This hooded scarf or cowl was made using an old, oversized sweater.

No-Knit Elegant Yarn Scarf
You can make easy to make scarves using yarn, yes, but these would often require knitting.
However, this DIY yarn scarf does not require you to put those knitting needles out of storage. All you need are soft yarn, leather straps, and velcro square.
The first thing you need to do is to measure the distance between your nape and navel with the yarn. After doing this, make a skein by unraveling and forming the yarn into a hoop. Maintain the length you measured.
Honestly… WTF did this by wrapping the yarn into two dining chairs placed side-by-side. Make sure that both ends of your yarn are in the same position.
When you are satisfied with the skein’s thickness, twist the yarn so it would look like the threads are spiraling infinitely. After this, tie the ends and hide the knot using the leather straps and velcro/hot glue/leather glue.
Multi-Strand Easy to Make Scarf
This one is made from old shirt/s.
You can use more than one shirt if you want to be a bit more colorful or be cozier. Jersey knit as well as cotton shirts work well for this project.
Use your creativity and try to mix up different fabrics, colors or prints for a unique effect.
Lay the shirt/s on a clean, flat surface and cut 1.5 to 2-inch wide horizontal strips. You want the part below the sleeves to the part slightly above the hem.
After you have the strips, gather them together and secure the part that will cover your nape by tying one strip around them. Secure it with hot glue or by sewing.
You may also braid some of the strips to make the look of your scarf a bit less monotonous.
