How to Tie a Blanket Scarf: 2 Ways

Recently my blog buddy Megan of MeginTime shared a post and video about how she tied her scarf. In her post, she tagged me to share my "scarf tying secrets" for the scarf I wore in this post. To be honest, I don't remember exactly how I tied my scarf in that look, but I tried my best to recreate that look, and also the tie from this post here.

  1. Take a long blanket scarf and fold it in half length-wise.
  2. Fold in half to find the center point.
  3. Place that point around your neck and tie ends.
  4. Take one end and twist through the loop around your neck. 
  5. Repeat that step (with the same end) and twist through the loop again.
  6. Take what's left of that same end (there shouldn't be much) and tuck it under the loop.
  7. Now, take the other end and do the same thing, twisting it around the loop, then tucking the end underneath. 
  8. You may need to fluff it a bit, pulling at each twist a little, to get the look you want.

  1. For this look, use an extra-large square scarf.
  2. Fold it in half diagonally and hold so that the triangle points down towards your feet.
  3. Holding the ends, pull the scarf towards your neck (triangle is pointing down).
  4. Cross the ends in the back and pull them to the front.
  5. Take those ends and tie them (they will be on top of the other part of the scarf, the larger part).
  6. Fluff that knot (pull the ends or twist the knot itself) so that the ends point downwards rather than out to the side. 


Do you have any scarf-tying tricks? I'd love to hear them!

My rectangular plaid blanket scarf is from Target, and my square plaid blanket scarf is from SheIn, but here are a few others to choose from.
