1. Cut and sew the fabric. Cut a 72-inch-long by 21-inch-wide rectangle of fabric. With right sides together and long edges aligned, fold the scarf in half and machine-sew the long edge with a 1/2-inch-wide seam allowance.
2. Add a twist. Turn the scarf right side out. Twist one end of the scarf to add a kink in the design.
3. Join the short ends. Fold the scarf in half by pulling it over itself as shown with right sides together and the short raw edges aligned. It will look like a long tube with the fold at one end and the raw edges at the other. Machine-sew around the raw edges with a 1/2-inch-wide seam allowance, leaving a 4-inch-long opening.
4. Finish the scarf. Turn the scarf right side out through the opening. Hand-sew the opening shut.
Make your scarf as long or as short as you like. Wrap it a few times as shown, or wear it long and loosely draped.
