i went into american apparel and fell in love with their circle scarves. but they must be joking if they think i'll pay thirty dollars for something i can do AND already have the fabric for.
so i made one, like a true craftster.
its a little bit longer than theirs, but i enjoy it.

wrapped around three times

as a scoodie, although i probably won't ever wear it like this.

hope you like it.


a tutorial was requested, so here it is. its super easy so i hope i explained it well.
basically, you cut a long rectangle, and sew the one seam together. the measurements are loosely interpreted, since they weren't really..measured. but mine was AROUND 75 inches and a little over a food wide, which you can modify to your own preference. since its such an odd cut, you'll probably be able to make more than one from the fabric you buy! feel free to ask questions.

Tutorial, pretty please? From what I saw on their Web site, it looks  pretty simple, yet so versatile! Now I wanna make one ... but I've never seen one in person and have no idea what the measurements would be.


If at first you don't succeed, go buy more fabric.

i absolutely love it. and i agree they're crazy to charge 30 bucks for that. but the people who pay for it probably arent as craft-inclined as others

I totally agree that while it's way cute, it's not worth $30, especially after seeing your attempt! It's way cute! I like it a lot. I would love to see how you made it, if you get the chance!

Great job, it looks fabulous.

A good couple years ago my friend gave me a knitted scarf like that. It was soo soft. I have in my closet. It could stretch to fit my whole body and it was about 5 feet long lol

Nice job, it looks reeeeally cute on you! Cheesy i'm in love with scarves but unfortunately i can't wear them because they just look really awkward on me D: oh well. at least with your tut i can make a bunch and give them to my scarf-compatible friends  Tongue

Let there be thread!

Sweet! I love it! Would you recommend using some sort of soft, stretchy fabric(t shirtish) or regular fabric?

What would life be without imagination?

technically, this would really work with any fabric.
but the thing is, if the fabric is softer it will drape more and in my opinion, be comfier.
i'd go for a fabric that just feels good and is a little drapey.
