No Sew Rosette Scarf

The other day I decided to make a quick, minimal sewing, shirt. I basically just traced a shirt that I liked. I didn't finish the neck, sleeves, and hem since it was made of knit fabric. I was going to just let them roll. For some reason the neck didn't. I wanted to wear the shirt that day, but I didn't have time to hem the neck.

As you can see, I didn't look so great. I had a long piece of the fabric left, that I decided to wear as a scarf. I started playing with I and came up with this quick and easy way to ware a scarf. I'm probably not the first person to do this, but since it was new to me, I thought it might be fun and new for some of you! It only takes a minute or two to make.

All you need is a long scarf or long scrap of fabric. Mine was 18 inches wide and 7 ft long. You will also need an elastic hair band.

Slip the hair band over the scarf. Slide it down to about the middle of the scarf.

Roll one of the ends to make the center of the rosette.

It Should look like this.

Take the little "rose" and roll it into the other end of the scarf.

Now it should look like this - one big loop.

Cross the loop to make a figure eight. Notice the hair band is at the top of the eight.

Bring the rosette to the hair band and slip it under.

Twist the band around the rosette until it is tight.

You're done! I found that I liked the outer loop a little longer than the inner loop. The great part about using the hair band is that the scarf if adjustable and when your done wearing it, you can just untie it!

Pin It!
