Part 1 of No Tie Chemo Scarf
Tutorial for No Tie chemo Scarf.
You can find the pattern for $2.50 in my Etsy store. You may read here why the patterns are no longer free http://snipriphooray.blogspot.com/2017/01/good-deeds-will-not-go-unpunished.html
The pattern for personal use or for charitable purposes, you may not sell the pattern or items made from it.
You will need:
1/2 yard (18 inches) medium to lightweight knit fabric at least 46" wide
(If you are making more than one scarf then you can nestle the pattern pieces and you will need less fabric per scarf)
7'' of 1/2 inch wide elastic
hand sewing needle
mad skills (only kidding)
Print out all the pattern pieces. Set your printer to "no-scaling". Use the " 2" test square" to make sure you pattern printed out correctly.
Cut out pattern pieces and tape them together lining up the letters and diamonds.
Place pattern on fold of fabric.
Cut out leaving the shaded triangle.
Finish the straight edge by serging or use zig-zag or other stitch on your regular machine. Finishing the raw edge is not mandatory since most knits will not fray.
Fold 1'' hem to the wrong side of your fabric, press and stitch. You can use the stretch stitch, zig-zag, double needle - anything that will take a little bit of stretch.
Trim off the little shaded triangle area from the pattern. You can do that by placing a ruler on the scarf tail and marking a line on the hem. Or you can cut the triangle out from the pattern, fold up the hem on the pattern and place the pattern on your fabric and marking the line.
