Tying Scarves: The Holiday Bow

Holiday Bow Scarf Knot

So this knot is a little more complicated and delicate, and it doesn't do all that much for keeping my neck warm, but I love to wear it at this time of year. I take a big, heavy scarf in a bright color (see what I worked with below) and feel super festive.

Holiday Bow Scarf Knot

Here's how:

Holiday Bow Scarf Knot

To start, bring the scarf over your neck in a single layer, with one side about 30% longer than the other. This is the side that will become your bow.

Fold the bottom foot or so of the long end back up.

Do that again (the top of the folds should be about even with your collar bone now).

Hold the folded section in the middle.

Use the other end of the scarf to secure it, wrapping around the middle of the folds twice. (Make sure to always bring the end up into the middle of the circle formed by the scarf, as you see below. Otherwise the whole thing will fall apart!)

Let the end of the scarf hang forward as the tail of the bow, and rearrange the loops. Set at a jaunty angle and/or apply sparkles to everything, and set off to a holiday party!
