Easiest Infinity Scarf Ever

This was made by joining two sweater sleeves together.  The wrists go at the back of your neck which is nice because it reduces the bulk.  The ruffly scarf below was made from the front of the same sweater, and I was able to get another one out of the back, which I gave away as a gift.  Three scarves from one sweater!

Great job using up the sweater. I am curious about the ruffly scarf too. Do tell.

Thanks! You cut the sweater into strips vertically, about 5 inches wide. Sew them together in one long strip. Zig -zag the side edges and the seams so that it doesn't unravel and so that it gets the lettuce edge. Then pin accordion pleats going all the way down. You grab about an inch of fabric into the pleat, and make them a few inches apart. Decide if you like the length and repin accordingly. Then sew a straight stitch over the pleats, in one long seam all the way down the scarf. I do two long seams all the way down, about an inch apart for stability.
