Make a Ringlet T-shirt Scarf 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. So grab a few tees in your favorite colors and start by cutting off the hem. Then cut the shirts into strips about 3/4″ wide. 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.
