As you may know, I’ve spent this weekend at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival… and I’ve been having a great time. I’ve learned a lot… but do you want to hear the most exciting thing I’ve learned all weekend?
I learned a super-awesome new way to wear a long scarf!
If you’re like me (well, at least the me a few days ago), your standard way to manage a long scarf is to fold it in half, and tuck the ends through the loop. Easy, but leaves a giant bulge around your neck. But, Steven Be, fiber stylist extraordinaire, taught me a new way to wear a long scarf! Squee! And I’m so excited about sharing it with you that I took photos of how to do it in the hotel lobby!
Super-stylish way to wrap a long scarf
First, fold your scarf in half:
And then put it around your neck (so far… just like the old way!)
Now, here’s where it gets new! Pull only one tail through the loop:
Now, scoot that tail up a bit, and twist the loop once. The first tail should be above the twist. Pull the second tail through the loop you’ve just twisted:
Pull it all snug… and ta-da!
It looks like an awesomely-intricate knot… and lies really nice and flat. Look how nicely it fits under my coat:
Hooray! I’m wearing my scarf like this every day!
Do you have any cool ways of wrapping a scarf to share?
I love it. Thanks for sharing. I’m going to try that when .I go out next
Oooh that’s clever! I am going to have to try that out now!
I love this and so glad you shared with all the Freshstitches fans!!! I’ve always avoided scarfs just because they felt like they were about ready to swallow me whole. When Steven B showed this tip during the PJ party it was like a huge lightbulb went off over my head!
Yay, I’m always looking for more suggestions on how to wear scarves!
wore my scarf that way today – loved it! Thanks so much for sharing
Great tip Stacey. Seems easy enough to remember. Wondering…how long was the scarf in the pic?Thanks
It’s pretty long! I’d guess it’s about 8 feet.
