This was perfect project to use up some of my extra T-shirt yarn from the crocheted T-shirt rugs. See the diagram to the left for instructions on how to make T-shirt yarn. I used two T-shirts for this yarn. I plan on cleaning out my closets and repurposing a lot of T-shirts into these comfy scarfs. They make fast, inexpensive, easy, and beautiful gifts as well!

Cast on 10
Arm knit until scarf is ~40" long
Cast off, leaving ~20" long tail
Use tail to seam the cast off edge to cast on edge creating an infinity scarf
It was fun looping the stitches over my arms and transferring from one arm to another to add rows. The scarf grew so fast, it only took me about 30 minutes from cast on to cast off. Check out the pictures below taken during the process. It was especially difficult to get pictures while knitting, the two shown were the most successful attempts at me setting a timer and wedging the camera under my chin.
My scarf was long enough to wear open or wrap once around my neck. It is super warm and comfy and I can't wait to make more!
