How to Tie A Square Scarf

Let’s talk about how to tie a square blanket scarf, shall we?! Aside from a hair tutorial (which I’ll get to eventually…), how to tie a scarf is one of the most asked questions I get from y’all, so I decided to make a little step-by-step tutorial showing you EXACTLY how I do it! I did my best to capture each and every step that I go through when ‘styling’ my square blanket scarves, but if I missed anything or if you still have questions please let me know!

Hopefully, the steps are pretty self explanatory but just in case, I’ll briefly explain how I do it.

First, find 2 opposite corners and fold the square scarf into a perfect triangle. Then, grab the two corners at either edge of the fold and hold the folded scarf in front of you (kind of like a giant bandana). Lastly. criss cross these corners around your next and hide the edges under so it looks like one big, cozy scarf. (wow that’s REALLY hard to explain with words – I think the photos do a much better job…)

I want to note that this technique only really works for SQUARE blanket scarves – there are other methods for typing rectangle shaped ones (but those offer a completely different “look” all together if you ask me). So what did you think? Are you going to be able to explain to your mom (because she’s totally going to ask) how to tie a square scarf? Or if it’s not your mom, then maybe your friends! But regardless, everyone needs to know this little style trick and hopefully you’re a master now!

Still have questions? Comment below! or email me and I’d be happy to try and answer them!
