What You'll Need:
A big t shirt
A straight edge (optional)
Picking your t shirt: Bigger is usually better for scarf making. My white one (pictured here) was made out of a Medium Hane's Mens shirt. My suggestion is to pick a bigger one if you want to loop it. Also, if it's made of plain cotton versus 'jersey' will make a difference in how your scarf feels, moves and looks. Patterns, stripes or graphics can also provide visual interest to your scarf without any extra work.
- First lay your t shirt on a flat surface. A table is good.
- Like fig. A shows, cut off the bottom hem and from arm pit to pit. You don't need this fabric. Save it for another project or use it as rags.
- Now you will have basically a tube of fabric. As fig. A shows, use your scissors to cut strips from one end to the other, leaving about an inch or so of fabric uncut at one side. I suggest one inch strips, but you can vary the widths to give a different look.
- Now you will have what looks like a bunch of fringe attached at one side. Part your loops and put them over one arm. You will now have a bunch of rings that should be attached at the top. (Should look like this!)
- Grabbing the bottoms of all the loops in the other hand- pullllllll. This will stretch the loops, curling them.You can change up the lengths of individual strands by pulling some more.
- Tah-dah! You're done.
