Circle Scarf

I love circle scarves!  I have been wanting to make my own for a while.  I saw that 
American Apparel has some really cool ones but, for $37--no way.   I knew I could make it for much cheaper.  A few months ago I found yellow knit fabric at Walmart of all places for $1.50 a yard on clearance.  Yep this was my chance.  I bought the whole bolt.  
You can wrap it up.  Amy this smile is for you!
 Or wear it long.  (My husband was trying to make me laugh.)
Do you want to make your own?  It's easy!  I followed this awesome and easy tutorial over on Come on Ilene.  All you need is 2 yards of fabric cut into individual yards.  Like Ilene, I agree knit is ideal because it usually comes with a wider width than other materials.  This gives your scarf lots of body.  You only have to sew 2 seams!  There is no need to finish the edges because knit doesn't fray.  
I know what you are thinking and no it doesn't get much easier than that!

I even made one for my mini that wanted one to match her favorite shirt.

While I was at it I sewed a green one to match my new green earrings.  I have a few others in the works just because they are too easy not to make more.
