Have you seen the movie "Inception"?
Me either....but I live with people (Sweet Pea) who LOVE it.
So, when I made a scarf within a scarf.....it had to be the
You'll need 3/4 yard stretch knit. Will also work with fleece.
See Suzanne's version in fleece. Very cute. I am sure I CASE'd this scarf from her.
Cut 2 pieces of stretch knit 8 x 60 inches; sew ends together to make one long 8 x 120 inches.
Cut 3 pieces of stretch knit 6 x 75 inches; sew ends together to make one long 6 x 150 inches.
Gather 8 inch wide piece of fabric by stitching down the middle. Use a long stitch when gathering. I bunched it up and I pushed it through the needle as I go along.
Your finished length should be about 60 inches.
Do the same thing for the same thing for the 6 inch wide piece.
The finished length should also be about 60 inches. I will be a little fuller than the 8 inch wide piece.
Turn under the ends of each layer.....stitch to finish.
Pin the 6 inch piece on top of the 8 inch;
adjust the gathers so that both layers are the same length.
Stitch down the middle of both pieces.
Sew down the middle again using a zigzag stitch to secure the gathers.
Next time I will stitch a piece of ribbon to the backside of the stitching, just to make sure the stitching doesn't pull out.
There you go....Inception Scarf...a scarf within a scarf. Sweet.
My girlfriend ALMOST didn't get this for her birthday. Sweet Pea loved it so much.
