It’s getting colder and I’m unhappy about it. In lovely Pennsylvania, it stays cold from about Sep-Mar, give or take a month. That means you have to layer up if you want to be comfortable.
Personally, I like scarves and probably have too many of them. But they’re great for fall and winter weather so I stock up. Recently, I started make some of my own. However, I’m not a big fan of sewing, as most of you know, so I like the no-sew method.
Want to make one? It’s SUPER easy. Keep reading.
T-shirt scarf supplies
- soft t-shirt
Use an old t-shirt or check out Goodwill for cheap options. I recommend size Larger or bigger. I chose Large for this one. You should also consider a neutral color so that scarf matches more of your clothing. White, black, brown, gray and beige are all good options.
Step 1: flatten your tshirt
Lay the tshirt flat on a table or flat surface.
Don’t worry about ironing. The scarf looks better without it.
Step 2: cut out the bottom of the shirt
Cut across the shirt right below the arms.
Then, cut off the bottom section of the shirt above the hem.
Now, you’ll have a scarf that’s ready to wear! I like to keep the sewn sections at the back of my neck and bottom of the scarf.
There’s also an option to make two of these t-shirt scarves and link them together for nice infinity scarf, but that’s a tutorial for another day.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Leave them in the comments.

That’s such a good idea. My husband’s old t-shirts would be perfect. This is a better way of me recycling them than trying to make t shirt yarn.
Thanks! Tshirt yarn is good too, possibly just more time consuming. I like these scarves because they’re great for fall. Nice and light.
