DIY: Blanket Scarf

Blanket scarves have been on trend all winter long. I made a bunch for Christmas gifts and last weekend I picked up two yards of a bright cotton flannel plaid to brighten up my jacket through the rest of this polar vortex. By simply fraying the edges in no time you’ll have a fabulous blanket scarf in a color and pattern of your choice.

Material List: 
2 yards of your chosen fabric. I used cotton flannel from Joann Fabrics (7.99 /per yard)
Measuring Tape
Scissors
Needle.  

Step 1: Cut down the width of the fabric to 25” wide (x72” long).  Use the fabric’s plaid grid as a guide when cutting your fabric to help you create straight, clean cuts. 

Step 2: To create on the ends of the scarf, simply remove the fabric’s weft yarns (the yarns that run left to right) along the short side of the fabric. I used a needle to release the yarns. Continue removing yarns until you reach your desired fringe length. I decided on 1 ½” fringe. 

Step 3:
Repeat step 2 on the opposite end of the fabric. You should now have fringe on both of the short sides of the scarf.
