A scarf tutorial

Thanks for the comments on the last post.  You've made my little boy's day.

Now, this post is long overdue.  I've been asked multiple times by many people to show them how I tie my scarves.  Somehow, the head scarf has become a part of my signature look.  Whenever anyone we know wears one, I get told that it reminds them of me.  I am flattered and inspired, so I decided it was about time to try my very first tutorial.


Most of my scarves are 100% silk (or silk like).  I'm lucky I can get them inexpensively in Stanley Market.  I think having a scarf in silky material is part of what creates the gathered, turban-like appearance.

Step 1:  Use a square scarf and lay out like a diamond.

Step 2: Fold about one third of the scarf up.

Step 3:  Fold top third of the scarf down so it overlaps with the other corner.

Step 4:  Fold bottom edge up to the middle.

Step 5:  Repeat previous step and fold the top edge down.
(Note: Do not flatten the scarf or make it too narrow. I find if you leave it uncreased, you have more volume to help create the wrap around look).

Step 6:  With your hair in a top knot, place the scarf behind your head at the nape of your neck.

Step 7:  Bring both ends of the scarf up, cross over and bring ends back around to nape of your neck.
(A variation of this is to twist at the top before bringing the ends back around).

Step 8:  Tie into a knot.  (Don't worry if the tag is showing, you'll tuck the ends in later).


Step 9:  Take ends and tuck in.

Step 10:  Pull knot up and tuck under the scarf to make it look clean.

Step 11:  Adjust scarf so the knot is completely hidden.  You may need to adjust a few areas in front as well, but play around a bit to see what looks good and feels comfortable.

And, that's it. You're done!

I hope you can follow my steps.  I wear scarves so frequently that this is really an intuitive process now.  I had to slow myself down to think about what the steps were and then have Buddy photograph each one.  Feel free to leave me a comment if you have any questions.
