The cover apparatus allows the scarf piece to have alike or different scarf sections connected together without the connectors/fasteners such as snaps, buttons and/or magnets being seen. The apparatus is sewn on either end of the scarf that has connectors or fasteners. The connector/fastener cover is made to cover the first and mated second end of the same scarf or different scarf pieces that are connected to its mated end which forms an infinity scarf.

Description



BACKGROUND

[0001] The scarf is the most simple form of adornment: a single piece of cloth. For this reason, it's one of the most versatile clothing accessories, used for centuries across a variety of cultures, for a range of purposes. Many women wear headscarves for modesty. Some scarves are worn as a political statement. A piece of fabric worn lightly draped on the upper chest and usually knotted in front, it provided modest covering but was also an opportunity to add an especially fine element.

[0002] The years have now drastically changed and so have we as individuals. Adults and children are now more adventurous with clothing . . . just imagine if we were able to mix and match scarves which would now be considered as cool and even elegant. Yes, there are many different scarf designs, lengths, colors and material also including but not limited to, bandana scarves, neck scarves, head scarves and also infinity scarves. We deserve to have an ever changing look and style by mixing and matching scarves and not being limited to one scarf.

SUMMARY

[0003] Having a variety of scarf pieces that are formed into a continuous scarf doesn't leave you limited to one or two outfits but it allows you to have options from a wide variety of scarf pieces, not limited to one type of material, one pattern, one color or one length but all types of material, all patterns, all colors and all lengths. Two or more single scarf pieces can be attached together to its respective ends in which all scarf pieces will consist of a first end connector/fastener and a second end connector/fastener that can be attached to form a longer scarf making it a continuous scarf or infinity scarf. The connector/fastener on the first and second ends are very important so that an individual won't have a limit on how many times the scarf piece can be worn with a particular outfit that can be switched out or mixed and matched with other scarf pieces being so many different choices. If the first and second ends were actually sewn and not placed together with an attachment for a removable scarf piece there will be fewer selections for a person's outfit or outerwear. The scarf would be very limited to a person's outfits or outerwear. Two or more single scarf pieces from the wide selection of scarf pieces can be used or worn to eliminate that problem. Selecting one or more different or the same scarf pieces from the variety of scarf pieces to make your outfit complete on any and every occasion. A single scarf piece can be used as a single piece for male or female.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0008] As seen in FIG. 2 a Scarf Piece is formed of a single scarf piece that includes a first end and an opposite second end.

[0009] The scarf piece 10, 18 can be formed of different materials . . . having a single scarf pieces 10, 18 doesn't leave you limited to one or two outfits but it allows you to to have options from a wide variety of scarf pieces, for example FIG. 1, but not limited to one type of material, one pattern, one color or one length but all types of material, all patterns, all colors and all lengths.

[0010] A single scarf piece 10, 18 have two ends. A first end includes one connector/fastener 12 and the second end of the single scarf piece includes a second connector/fastener 14 which has a connector/fastener on the first end 12 and a second mating connector/fastener 14 on the opposite end. The first connector/fastener 12 and the second connector/fastener 14 are made to detach or connect a second scarf piece 18, not limited to two scarf pieces, which also have a first connector/fastener 12 and a second connector/fastener 14 as seen in FIG. 2 to form an infinity wearing scarf as seen in FIG. 1, which is a continuous structure that can also be worn in a doubled looped or more than doubled looped formation which ever the individual chooses.

[0011] A single piece of material called the connector/fastener cover 16 as seen in FIG. 4 is sewn onto the first or second end 12,14 of the first scarf piece 10 with or without elastic to make it easier for the added connector/fastener cover 16 to be pulled over to the second connected scarf piece 18 to make the connector/fastener invisible.

[0012] All connectors/fasteners 12,14 used can be of any different types and sizes, such as snaps, buttons, by the way of tying and also with magnets.

[0013] The connector/fastener 12,14 is attached to the scarf piece as seen in FIG. 2, when connected to the corresponding connector/fastener 12,14, such as the first and second ends. The connector/fasteners 12,14 are then hidden from view by the connector/fastener cover 16, which is material added to the scarf on either end by sewing the added material to either respected end of the scarf piece, the first or second end.

[0014] The material is folded at the connector/fastener 12 not less or more with no overhang. The second end similarly, the second connector/fastener 14 is attached to the scarf piece and the material is folded at the connectors/fasteners 12,14 not less or more with no overhang. The material is folded at the connectors/fasteners 12,14 and thus, does not overhang. The material is folded at the first connectors/fasteners 12 with a free flowing body and then at the second end, the material is then again folded at the connector/fastener 14 and thus, does not overhang and the material is gathered and then sewn on both first and second ends about an 1/2'' more or less from the connector/fastener.

[0015] When the first connector/fastener 12 is connected to the second connector/fastener 14 of a second scarf piece 18, not limited to two scarf pieces, resulting in a continuous scarf as seen in FIG. 1. which also could be double looped or more than double looped. The first and second connectors/fasteners 12,14 are not hidden from view. When adding a connector/fastener cover 16, a single piece of material sewn onto the first or second end with or without elastic (the elastic placed on each side of the attachment cover could be necessary to make it easier for the connector/fastener cover 16 to be pulled over to the second scarf piece 18 or the opposite scarf piece end) allowing the connectors/fasteners 12,14 to be hidden. When having a connector/fastener cover 16 which is a single piece of material sewn onto the first or second end and not limited to material but also could have plastic, rubber, leather, suede or ornaments, in which will cover the connectors/fasteners 12,14, thereby forming a continuous scarf as seen in FIG. 1, using two or more single scarf pieces.

[0016] A single scarf piece 10, 18 can also be used as a head scarf . . . by opening the scarf piece up as wide as it can go and then placing it over the head . . . it can be tied and then snapped or just snapped . . . pulling the connector/fastener cover 16 over from first end 12; to the second end 14 (opposite ends), if chooses.
