|IN THIS POST, I'M WORKING WITH THE TWO SCARVES IN THE MIDDLE|
For some reason, I don’t like the single loop look on me. Some people can pull off the look, but I’m not one of those people. :) I look fashionable and I feel more confident with two loops. The two scarves I wanted to turn into infinity scarves weren’t long enough for two loops. So, I bought a quarter of dark grey fleece that matched both “feels like cashmere” scarves.

I had the intention of buying similar “feels like cashmere” fabric, but I couldn’t locate that anywhere in the fabric store and I didn’t know the technical term for the material. Luckily, the store held a fabulous fleece sale and I spotted the dark grey fleece.

My original plan of finding similar “feels like cashmere” fabric was tossed out the window when I realized I would pay less than $1 for grey fleece to refashion two scarves into infinity scarves. At this point, I really didn’t care about having two different types of fabric. I spent 41 cents for a minor fix — I’m a happy girl.
|THE NEW SEAM WITHOUT THE FRINGES!|
With the grey fleece, I cut a square to match the width of the scarf. Fleece doesn’t fray or unravel, right? I’m thinking no since I have a billion fleece tie-blankets and none of them have frayed or unraveled. So, I decided to skip hemming the fleece sides and and simply sewed the scarf ends to the fleece (obviously cutting off the fringes). And presto!
|SO PRETTY! I LOVE IT!|
I have two new infinity scarves for the winter. I really like the small grey block breaking up the original pattern a bit. I really don’t want to learn 52 ways to knot a scarf – I just want a scarf to make me look fabulous.
