Looking for a fast, easy gift for the holidays? I have the perfect solution! An infinity snap scarf made from TÉLIO’s Bamboo Knit. We recently added some novelties in this content with stripes and dots and they coordinate perfectly with our solid bamboo knit. You can view the available options here.I picked TÉLIO’s Bamboo Stripe, Style 34020 col. 07 to go with TÉLIO’s Bamboo Knit, Style 29480 col. 49. As you may remember, heather grey is one of my favourite shades. Luckily, we have two heather grey options in our solid bamboo knit!
– You will need 2 meters (2.2 yards) of a knit fabric of your choice
– Snap tape – enough to run the width of your scarf. Mine is 41cm (16”) wide.
– Approximately 15cm (6”) of interfacing.
– Thread to match
There are many versions of the infinity snap scarf online. I wanted to get more use out of this fabric by making this scarf narrower, and I used the excess fabric for some long johns.But you can make your scarf extra wide if you prefer!
1. Lay your fabric one on top of the other and measure 41cm (16”) wide along the 2m (2.2 yd) length. Try to avoid using the selvedge of the fabric. To avoid your edges curling, start sewing the same day you cut it out.
2. Cut two strips of interfacing slightly smaller than the width of the scarf. Press it to one end of the scarf on both pieces. This is to help stabilize the knit when applying the snap tape.
3. Pin right sides together. With knits, it can be hard to tell which side is the right side. Simply take your cut edge and pull slightly. It should curl to the right side.
4. Leaving the interfaced end open, sew the other three seams closed. Be sure to clip the corners of the seam allowance if you are not able to use a serger/overlock machine.
5. As in Step 2, cut another two strips of interfacing and press them to your other (sewn) edge to stabilize this side.
6. Flip the scarf right side out and press.
7. On your open end, turn and press the seam allowance in 1 cm (2/5”) on the open edge.
8. Sew your opening closed as close to the edge as possible.
9. Place the snap tape along each end of the scarf, and make sure the male and female snaps align properly before you begin sewing. Depending on the width of the tape, you might need to use a zipper foot to sew this on.
Now you have your infinityyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy (get it?) scarf.
