Happy Holidays, Pirate Friends! We are excitedly back for another year and another round of holiday freebies to share with you! Over the years, we’ve compiled different tutorials and patterns that we think would make *perfect* gifts for your friends and family. Curious about what we’ve already released in the way of holiday freebies? Head right here to see all of them: Holiday Freebies Roundup.
Today, we are bringing you the: Braided Infinity Scarf!!
If you were looking for a quick gift to give someone, look no further. Because this “braided” infinity scarf just might do the trick! I don’t want to toot my own horn just yet, but I think you might love this even more than the Hidden Pocket Infinity Scarf from a couple of years ago. We will see, won’t we? 😉
- Two (2) 18″ L x 54″ or (width of fabric) W pieces of knit fabric
Lay one piece with right side facing upward, and fold in half meeting the long edges together, right sides together.
Sew along long, raw edge, using 1/2″ seam allowance.
Turn piece right side out.
Repeat with second fabric piece.
Lay one tube of fabric in half, in a “u”-shape
Lay second tube of fabric on top, in a similar “u”-shape.
Reach your hand over the top fabric loop, and through the bottom fabric loop.
Gather both ends of the top fabric with your hand.
Pull the ends through the bottom loop.
Separate the top fabric ends.
Put your hand through the bottom loop and grab the end furthest from you.
Pull end through the loop.
Put your hand through the bottom loop and now grab the end closest to you.
Pull end through the loop.
Adjust the “braids” to your liking.
Open up the ends and match the opposite sides to one another.
With right sides together, match up the two seams along the raw edges.
Pin / clip around the opening, matching right sides together.
**This step is a little tricky. You won’t be able to align the two pieces all the way around. Go as far as you can without stretching out your fabrics.
Using 1/2″ seam allowance, sew around entire raw edge. Leaving an opening for pulling/turning the fabric.
Pull the fabric through, to turn everything right sides out.
Tuck the seam allowances into the opening.
Pin and, using your favorite stitch, close the opening.
In case you consider yourself a more “visual learner” here’s a video tutorial that walks you through the entire tutorial, start-to-finish.
Check out what our fabulous testers were able to create with this very same tutorial!
I la-la-love when you share your photos with me! Head over to the Patterns for Pirates Facebook Group and show us what you’ve made!
Happy Holidays, Pirates!
