Infinity Scarf

Infinity scarves are very popular. They are called infinity because they are connected at each end to form a circle. Usually they are made out of a fabric with a stretch, so you can double and triple strand them around the neck comfortably.

I have knit these type of scarves in the past, but I've decided to sew some using my serger. The edging I am using is called a napkin edge.

Infinity scarves can be worn double stranded for a cowl or necklace effect.

Or, you can wrap them around the neck three times for a neckwarmer!

Another nice look is to wear an infinity scarf single stranded, so you can cover the shoulders for a shawl effect.

This is so lovely. I was reading about sergers tonight. I wish you lived nearby so that you could show me how to hem a scarf. I just got an order from Spoonflower. It's my Chinese Grandma's in Silk. I love it, but I am clueless how to sew a hem. I am going to find a place nearby that sells and teaches how to use a serger.
