After taking the time and effort to knit a special project, it only seems fitting to wear it a special way, too. I thought it would be fun to take a knitted scarf and show some of the beautiful and interesting ways it can be worn. In this post, I've used my Bubblegum Scarf, but the techniques shown here can be modified for any scarf. I hope they inspire you to experiment the next time you put on a handmade accessory!
Just fold your scarf in half, wrap it around your neck, and pull the ends through the loop created by the fold. One of the great things about this method is that, because the scarf is folded in half, it's twice as warm!
This method is just like the loop-through, but with a neat crossed bit in front. Fold the scarf in half, wrap it around your neck, pull one end through the loop created by the fold, and push the other end up through the underside of the loop. The ends should cross as shown here.
For this wrap, you'll need a bracelet, preferably an un-clasp-able one. Fold the scarf in half and wrap it around your neck. Holding the folded side together with the ends, wrap the bracelet around the scarf once or twice, and close the bracelet's clasp. I'm rather intrigued by this technique. Depending on the bracelet used, you could completely change the character of your scarf, from dressy to casual.
Just what is sounds like. Wrap the scarf around your neck and tie the ends in a big bow in the front.
Not quite as practical perhaps, but still fun. Wrap the scarf around your head and tie, arranging the ends as desired (here they hang down in front).
