Upcycled Jersey Multi-Strand Infinity Scarf

The idea for this scarf came about when I had an abundance of tees that either my husband no longer likes or has sadly shrunk! {And it helps that I get a ton of sample tees from being a buyer, so we never have a shortage of them!}

What is even better about this project is...wait for it....no sewing required! Woohoo!! Makes it super easy to do.

What you will need:
1 old tee (the larger the better)
1 pair of sharp scissors
1 ruler

Start with a large tee. Any old shirt will do that does not have graphics past the armpits! Make sure it's seamless. If not, don't sweat it- that can be the point where you wrap all strands together!

Cut off the bottom hem of the tee. Then cut 1 inch wide strips horizontally across the shirt from bottom to armpit. You can cut as many strips as you would like and if you want you can also make them varying widths. The more strips, the more strands your scarf will have. If you want to be exact, you can measure each strip. I didn't measure, simply because I'm lazy and wanted to get it finished.

Save the bottom hem and set aside, this will be used at the end to wrap all the loops to make one scarf. 

Stretch all of the remaining loops until they become long and noodle looking, and the raw edges start to roll inwards.

Cut one end of the bottom hem so it becomes a long string. Cut like 5 inches from the bottom hem, knot it around the strands to secure them in place. Wrap the strip a few inches around the center of the scarf, and back over to meet the other ends. Knot the ends together tightly. Trim the loose ends and tuck the knot underneath the wrapped fabric.

If you want to get all fancy, you can opt to sew the bottom hem around the scarf so it's less bulky.
