I completely forgot that HM and I took a series of photos to illustrate this scarf tie! Brain Fade. Tragic, really. Now that I’ve remembered, allow me to share.
This tie will work with a long, narrow rectangular scarf, but I’m excited to find that it will also work with a large square scarf.
If you’re working with a large square, fold in half to form a large triangle.
Roll the triangle into a rope from pointed end inward. This will keep that little pointed end from sticking out.
Hold the rope at one end and twist the entire length of the scarf. If you’re using a long, narrow rectangular scarf, this is where you’d begin the process. If you have trouble keeping the twist from unraveling, you can hold one end under your chin or press one end to a table, then twist.
Your twisted rope should be relatively narrow.
Wrap the twisted rope around your neck however many times looks best.
And tie the two ends together!
This is a great tie to use if you want to wear a scarf, but don’t want to add too much volume to your top half. As you can see, the scarf is pretty compact and sits flat once tied.
Hope this was helpful!
