Be sure to choose a Stretch Jersey Knit Fabric with 5% Spandex for your Turtleneck Scarf sewing project. This lightweight stretch cotton knit fabric provides a smooth hand, stylish drape, and about a 50% four-way stretch — for added comfort. Or, choose to make a scarf from a cotton t-shirt or knit top with 5% Spandex.

Choose Your Turtleneck Scarf Size

Note From Team Nancy Zieman Productions Using a tape measure, measure forehead circumference – just above eyebrows: If forehead circumference measures 20-1/2″- 21-1/2″ make a size Small/Medium Turtleneck Scarf. If forehead circumference measures 21-1/2″-22-1/2″ make a size Medium/Large Turtleneck Scarf. We’re making a size Small/Medium Turtleneck Scarf in this sewing tutorial.

Prepare & Cut Fabric

JT445_01 Quilter’s Starch Savvy available at shopnzp.com

Note From Team Nancy Zieman ProductionsPrepare your fabrics! Pre-treat fabric by steaming and pressing, then, stabilize fabrics for the sewing process by pressing and starching fabrics with June Tailor’s Starch Savvy. Press and starch, press and starch.

  • Cut One Fabric Rectangle 18″ long by 21″ wide for size Small/Medium. Be sure to cut the fabric rectangle with the greatest fabric stretch across the 21″ width. (For Size XS/Small cut one fabric rectangle 18″ long by 20″ wide. For size Medium/Large, cut one fabric rectangle 18″ long by 23″ wide: for a 10-1/2″ wide x 8-1/2 long finished scarf).
  • NOTE: Deanna, from Team NZP, stitched a Turtleneck Scarf for her husband – with One Fabric Rectangle measuring 22-1/2″ long by 23-1/2″ wide – cut from 5/8 yd Stretch Jersey Knit Fabric. Or, you may be the designer and choose your own custom fabric rectangle size!

Stitch Turtleneck Scarf

  • Fold fabric rectangle, right sides together, meeting 21″ long edges. Pin.
NEW! Turtleneck Scarf Sewing Tutorial by Nancy Zieman Productions

Note From Team Nancy Zieman ProductionsSet sewing machine for a “wobble-stitch”: Choose a slight zigzag (2.0-2.5 length and .5 width). On the garment outside, this stitch will give the appearance of a straight stitch, while providing a slight amount of stretch to the seam! Or, choose a 4-thread overlock serger stitch. Now’s the perfect time to use that serger!

  • Stitch or serge seam with 1/4″ seam allowance, or use the edge of your presser foot as a guide. Be sure to backstitch at seam beginning and ending. For extra durability during wear–stitch this seam again, stitching over original stitching line. No need to double stitch this seam if you’re stitching with a serger!

  • Press seam flat, then press open or press to one side.

  • Measure and mark a 3″-4″ opening along cut edges, staying about 3″-4″ away from seam.

  • Stitch or serge seam with 1/4″ seam allowance, or use the edge of your presser foot as a guide. Be sure to backstitch at each side of 3″-4″ opening. Turn Scarf right side out through seam opening.

Note From Team Nancy Zieman ProductionsBefore moving on to the finishing step, go ahead and try on your scarf-in-process. Slip scarf over head and check for your desired fit. If scarf is too loose, turn inside out and restitch seam (above) taking a deeper seam allowance.
