This is a great beginner sewing project because there's no real pattern to follow and you can piece together the sweaters any way you'd like!
Old or thrifted sweaters (I used 3 sweaters and 2 sleeveless tops)
Most of my sweaters were larger sizes, so I was able to cut a 15 inch wide piece from the front and back on all of them. The most important thing to remember is to cut all your sweater pieces in a perfect rectangular (or square shape). If the edges are uneven, your scarf will be crooked.
For some of the pieces I created a colorblock. Be creative! As long as the width remains the same on every piece, you can do anything.
I used pieces that included the original ribbed hem as the ends of the scarf.
You can make the scarf any length you'd like. I made mine 140 inches, so I could wrap it around my neck a few times and the ends would still be long.
