I have been getting requests on making a tutorial for a circle scarf. Now, I am not a very technical person more of a "just do it and see if it works" but I will do my best with measurements and all. I hope you enjoy  Grin

So, my sister wanted a circle scarf from American Apparell but they were selling it for almost fourty bucks!
They are cute but that is just insane..here is the link: http://store.americanapparel.net/rsa0503burn.html?cid=51
Crazy right? Anyways, I made her one instead and not only did I save money, but it was one of the most simple pieces of clothing I have ever whipped up.

1. Start with a peice of soft stretch cotton fabric that is about 50"x60"

The fabric I used was a bit smaller because I didnt have a big enough peice. Feel free to play with the measurements but I thing 50x60 would be good if you wanted to use it as a dress or shirt like American Apparell does.
2. Fold it in half hot dog style, right sides together.

Pin and sew the open edge.
3. Turn right side out and it will be a big tube.

4. Next, fold one of the sides in so that the edge is folded and not raw.

Insert The other end of the tube into the folded end and pin.

Once you have everything pinned and the seam looks nice and straight, sew it up! Make sure to use a thread that matches your scarf because it will show.
I did a zigzag stitch and sewed some extra decoritive stripes around the outside of mine for fun.

Enjoy your new circle scarf! Whew, that was easy Grin

You can wear it so many different ways! Go to the american apparrell webpage to get more ideas.
It is cute to wear it as a hood too!
Thanks for looking! I hope that helps. If you make your own circlescarf, please post pics I would love to see different variations.
And p.s. I took the last picture in my sisters room (the only one w/a mirror) so that is totally not my mess  Wink lol.
Have a good day.

I just went to the site and found the video that showed different ways to wear it.  It is so cool!  I have to be somewhere at 7 tonight and I think I am going to go make one of these right now to wear, I am so excited!

The dimensions in the description there said the whole thing is 50" long and anywhere from 56-70 inches wide.  I think I have the perfect fabric for this.  I will post if it turns out good!

ooh. I'm gonna do this. My thing has been scarves since I saw the patchwork one featured a few months ago. I can't knit,crochet, embroider or sew by hand. I can run the sewing machine however.
 Last weekend I made a scoodie for the first time. This is going  to be so much easier. Is the AA version made of some type of t shirt material?

Thanks for the tut with pics! I'm so visual, that I needed it, even though it's pretty simple. I can't wait to start one!

Okay, so I've been browsing this site for ages; I love checking out knitting patterns and basic t-shirt recons. But I literally joined today just to thank you for this tut.
I made a circle scarf with your tut (first time using a sewing machine too!) and I am IN LOVE with it Smiley
