DIY scarf from a sweater

You probably have an old sweater around that would be perfect for this DIY project. The « sweater-scarf » is very simple and is a creative idea that can look very different from one to the other. I think a large gauge, very loose knit would look fabulous too! You cut each sides and finish with an overlock or zig zag stitch, than you sew both sides together! It’s that simple!

- Old wool sweater

    I often go to London for vintage scarves. Shoreditch is really good. Also Peekaboo when they have sales on. Online I tend to watch and have picked up amazing scarves beautifully wrapped.
