Introduction: Simple No-sew Multi-Purpose Wrap

I saw this wrap for sale online for $42.50 and I knew it would be simple to make. am you need are 2 yards of a stretchy material like jersey knit and a pair of scissors. A measuring tape is also helpful but not necessary.

Step 1: How Simple Is This?

You will need:
Scissors
About two yards of stretchy fabric like a jersey knit.  This fabric will probably come in widths of 54: or 62 inches, either is fine
Something to measure with is also helpful.

Step 2: Lay Out Fabric for Cutting

Carefully fold fabric in half and then in half again. Make sure there are no creases in the fabric or it will mess up the next step.

Step 3: Measure and Cut

Measure about one third of the way in on the side of the folded fabric where all the folds are together.  This will be the placement of the slits for the arm holes.  At this point, cut a slit about 6 inches long through all the layers of fabric.   When you unfold it, it should look like the last two pictures in this step.

Step 4: Wear Your Cardigan!

That's it! Wear your new cardigan with pride! There's a ton of ways to wear it and it's so easy and cheap you can make them in a rainbow of colors!
If you want to wear it in even more ways and you are feeling ambitious, you can sew snaps to the corners, but you can wear it in tons of ways without doing that.

    I love this instructable thank you so much

    Can you post photo of other ways to wear this?

    If you go to the link I posted in the first step it has a bunch of tutorials for different ways to wear it :)

    Thanks, I appreciate it.

    It looks so elegant!

    looks nice and simple. how do you know if it's big enough? and how does it look on ppl that don't have model's body?

    Well, I don't have a model's body and I think it looks alright on me! There are to many ways to wear it, I think it would be flattering on pretty much any body type. I think that 2 yards of fabric is an amount that will work for a lot of sizes. If you're worried, you could add another half a yard, but if the fabric you are using is as stretchy as the fabric I was using, that might even be too much!

    There are several Pinterest and probably other blog posts on HOW exactly to wear this---not sure you put your head thru--altho I dunno why not!!!---but I think the slits are more for arm holes so it doesn't slide off your shoulders---the prob I always have with things!

    Lighter weight for bathing suit cover ups; could always use it as a shelter at the beach or camping; wrap around your waist; could make one in terry and use for a beach towel and shower towel--endless!

    Oh yeah, making them out of different materials would be really interesting. A terry bathing suit cover would be great!
