one 4" strip to connect 2 of your circles, double knot.  Keep doing this until all the circles have been joined together, making an infinity loop.
tie tight!!!

officially infinitified.
Step four:  Trim off any hangy-part of the connector strips.
Step five:  Rock it GIRL!!!!   Rock it like you MADE it--cause ya did!  

Told you it was actually blue!  :) 

 And there you have it!  I hope Laura likes it :)

As always, THANK YOU for stopping by B.Cheniful!  You're the bestest!

Big (It's blue!) Smile,

Super cute! I do have a "real" camera thanks to my husband and I LOVE it! I am still getting to know it and made myself a 365 promise to try to use it every day!

I don't have a real camera either and am hoping for a day that I can put beautiful pictures on my blog instead of ugly ones.

This is really really cute. I love scarves and love it even more that it is a no sew. With baby #2 literally coming Thursday I am looking for some easy no sew things to make to keep myself sane over the next few weeks.
