DIY: Knotted Double-Layered Scarf from XL Men's tee

Picture of DIY: Knotted Double-Layered Scarf from XL Men's tee
I got the XL Men’s tee from a discount store for just $2. The scarf was inspired by the Knotted Loop Scarf by Country Road. It costs 69.95AUD! (-_-x)

Materials required:
1 XL tee
A pair of scissors
Sewing tools (either a sewing machine for a quickie or needle and thread if you want to do hand sewing!)

Step 1: Cut

Cut your tee according to the picture. A and B should be about the same width and C is from the sleeves.

One tee will yield 2 As, 2 Bs (the second one is underneath), 2 Cs and 1 D.

Step 2: Fold and sew

Get A and open it up. There should be an open side where the C/the sleeves were cut off.

Fold A into half, lengthwise, with the RIGHT side of the fabric facing each other, such that the open sides meet at the dotted line.

Sew along the dotted line.

Open A up and you should get a rectangular piece of fabric. Do the same as above for the other piece of A. 

Step 3: Sew

Put the 2 pieces of A together, with the RIGHT side of the fabric facing each other and so that the ====, ++++ and .... are in line with each other.

Sew along the ==== lines together and then open the piece up.

Step 4: Fold and sew

Fold the piece lengthwise such the ++++ side meets with the …. side with the RIGHT side of the fabric facing each other. The picture shows only one piece of A. The other one is out of the frame. The 2 pieces of A form a very long piece of fabric.

Sew ++++ and …. sides together.

Step 5: Turn inside out

Turn this long piece of 2 As inside out and you will get a long tube of fabric with all the clean seams on the outside.

Step 6: Cut

Get C and cut the seams so that it opens up as shown in the picture.

Step 7: Sew

Get one C and one B. Line the sides ==== and ++++ together, with the RIGHT side of the fabric facing each other. Sew ==== and ++++ together.

Do the same for the other B and C.

i am so sorry! i know the instructions aren't that easy to follow because of my bad writing!
Great work, both at making the scarf and at saving all that money! I'm sure I have some t-shirts around I could use - ones that I don't wear anymore but the fabric's too nice to use as a rag just yet.... must go check the cupboards!!
