Hello, and welcome to visitors of the 12 Gifts of Christmas blog hop! Twelve sewing and quilting bloggers have joined together to share handmade holiday gift tutorials to get you ready for the season of giving. I’m very honored to be one of them! And in case you’ve been following along, you probably know that there’s a fabric giveaway at the end of this post. It’s sponsored by Mountain of the Dragon, one of my favorite online shops to browse for Echino and other designer fabrics.
Today, I’m going to be sharing how to make a reversible patchwork scarf in a zig-zag or chevron design. You’ll need a charm pack (I used Hometown by Sweetwater) and 5/8 yard of Kona white fabric. You’ll have leftovers of both. Also, you’ll want a rotary cutter and cutting mat, your sewing machine and matching thread.
To start, open your charm pack and sort by color family. For this scarf, my strongest color groups were the reds and blues, so these are the 18 charms I used for my scarf. You could easily make two of these scarves from one charm pack, in which case you’ll want to use 1 and 1/4 yard of Kona white.
Next, you’ll want to chain piece your charm squares by sewing them directly onto the white fabric, right sides together. (Use a 1/4-inch seam allowance for all stitching.) The wrong side of the charm squares will face up as you stitch, and you’ll arrange them on the white one right after the other. You’ll cut these units apart later, but chain piecing these blocks is quick and uses minimal thread.
Once you have stitched along one long side of all the charm squares, flip the long white piece of fabric around and stitch the other side down to the white, so that two opposite sides of each charm are sewn down to the white, and the other sides are free. (This is where you will later cut between each charm.) After this step is completed, you’ll have a long strip of charm squares facing the white fabric, right sides together.
Note: If you’d rather not chain piece, you can still complete this step by cutting out 18 five-inch white charms squares, and sewing the left and right edges of one white square to each of your colored charm squares, with the right sides touching.
Next, you’ll cut around the perimeter of each charm square backed in white, to set it free. Measure and cut each quilt-block sandwich into two 2.5-inch halves, making sure the stitched sides are to the left and right of your cut line (not top and bottom).
Open up the new charms, which are half-and-half. Bring them to your ironing board and press the seams open.
Trim up the blocks to 4.5-inch squares with your rotary cutter. Arrange blocks in a zig zag (keeping the color groups of blue and reds together) like the photo. Pair darker with lighter values until you get an effect you like.
Next, you’ll want to cut twelve 4.5-inch squares from white fabric. Slice these blocks diagonally, from corner to corner as shown, to make triangular inserts. These will fill in the holes around your zig zags. For two of the scarf corners (top left and bottom right), you will cut one triangle in half again (from the top point to the center of the straight edge) to create even smaller triangles.
Piece the tiny corner triangle to the corner block, and then piece the side triangles to create your first row. You will join each diagonal row in the same way (see below). Take the pieces for the next row and line them up to sew. I used my cutting mat to accurately transport the blocks from the floor to my sewing machine, making sure to keep each block facing the right way.
Once all of your diagonal rows are pieced together, join the rows, making sure to iron your seams open. Iron the scarf and trim off the fabric peaks along each edge.
Next, fold the scarf in half width-wise, so that the red and blue layers are touching. Stitch around the three loose sides, leaving a 2-inch gap in both the top and bottom. Use these gaps to help you turn the long scarf right-side out.
Press scarf flat and stitch 1/8-inch from the edge of the entire perimeter to close up the gaps from earlier. This will give a nice, finished edge to your scarf.
Voila! Flip it to either side to coordinate with your outfit. I think this lightweight scarf would make a great gift for a parent or grandparent. As a variation, you could use yardage of any fabric, instead of using a charm pack! How fun would this design be in solids, for a Charlie Brown effect?

Thank you for the cute scarf tutorial. I’m going to use a Victoria charm pack to make it! I chose to like you on my facebook account.
I love that the scarf hangs on the bias of the fabrics to make it nice and soft. Thanks for a chance to win some great fabric!
I like this scarf tutorial on facebook. The block layout would make it drape nicely.
I’m a little confused by the instructions, though. You say to lay the charms on the white wrong sides together. It looks in the picture though as if it’s right sides together. Also if you stitched wrong sides together, then wouldn’t the seam allowance show on the right sides? Am I just nit getting it?
Thanks Chelsea–that’s what happens when you stay up late writing a tutorial! I’ve fixed it to say right sides together. So the wrong sides would face out. 🙂
very nice project … looks easy to do! i can do one for a friend.
What a cute scarf! I love Hometown. In fact I have 3 charm packs. Two of the charm packs are going to be a quilt. Now I know what I’m going to do with the third. Thanks for the great tutorial. I have always wanted to do a zig zag pattern. This will be perfect.
THANKS FOR A NEAT TUTORIAL!

I love the “shortcut” method of chain stitching both sides of the charms and then cutting them down the middle. That is much faster than cutting first and stitching later.
what a cute idea
Great tutorial! Looks a little out of my skill range (I have yet to master successful triangles..lol) but cute cute cute!!

I’m trying to make the scarf for my daughter but I don’t understand how I can get 2 1/2 in. halves from this block. With a five inch color piece and 1/4 in seams on each side there’s no way to cut 2 1/2 in. and make two blocks. Thanks for any help.
Hi Pat! When you cut the 5″ charms in half (you are cutting before you do any sewing, correct?), they are each 2.5″ x 5″. Join two halves along the 2.5″ edge, and you lose 1/4″ from each, making each 2.25″ wide. Then, 2.25″ + 2.25″ should equal 4.5″ wide (still 5″ long). Trim to 4.5″ square. I also use a scant 1/4″ seam. Please let me know if you have more questions!
I thought you sewed the charms to the white strip on each side and then cut. I finally cut 2 1/4 in of the charm and the white. Thank you for answering my question.
I am having a hard time with this scarf. I used green and pink squares. I have everything sewn together and have 36 green and 36 pink squares. How long is your scarf? This makes a really, really long scarf. I couldn’t find any measurements in the directions. Thanks for any help.
I think it is very nice for you and others to share your patterns, and I do read the comments of other receiptants, however I did not find a PDF icon to print the patchwork scarf pattern. I did not print it in its entirety as there were 51 pages of comments.
Thanks for your consideration of placing a PDF icon so just the pattern can be downloaded
