This Moebius scarf takes less than half an hour tomake and is fantastic either to make as an accessory for yourself or as a last minute gift for someone else.  You can wear it twisted once or twice around your neck depending on the effect that you want – and how warm you want to be!  I’ve also seen it called an infinity scarf.

 

Cutting requirements

All you need to make this scarf is a rectangle of fabric about 50″ by 20″ and thread.  It’s best to use a silky type of fabric so that it twists easily.

Make the scarf

Sew two seams to create a tube

Fold the rectangle in half along its length with right sides together, giving you a rectangle 50″ by10″.  Sew a seam along one short (10″) edge and the 50″ edge, creating a tube with one end open.  It is best to use a zigzag stitch for this seam because of the give in silky fabric.  Don’t worry if it gathers up slightly as you sew – it won’t show.

Push your hand down the tube of fabric, take hold of the end and pull back through to put the scarf right sides out.  Turn under a small hem at the open end to close the gap.  Pin, but don’t stitch at this stage.

Fold the other end of the scarf up level with the end you have just pinned.  Flip the top half of the scarf so that the bottom edge in the photo becomes the top edge.  You are putting a half twist in the top layer of scarf.

Line up the ends of the scard – the machine sewn end and the pinned end – and slipstitch across the end, making sure that you catch all four layers in your stitching.

You now have a continuous loop of fabric with a half twist in it – your own Moebius scarf.
