Infinity Scarf /Circle Scarf Out Of A Sweater
My favorite D.I.Y. and easy as ever! great for gifts and great for people like me that have way to many sweaters! here is what you will need
- Old sweater, the bigger the better for the wrap around effect
- needle and thread.
First stretch the bottom of the sweater . This somewhat helps the length.
Second find a point where you want to cut the sweater and cut evenly across.
Third (optional) fold the frays down and sew the top across. You can always just fold them in
Lastly Style and enjoy!

Allow Me To Re Introduce Myself <3
My grandmother had these really big circle glasses. They were reading glasses ,with prescription and I used to wear them around school pretending I was some elegant woman from the 60’s or the 80’s whatever I was in the mood for that day. No matter how much they gave me a headache, I continued to wear them with no care in the world, I loved those glasses. Big sunglasses for some reason meant some sort of power to me, every woman I grew up seeing wearing them including my grandmother was a symbol of power, sex, control, elegance ,style and grace and somehow I always felt that way in my retro shades.
