Additional Information



  • 1-3/4 yards 44" wide Plaiditudes fabric
  • Sewing machine
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Matching thread


  1. Cut a rectangle of fabric 44" wide by 60" tall on grain.
  2. Measure and mark 2" from each edge and sew along markings using a straight stitch following the grain. This line of stitching will prevent the scarf from fraying too much.
  3. To fringe edges, pull out threads along the edges up to the stitching.
TIP - For easy fringing, make little cuts all around the poncho every 2"-3" (cut just up to the stitching). Fringe in small sections, using a straight pin or a needle to help pull out the little clumps of thread.
    3 Ways to Wear Your Blanket Scarf:
  • Option 1: Fold in half diagonally. Place the point in the front and tie the longer ends behind your neck. Bring the tied ends forward over your shoulder.
  • Option 2: Gather up the 60" edges to form a narrow scarf 60" long. Wrap around your neck with one end in front and one behind.
  • Option 3: Gather up the 60" edges to form a narrow scarf 60" long. Place scarf over the back of your neck and secure in front with a narrow belt.
