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 a 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).
  • Update! 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. Be a 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.

  • Fold fabric tube, right sides together, stacking and aligning stitched seam. Pin.
  • 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.
NEW! Turtleneck Scarf Sewing Tutorial by Nancy Zieman Productions
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.

    This would be extremely handy when making adjustments for pattern fitting. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    Thank you for offering this pattern. With elastic for sewing masks virtually impossible to find this is a great alternative.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win. I love the turtleneck scarf/mask.

    Great idea! Thanks, Stitch it! Sisters, for your updates and notes along with the classic “Nancy’s tips.”

    Can you give the finished measurements of the scarf please. Should the stretchiest grain of the fabric be going around the neck? I may be confused but the instructions seem to have the stretch going up and down. I hope you can clarify for me. Thanks.

    • Jan B
      April 15, 2020

      C. Ragin, I agree with you. The instructions clearly say to have the greatest stretch along the 21″ measurement, which ends up being the up and down part rather than the around the neck part. I hope the pattern writer will respond with a clarification.

    Thank you for this pattern. I was very excited to see it. I have made many masks for donations but personally I find them hard to wear. I am very anxious to try this.

  • Dixie

    I love the turtleneck scarf that could be used as a mask.

  • Bonnye

    Great idea. I like to have a scarf that covers my neck when the wind is blowing.

  • Janet

    What a great idea. These would make nice little gifts and stocking stuffers.

    It’s cold when I walk in the mornings, and I’ve been wearing an ear warmer around my neck. Now I’ll just make a couple of these turtleneck scarves. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

    This is a great scrap-buster for my leftover knit fabrics 🙂

  • Patti Lawler

    Terrific idea. No sore ears from wearing a mask.

  • Linda S.

    Such a great idea for the cold, especially for using up leftover fabric in my stash. Thanks.

    Usually I am not one to wear a turtle neck of any kind (not enough of a neck!), but I know several people who would love this. Since I now have to do the outside chores (lost my husband), I am putting me at the top of that list! And I have tons of fabric to use!
    I’m also thinking of the young grandkids – has somebody made them that small? What were your measurements? Hoping I don’t have to do a ton of trial and error.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    I am looking forward to making this today! Thank you for this great idea! My guys & their friends will love them. 😉 Stay well everyone!

    This stretch mask will solve the problem of
    the woven fabric one I made for my
    husband as it is not comfortable.
    Will certainly make this one with his favorite color.
    Thank you for all the wonderful ideas you have given me in the past also. K.

    The sliding gauge looks like a very handy tool! Thank you for all your great tutorials!!

  • Clovis

    Would be great to wear all year round.

    Another great idea for an easy and rather normal looking mask. We who sew really are some of the most creative people in the world!!! Yay us!!!

    This is so timely to make as we need to social distance

  • Sunni

    Thanks for the instructions. I’ll make some for myself and a bunch of friends who would make good use of the turtleneck.

    After making masks, this would be a nice change. Already have a sliding gauge and love it. I use it every day!!

  • Susan
    April 16, 2020

    This pattern is so easy that one can make multiple scarf/mask cover-ups. The 5 in 1 sliding gauge looks like a real handy tool to have part of one’s sewing kit.

  • L Watson

    I think everyone in the family could use these!
    Thanks for the pattern!

    versatile turtle neck scarf!
    Thank you.

    I have made similar scarves for winter from old sweaters, but this is great to give me more masks and to reduce the number of t-shirts that I never wear. Thank you.

  • Mary J Schultz
    April 18, 2020

    What a cinch to make! It took me longer to locate a piece of fabric from my stash than it did to cut and sew this scarf together. And so stylish, as an essential worker I can make one to match any outfit. Thank you so much!!!

  • Karen L
    April 18, 2020

    I was just speaking to someone about this kind of scarf after making her a mask. She uses hers in the cold weather and loves it. My son-in-law could use it to keep the sun off the back of his neck where the sun’s rays have done some damage. This is such a great and easy idea. Wish I had some appropriate fabric to try it out. Guess that will have to wait.

  • Cindy Kahrs
    April 18, 2020

    This pattern is something I can’t wait to try. Making masks and out of elastic. Have been using t-shirts for ties. Now I can use the extra t-shirt fabric for this pattern. Thanks!

  • Linda Johnson
    April 18, 2020

    Brilliant 🙂 I am making them for some of the front line care workers that I know. I am also starting to make Christmas gifts. What a gift.
    God Bless

    I’m making this for my daughter who has survived 2 cancers and needs to bundle up all year long, both summer and winter. Thank you for sharing this wonderful pattern. I’m waiting for the fabric and other items I ordered from NZ.

    I’m a beginner sewer. I’m going to give this a try.

  • thelma weaver
    April 30, 2020

    i’m a little slow with directions, when you fold over with the right sides facing does that mean that i sew all four pieces together up to the opening,? thank-you.

  • thelma weaver
    May 1, 2020

    can any of you answer my question,?

  • Janice Zwiers
    September 1, 2020

    Great tutorial! Very explanatory! I think I can even make this one! Lol
    I am going to try tomorrow. I will be using my BabyLock sewing machine since I dont have a surger. Wish me luck! Jan
