12 Days of Christmas 2022: Infinity Scarf and Nursing Cover
It's the 7th Day of Christmas and we are returning with another "Post from Christmas Past!" This one is perfect for the new mama in your life (or for you, because its also just a really cute scarf!) Originally published in our 12 Days of Christmas from 2014, we are so excited to share this scarf with a new audience!
Today our free pattern/tutorial comes to us from Emily Wise, one of our tween pattern designers. I know that girls of all ages are going to love this style, and especially those with new little-ones-on-the-way like Emily! Here she is with today's tutorial:
Knits are soft and cuddly, a perfect fabric for an infinity scarf. I needed one to double as a nursing cover, so whether you’re a hip tween or stylish mamma, you’ll love this addition to your accessories. These also make a wonderful gift for girls of all ages!
1 yard of 60 inch knit fabric (instructions for double and single sided fabric)
Construction for double sided knit fabric:
1. Lay out your fabric to its full width and fold the 36” sides to meet. There will be two “right sides” of your fabric, so either side will do.
2. Pin the 36” sides together and sew with a 1” seam allowance.
3. Now we will fold the seam allowance similar to how you create bias tape.
A. Open the seam.
B. Fold the Raw Edges to the center and press.
C. Fold the right side over the left side and pin in place.
4. Sew 1/8” from the edge down the length of the scarf.
Now both sides of your scarf have a finished seam.
If you are making a scarf out of single sided knit, you only need to complete steps 1 and 2, but you can either use a serger or a regular seam allowance. You don’t need to finish the other edges of your scarf because we are using knits!
See pics below for how to wear as a scarf and nursing cover!
I hope you enjoy making some awesome infinity scarves for yourself, friends and family this gift-giving season! ~ Emily
