This no-sew scarf is super easy to make and ends up with a braided look. You can even have the kids in your life help you make them. I always end up with extra fleece from my sewing projects, so this was a great use for some of those leftovers.
- Circle template
Find a circle the size you want. (I used the lid of a large 3-wick candle that was 4.5″ across.) Trace the lid onto a piece of cardboard and cut it out to make your circle template.
Cut the Scarf Pieces
- Lay your fleece out and fold it in half so it is wide enough for the template to easily fit on it along the fold.
- Set the template on top of the fleece lined up with the folded edge.
- Cut out multiple pieces on the fold large enough for your template. I cut 24 for this one, you can make more or less depending on how long you want your scarf to be.
- Cut around the circle-do not cut the folded edge.
- Open up the folded circle pieces.
- Fold each outer edge in towards the middle where the two sides connect and make a small cut at the center about 1/2″ long.
- Repeat on the opposite side as well, then do this on all of your pieces.
Make Your “Braid”
- Fold your first piece in half at the original fold so that the cuts on either side match up.
- Take your second piece, fold it lengthwise, and slide it through the first piece.
- Continue pullling it through to the center and fold the second one in half to match up the two holes on that second piece.
- Continue this process with all of your pieces until your scarf it the length that you like it.
Finish the Ends
- Cut a couple of strips of fleece to make bows.
- On the starting end, slide the strip through the opening then tie it into a bow.
- At the opposite end, since there is not a fold, take a shorter piece and put it through the holes. Tie it in a knot, then slide the knot to the inside so it won’t be visible.
- Use the loop formed by this piece to put your other strip into and tie a bow.
Ta-da! You’re ready to brave that chilly weather!
