I’ve written a few articles on how to tie scarves now, but it’s one of the most requested posts so I thought I’d share a few more of my scarf tying techniques with you! And if you want to see some more, pop on over here, here and here.
Today I want to share 3 of my favorite ways to tie my silk square scarves. These are large, (120cm X 120cm) so there’s a lot of fabric to play with which is a must in my book, I can’t bear it when a scarf is too piddly to do anything with!
If you like the look of skinny scarves then you’re going to love this method.
- Lay your square scarf on a flat surface and fold one of the corners into the center
- Repeat this with the opposite corner
- Fold the longest edges into the middle, one by one a until your scarf is about 2-3 inches wide
- Drape the skinny scarf around your neck and tie it loosely at the front. Where you tie it is entirely up to you, but if you’re busty then I would suggest tying it under your bust rather than on top.
This is similar to the previous method, only we’re tying it slightly differently.
- Follow steps 1-3 from the method above
- Drape the scarf around your neck so that one side is longer than the other
- Grab the longest length, wrap it around your neck and bring it back round to the front.
This third method is a staple of mine, I wore scarves like this all the time while we lived in India as it was a great way to keep covered which was customary there.
- Fold your scarf in half so it forms a triangle
- Grab the corners of the longest side and tie them together to form a loop
- Put the loop over your head so the knot is behind your neck
- Pull the corner with the knot away from your neck and twist it once to form a second loop
- Put the new loop over your head and adjust the scarf so the point is in the center and the knot is on top
- Optional – if you’re not a fan of the knot on being on show, simply pull the point of the scarf over the top so it’s hidden
