Easy Knit Infinity Cowl

I thought I would share with you all a post I did for Adrianne at Happy Hour Projects at the beginning of last month.  Just in case you missed it.

In case you did see this one, I am guest posting at CSI Kids it’s a fun tutorial for making a kazoo with a TP roll.  It’s such a fun new sight I hope you can check it out.

Today I’m going to show you how to make the simplest Infinity cowl for the fall.  Seriously this is one of those projects that it takes longer to write up the post than it does to make the scarf.
Start with some knit fabric.  I made a Maxi Dress in the summer so I am using scraps left over from that.  If you don’t have any scraps you could use an old t-shirt.  I used knit because it wont fray, so I didn’t have to hem it or finish off my edges.
Please excuse the little foot in the photo.  My kiddos get just as excited as I do to make things.
Straiten up all your edges  {if you need tips on that I have a tutorial} Then lay it out and put a twist in the bottom.  The strip of fabric I used is 46 inches long and 9 inches wide.  You can make yours longer or shorter if you want.  The longer you make it the more times you can wrap it around your neck.
With front sides together sew a strait seam and then a zig-zag stitch so it has a little stretch to it.
If yo have a surger you could just surge it.  
That’s it!  Put it on to dress up your favorite sweater and jeans.

You can wear it doubled up or single.  Even though it’s a light weight fabric it help keep the chill off your neck. 
Thanks for stoppin’ by and hangin’ out.


  1. So funny – just today I have decided to start wearing scarf/cowls for indoors. I always find my chest/neck gets chilled. This is super cute. Also love the bit of lace peeking out the bottom of your top. Very pretty.

  4. Well that looks easy enough even IIII could do it.
    And tell Terry that once you start wearing a scarf in the house, it means you’re old. LOL No, wait, I’ll tell her. 🙂

  5. So cute, I am loving all of the scarves this season!


  6. Cute! I like the stripes!

  7. Thanks for hosting this lovely community, & God bless!


  1. […] love the look of the long chunky infinity scarves.  I made one out of light weight knit fabric, so it was only a matter of time before I had to crochet one.  I love the way it turned out! […]
