It has been cold in Dallas lately! We completely skipped over fall and went straight to winter, so I broke out my blanket scarves last weekend and had to share some fun ways to tie them!
Growing up and going to school in Ohio, I could not own enough scarves. I loved wearing them and pairing a new one to change up my bulky winter coat look. It was the best way to change up my outdoor style in the winter. Needless to say, I got creative with the styling of my scarves as well, so in this post, I’m sharing how to tie a blanket scarf in 11 different ways. Most styles can be done with either a square scarf or a large rectangle scarf.
How to Tie a Blanket Scarf 11 Different Ways
1. Let it Hang
- Hang around your neck evenly on each side.
- Leave long or throw one side over your shoulder.
2. The Standard Wrap
- Let scarf hang around the neck with one side longer than the other.
- Wrap the longer side around the front of your neck and around to the first side.
3. Slip Knot
- Fold the scarf in half evenly.
- Place the center of the folded scarf around the back of your neck.
- Put one hand through the loop and grasp the other side.
