Four yards, four projects: project 2! The Square Scarf Tutorial

no-sew square bandanna flannel scarf tutorial

Last week I showed you how to make the first project in my Four Yards: Four Projects series, the DIY No-Sew Blanket Scarf. It was a huge hit! You guys loved it and I've been wearing it all the time lately. And it's about time, because it's been finally getting cold up here in Idaho!

Today I'm going to have you take a little more then one yard of your remaining two yards of flannel fabric, and make this super simple square (or bandanna style) scarf. Still no sewing involved! Ready to make your own? Let's go!

Once you've cut yourself out your 44 inch square of flannel, you're ready to fray the edges. I used the same technique I showed you how to do in my detailed tutorial last week, and gave the edges a generous soft fringe. If you missed that tutorial, you can find how to fray the edges of your flannel neatly over here! 

Once I frayed my edges, I was done with my scarf! 

The hardest part about this square scarf was figuring out how to wear it, actually. I fiddled with it, fairly confused until I thought of it like a bandanna. The it clicked! You fold it in half like this, to create a triangle:
Once you've made your triangle, you place the large 90 degree points down towards your belly button, and wrap the small points up around your neck. Tie gently, and you're good to go!

I like having both the blanket scarf size and the smaller square scarf to play with. The blanket scarf has way too much bulk to tie it this way, and I think it makes a fun addition to a fall or winter outfit when you might need to be indoors too. 

I hope you had fun making this scarf too! Keep checking back for projects 3 and 4 in the next couple weeks!
