Make a Ringlet T-shirt Scarf for Fall

No Sew Tshirt Scarf Tutorial

This little ringlet scarf made out of old t-shirts is so fun for fall! There’s no sewing involved (hallelujah!), and you can make it while sitting in front of the TV in less time than it takes to watch a really good, trashy show on E.

Since I have an abundance of orange and blue Auburn shirts (and we go to a lot of the crisp, fall football games) I decided to go with Auburn colors. This scarf goes together so fast and is basically free to make – it’s perfect to wear in support of your favorite team! :)

The best part about this cute scarf is that the only supplies you need to make it are a few old tshirts and a pair of scissors. That’s it!

So grab a few tees in your favorite colors and start by cutting off the hem. We’ll be using it later!

Then cut the shirts into strips about 3/4″ wide. I cut 8 strips from each shirt for a total of 32.

Give the loops a nice big stretch.

And wrap them around you hand.

…31 more times.

Now take those hems and cut them into strips about 5″ long. Use those to tie all your loops together…

Into one long chain.

That’s it! You now have a cute, comfy, and ultra cozy t-shirt scarf! :) I first saw this scarf on Cut out and Keep. Such a cute site – so many fun projects there!

Happy Fall… And have a great weekend! :)

Thanks for the great idea! I cut the sleeves into strips and tied them to the end rings for tassels, and they look awesome! Definitely going to be Christmas gifts this year.

Question: After wrapping around your hand, what do you do with the end?

Hi Amanda,
I love your scarf and just made one similar and now I’m trying to figure out how to wear it. Any tips? I watched your cute “ways to wear scarves” video but none of those ways quite seemed to fit with this scarf, so since you have one I thought I’d just ask you. If you have any recommendations or photos wearing it will you post them or send them to me? I’m a first grade teacher and I also adore your fonts. I use them in my teacher products all the time. Thanks for all your creative inspiration and hard work!

My daughter’s fiancé made this for her, I fell in love with it. He sent me your link, I loved making this scarf! To those who had problems with the strips not curling up, that happened on my first shirt. I went to the next tee, it worked fine. The difference between the 2 tees: the one I did not get a curl from was 100% cotton. The ones that curled great were 50% cotton / 50% polyester.

Definitely clicked on this because I loved the colors and wanted to recreate because I have an abundance of Auburn shirts. Thought it was just a coincidence they were Auburn colors… but nice, love it! WDE :)
