Even in Texas football games start to get chilly. Support your team and stay warm with these 3 No-Sew Fleece Scarf Patterns.
Youngest Twin is a freshman in high school this year. That means a new addition to our family activities, high school football games. I have to admit that I am ridiculously excited about high school football games. And for good reason. Youngest Twin is going to the same high school that I went to! It’s also the same high his Dad went to. And all of our siblings. And it’s the same high school that my Dad went to. Yep, Youngest Twin is 3rd generation. So we have to make sure to instill school pride in him early.
Even in Texas football games start to get chilly. In honor of Youngest Twin being the 3rd generation to cheer on the green and white, I’ve got three no-sew fleece scarf tutorials for you. These took me anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes each to make. Which means you can make it just in time to head out to the game.
I bought 1 yard of fleece fabric at Walmart and made 6 scarves with it. Depending on how wide you want your scarf to be you will be able to make at least a few from a yard of fabric, meaning these scarves are also a deal. And would make perfect gifts! My scarves were between 6 and 10 inches wide (I made a few different widths.)
First up is just a fleece fringe scarf. This scarf was 10 inches wide. Using my rotary cutter I cut strips 1/2″ wide and about 3 inches long. And that’s it! Once the fringe is cut the scarf is ready to wear. This is the 5 minute fleece scarf.
Scarf number 2 is a yarn fringe scarf. For this scarf I used my scissors to cut small slits that were 1/2″ apart. Make sure not to cut through to the bottom of the scarf. The fringe needs to go through this hole.
I cut lengths of yarn that were 12″ long and used 3 in each hole (2 white and 1 gray). Folding the yarn in I used my crochet hook to pull the center of the yarn through the hole. Then I pulled the ends of the yarn through that loop and pulled gently to form the fringe. Repeat across each end of the scarf.
Scarf number 3 is a yarn pom-pom scarf. I made 6 large pom-pom’s, 3 for each end. One in the center and one on each side. When making the pom-pom I left two longer strands to attach it to the scarf (the ones from the piece of yarn I used to tie around the center of the pom-pom). I cut small slits again, like on the yarn fringe scarf, and tied the pom-pom’s onto the fleece scarf, knotting them securely.
While I was at Walmart getting the fleece for my scarves I also picked up some other sports essentials. Youngest Twin started after school drill this week and I’m packing him a POWERADE for practices to help him power through the week. I’m also picking up some Coca-Cola to enjoy during the week sporting events and on the weekend for college football watch parties.
Whether you’re celebrating at home or cheering on your athletes from the sidelines, you can make the most of your game days with tips from NotSoFastMom.com. Try keeping a cooler of different Coca-Cola beverages like Coke Zero and POWERADE in the living room so no one misses any action on Game Day, or buy extra POWERADE at Walmart so your athlete can hydrate before and during their games, etc.
How are you showing team spirit all week long?
