Upcycled Sweater Scarf Tutorial

Here is ANOTHER way to use up your felted sweaters.  This is such a fun, easy project to make.  I get comments on this scarf every time I wear it.

Upcycled sweater scarf tutorial:

The most time consuming part is cutting out the squares.

1- Cut out 16 – 18 squares that measure 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches.  Use sweaters that have been felted.  (shrunk down by washing in very hot water and dried in the dryer)

2- Arrange the squares in a pattern that suites you.  Mix and match colors, textures and patterns that feel good to your eye.  Then stack them up in that order.  Starting with the piece on top, place two pieces together and pin in place.

3- Using a 1/4 inch seam allowance, simply sew along pinned edge. Back stitch at the beginning and end of seam.  No need to worry about the edges fraying if the sweater has been felted.

4- Open those pieces up and place the next square on top, right sides together.  Pin in place and sew the seam.  Repeat this process until all pieces are sewn together and the scarf is the length that you desire.  Ta dah!  Now wasn’t that fun and easy!
