1 yard cotton or jersey fabric
Iron out your yard of fabric folded in half (selvedge edge to selvedge edge)
Following that center fold, cut your fabric in half. At this point you can choose to make your scarf one loop length or long enough to wrap up several times. If you want it a single loop you can make two scarves out of one meter. To make a longer scarf you will first have to take your two peices and sew them right sides together to make one long strip. (you can also cut a 2 yard piece in half if you don't want an extra seam)
Fold your fabric in half lengthways, right sides together, and pin it.
Starting about 3 inches in from the end stitch all along the edge leaving the last 3 inches open as well. Once you've made a few scarves you can shorten the openings closer to 2 inches, it just makes stitching the scarf shut much easier the bigger the opening.
opening on one side
Turn your scarf right side out. It should now look like a tube.
This is where it gets a bit tricky. Fold your scarf in half so that both raw edges line up. Taking both open ends you'll notice you have 4 strips of open fabric. Grab the bottom raw seams, pin them together and then start stitching (right sides together) all the way around the raw edges until you get to the end.
nearing the end, the scarf is really bunched and things get tight, go slow!
Pull the scarf the rest of the way through and you're left with a small opening.
Slip stitch the small hole closed and add a tag if you wish! You're done!
