Materials:
5/8 yard solid tangerine ruffled knit with 1"-wide ruffles (scarf)
Universal sewing machine needle
Orange polyester sewing thread

Finished scarf: about 11x95"

Yardages and cutting instructions are based on 48" of usable fabric width. Measurements include 1⁄4" seam allowances.

Cut the following pieces:

Cut strips parallel to the ruffles.

From solid tangerine ruffled knit, cut:
2 -- 11x48" strips

With wrong sides together, align strips along one short edge, making sure ruffles lie in the same direction. Stitch together strips using a scant 1/4" seam to make scarf unit.

To finish seam, fold scarf unit with right sides together along seam just sewn. Stitch 1/4" from fold, encasing first seam, to complete scarf.

 

About Ruffle Fabrics:

Ruffled knit fabric works well for making scarves because its raw edges will not fray. The ruffles run selvage to selvage across yardage that is 48" to 50" wide. In this project, the selvages double nicely as finished ends of the scarf.

Ruffle fabrics, made of polyester and spandex, come in many colors with ruffles in a variety of widths. Go to rufflefabric.com or call 801/376-4834 for more information or to order fabrics.
