Making a fleece scarf is incredibly easy, whether for a gift, yourself or as a service project. Even older children can help, or make them alone. These economical and useful scarves are easily adapted for men, women, boys and girls, simply by the pattern or color of the fleece, using beads, how the ends are tied or left straight – the sky is the limit. Personalize this gift by matching the personality of who is going to wear this; making it a desired and much appreciated gift.
Supplies for Fleece Scarf:
At least ¼ yard fleece of desired thickness and pattern. (Good quality and thicker fleece is the best for this project)
Ruler or measuring tape
Marking pencil or chalk
Small crochet hook or pair of tweezers
Pony beads, optional
Cut fleece 9” in width and 54” to 60” length Trim endsLeave ends plain and as they are
Mark 3 inches from edge of fleece and place masking tape across to help gauge how far to cut and to keep each section even.
Cut at 1 inch intervals from the edge to the masking tape.Leave with cuts OR In the center of the top edge next to the masking tape, cut a small hole with the very tip of sharp scissors or use a seam ripper to make a small hole.Put the end into the hole
And pull through Continue across both ends of the width of the scarfThis is what it looks like on both sides of the scarf
Cut fleece 7 inches in width and 54” to 60” in lengthTrim off edgesMark 5 inches from the edge of the fleece and place masking tape across to help gauge how far to cut and to keep each section even.
Cut at 1 inch intervals from the edge to the masking tape.
Leave as is with cuts OR Using a small crochet hook (I used a 6/1.80mm, a size smaller would work well also), or the blunt end of tweezers, Push the fleece into the pony bead (a medium to large size bead would work best) and slide towards the top of the cut.Tie a knot, leaving about a ½” tail.Continue putting pony beads on the fringe on both ends of the scarf.Copyright Carrie Groneman, A Mother’s Shadow, 2013, 2014, 2015
