Tutorial~ Hint of Ruffle Scarf~

A few posts ago, I did a sweater cardigan tutorial. I had some left over knit fabric from that project. Since I love the color so much, I decided to make a scarf out of it.

Here is what I did:

1. The left over fabric was 17" X 60" W. I cut 1" X 60" strip to make ruffles then I cut the strip in half. I then cut both ends of the 16" x 60" fabric diagonally. I set that aside.

2. I wanted to do something different with these ruffles, so I made a wavy cut in one side of each of the 1" strips. Then, I made the ruffles as usual.

3. I pinned the ruffles onto the edges of the scarf (16" x 60" fabric).

4. I used a zig-zag setting and sewed them together.

5. Ta da!

Since it is a thin knit fabric, I can pretty much enjoy the scarf all year round. This is super easy to make, it will be fun to have it in white... wait, brown, No! Wait!... sage green... All of them!


  1. SOOO Cute i love wearing scarfs All year! I seriously need to get a sewing machine! I'm missing out!

    Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. i love this technique!

    i will try to make this hem edge for a few jersey dresses i'm making for my girls...very cute!

  3. Love it! I can't wait to get my sewing machine set up and ready!

  4. What a fabulous scarf - so soft and what a lovely dusty rose(?) color. I have only basic sewing skills though, not sure how to use zigzag stitch on edges. Do you need a serger for this?

  5. Love the wavy edge and what it does for the ruffle when done. Very cute.
    You are making all this sweet stuff with ruffles and I am starting to get the itch to try it out myself. My only fear is it will turn out looking cute and then I will be a ruffle addict. : )
    Thanks for sharing your tutorial.
