  • How to make a scarf. Scrappy Upcycled Wool Scarf Tutorial - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gathered a couple of wool sweaters in coordinating colors. I found 2 sweaters at my local thrift store, and the pink one had been felted, just slightly, which was just fine with me!

    Using a serger to make the knit ruffle, all you have to do is pull or stretch the sweater as it is going under the machine foot. If you want the serged stitch to be dense than shorten up the stitch length on the machine.

    Serge and while pulling the bottom hems of the sweaters.

    Cut out panels from the 2 sweaters. Each panel measured about 8 inches wide and as long as I could possibly get. I even opened up the sleeve and found a nice long 8 inch wide piece there too.

    After I had several segments cut, I lined up the pieces the way I wanted them and then started serging the seams together. Note: If you look really close at the photo, you can see that I have serged the brown piece to a non-ruffled pink piece, then placed a ruffled pink piece overlapping that seam but meeting at the top of that non-ruffled piece.

    Now seam the 2 or actually 3 pink pieces wrong sides together.

    Piece the scarf together until you have about 70 inches total in length and you are done!
