Scarves and neckerchiefs are a big thing this cold season. In this post and some upcoming Ageless Style posts, I want to share some of my secrets how to tie a scarf beyond the usual knot. Today I start out with braiding a scarf to a necklace.
I saw this style for the first time when I worked in Leipzig, Germany. My colleague Karin had tied her oblong scarf this way and she taught me how she did it. Thanks again, Karin. ❤
Lay an oblong long scarf down to a U-shape. Then place one of the ends rectangular over the other end. The ends should be the same length. Note that it is important to do so at such a distance that the created loop is wide enough to put your head thru later once the braid is done.
Now pull the loop and the two ends down to have three wisps of the scarf for a braid.
Braid the scarf until the two ends are used up. Make a small knot. Turn the braided scarf around and secure the knot and braid with a brooch.
Pull the scarf over your head so the brooch is showing. That’s it. 🙂
