Tying Scarves: Celtic Knot

Who doesn't love wrapping up in a scarf? Over the years I've collected an interesting collection of knots, so I thought I would start a series to share a few of my favorites from time to time.

Tie a Celtic Knot in a Scarf

First up, the Celtic Knot. This is a tie that works best on long scarves and shawls, like the one you see above, with or without patterns. It keeps the fabric close around your neck, but it also bunches it up a bit, so it ranks about a medium on the warmth scale, depending on what kind of top it's paired with. Best of all, it's thoroughly unisex. I taught James how to tie it last year, and he wears it all the time. Here we go!

Start by bunching the scarf in the middle.

Still folded in half, bring it around the back of your neck.

Find the loop in the middle of the scarf, bring it forward, and pull one of the loose ends through it.

Twist the loop 180 degrees, so the side that was underneath is now on top . . .

And pull the second loose end through the new, standalone loop.

Adjust as needed, and remember these steps so you can demonstrate for friends, family, and strangers over the course of the day!
