A journal entry
Today I’m making a few simple notes in my sewing journal (a.k.a. my blog) about this simple make.
A few months ago, with the help of enabler Sarah, I purchased a merino wool remnant (55cm x 150cm) from The Fabric Store (Melbourne) with the idea of a simple infinity scarf.
I’ve sewn infinity scarves from 150cm wide knit fabrics before, and on me, they hang too low in the front which significantly reduces the warmth factor. For this version, I trimmed the raw edges so they were straight and remove 25cm from one of the selvedges. The resulting cowl is the perfect size for me, I adore the colours and it’s already had lots of wear.

That’s the beauty of sewing – you can make things to fit you exactly. A very lovely scarf.
That’s so true Anna. And it’s usually those little tweaks that make all the difference.
So glad I made you buy it! 😉 xx
Me too. And thanks for the infinity scarf idea… it’s just perfect (all thanks to you!).
Such a fast project and wardrobe staple–can’t argue with that!
You are so right Sarah Jo… the satisfaction levels on this make were very high and it is already a wardrobe workhorse.
