15 Easy DIY Scarves That Anyone Can Make

There are a lot of crappy things about winter. The freezing of limbs, the lack of sunshine, and the havoc it wreaks on my hair and skin are just some of the things that make me dislike it. That being said, one of the things that I love about winter is scarves.

Give me any kind of scarf to wrap up in and I’ll be happy. It can be a blanket scarf, a super skinny style, an infinity one, or a cozy knitted neck warmer. There are so many different scarves you can choose from at stores, but it is also worth remembering DIY versions.

If you’re wondering, “Why would I make a scarf when I can go and buy one?” Let me remind you that when you DIY one, you end up with a one-of-a-kind scarf, and that, my friends, is priceless.

Another great thing about DIY scarves is that there are so many different tutorials. Of course there are some complicated ones that require you to be an expert crafter who has their own craft room, but there are others where you don’t even need to pick up a pair of knitting needles. And those are some of my favorites. These are the super simple DIY scarves that anyone can do. That includes you, missy.

1. Got a sweater that ain’t looking so hot anymore? Turn it into a scarf. You can pretend you knit it all if you want. I won’t tell.
