FavoriteScarves 2 NancyZieman FirstOver the years, Nancy recorded at least six programs on sewing scarves. Going through the Sewing With Nancy archives and revisiting those techniques reminded us that most scarf styles are timeless. Today Team Nancy Zieman spotlights the second episode of Favorite Scarves to Sew, where you’ll see videos, showcasing scarf techniques that have stood the test of time.

Loop & Tuck Scarf

Whether you’re a newcomer or seasoned viewer of Sewing With Nancy, we’re certain there’s a scarf style that will pique your interest. Let’s start with the Loop & Tuck Scarf. With only a yard of fabric and a little sewing time, you can easily create an accessory that always stays in place. The essential ingredient can be found in the way the pattern is designed; there will be no slipping or sliding of the scarf once it’s looped and tucked!


S-Curve Scarf

Different fabrics, different looks—that statement couldn’t be more obvious when looking at these two scarf options. Even though the same pattern was used, the edge finish plus the fabric choice change this scarf from elegant to casual.  It’s called an S-Curve Scarf. The scarf pattern pieces resemble two large donut shapes—it must seem odd, but the results are anything but! Wonder how it’s made? Just watch.  We think you’ll be surprised!


Knot Your Average Scarf

If you’ve been itching to sew, but hesitate because you don’t think you have the time, make a “Knot Your Average Scarf.” In fact, this scarf can be made in a little over an hour.

Featured is a knit version of the scarf in two coordinating colors—you could also select woven fabrics if you’d like. The first step is to sew tubes, and Nancy will show you how to create the knot. Then, a little more sewing and presto, a completed scarf. It’s creativity with instant success!


Convertible-Ride Scarf

On set, Nancy joked, “If I owned a convertible, I’d choose a hot pink number, buy a big floppy hat, and wear this scarf cavalierly around my neck!” She settled for wearing this scarf while driving her mini van. If you’re in need of a mental getaway, choose a pretty print organza, a coordinating solid, and a touch of ribbon. This easy-to-sew scarf has daydreaming possibilities.


Double De-Lite Scarf

If you own a serger, the Double De-Lite Scarf is for you. Choose two compatible lightweight fabrics such as organza or organdy, cut bias strips, serge the edges, and after stacking and sewing the layers together, you’ll find that you’ve created a flowing, graceful neck wrap.

Make it long as featured, or shortened as your taste guides you—you’re the designer, so make it your own. The sewing and serging processes are extremely enjoyable and the finished scarf creates a stunning frame for your face.


Team Nancy Zieman’s goal in presenting clips from previous Sewing With Nancy programs showcasing scarves, is to tell the story that the techniques of sewing scarves are almost timeless yet fulfill our need to be creative.

  • Andrea Letourneau

    I definitely want to try the Double De-Lite Scarf and the knotted infinity scarf. I think both would look great with dresses for work

    I would like to make the Loop and Tuck Scarf. “No slipping or sliding” of the scarf sounds good to me. Thank you for the great giveaway!

  • Carol R

    I love these scarves. One can not have too many.

  • Peggy Bibb

    Infinity scarves are always great. The hoop and loop scarf looks good too.

  • Brenda Beane

    I remember watching Nancy making the scarves on her show and was totally amazed at how much can be done and what awesome gifts they would make. I just wished I could find the time to do them with all the other projects

  • Hannah W

    The s curve scarf is lovely. I’d like to try that one…

  • Susan T

    I like to wear a necklace on top of a scarf so the pendent scarf would fir the bill.

  • Lorraine Alves
    February 5, 2019

    All of the scarves are beautiful. However, my favorite scarf is the chenille scarf. I have watched Nancy and her guest make that scarf on multiple occasions starting with the original airing on Sewing with Nancy and many repeats of the show. I have also watch the demonstration from the web site. I can imagine the softness of the scarf and the joy it would bring to wear it.

  • Kathryn Englebretsen

    I really like the s curve scarf. I even have the fabric -organza I purchased at an estate sale.

  • Sunni

    Knot your average scarf is perfect for some fabric I have on hand. I want to shop for fabric to make Double Delight. I love watching Nancy sewing and teaching us! Thanks for keeping her work available to all of us – newbies to experienced.

  • Donna Fecteau

    To spruce up my winter attire, I think that the “Knot your average scarf” two tone scarf would be my first choice. Since the make up so fast I could make one to match my coat and one or two to match my favorite winter sweaters as a way to spruce up my office attire at the same time.

  • K.T. Allen

    I am hoping some of these scarves can be made by a newbie sewer. I just had a total thyroidectomy, so I now have a large scar which I also have to protect from sun, so I have a new-found interest in scarves! The pendant scarf looks lovely and unique, but many would work for me.

  • Clovis

    All the scarves are really good to make. I like the Knot Your Average Scarf.

  • Susan

    The loop and tuck scarf seems like a practical choice for a winter wardrobe and also an opportunity to add a “taste” of spring to it through bright, cheery color choices.

  • L Watson
    February 5, 2019

    “Knot Your Average Scarf” looks like a winner to me! Easy to wear, adds warmth to the back of the neck, and adds color to an outfit.

  • Sandra
    February 5, 2019

    I want to make the convertible scarf and follow Nancy’s suggestion. I used to have a MG Midget that would fit the bill,

  • Jasmine Jozwiak
    February 5, 2019

    Once upon a time (many years ago) I took notes while watching your show for the Loop & Tuck Scarf. However, I have misplaced these notes and would love a chance to win this book. I also really like to S Curve Scarf and the
    Double Delight. Miss watching you on tv.
    Thanks so much for all the information you shared.
