Ready to make the Easiest Fleece Hat and Scarf ever? You can sew this super Easy Fleece Hat and Scarf Set in 15 minutes flat!
I’ve had this darling kitty print fleece just sitting around in my stash, taking up space for far too long.
Every time my Missy see’s it, she asks, “When are you going to make my blanket out of this fabric?” (When we picked it out, a blanket was the original plan.)
Every time she asks about the fabric, I feel guiltier and guiltier, so I figure I better use it soon.
This girl certainly does not need another blanket, but we can always use more cold weather gear. (I actually have two yards of this fleece, so I might even whip up a pair of pajama bottoms or possibly a pullover with the leftovers.
The scarf and hat took about 15 minutes to put together and oh my goodness did it come out cute! My kitty crazy girl, could not have been more pleased. (I don’t know if you can make out what she is wearing in this picture, but she wears a kitty themed outfit or hair accessory to school 1 to 2 times a week!)
I shared this fleece hat tutorial a few years back. Find the instructions for the hat here and the scarf instructions are below!

Easy Fleece Scarf Tutorial
Materials needed for the scarf:
- 14.5 by 60-inch piece of fleece
- 2 strips of fleece 1/2 inch wide by 8 inches long
- basic sewing supplies
Instructions to make the scarf:
Cut a piece of fleece to 14.5 inches wide by 60 inches long and 2 smaller strips to 1/2 inch wide by about 8 inches long.
Fold fleece, right sides together, lining up the long sides.
Measure 4 inches from the ends of the scarf and mark spots with a pin. Starting at the location of 1st pin, sew along edge with a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Stop sewing at 2nd pin. (this is where the fringe starts.)
Flip scarf right side out.
Measure up 4 inches from the end of the scarf and cut the scarf edges into scant 1/2 inch strips.
Repeat on the other side of the scarf.
Using the small strip you cut earlier, gather the fringe and tie a tight knot right where the firing begins. Trim the strip ends so it is the same length as the scarf fringe.
That’s it, you are done!
Quick tip: Since the pattern on my scarf was one way, I cut my scarf in half (before sewing the side seam) flipped it around and sewed it back together. This put an extra seam in the middle but made it so the pattern faced the same direction when she wears it.
