Fashion Scarf How-to
Tie the scarf
We all know the scarf folded in half lengthwise and draped around the neck with both ends passing through the loop. A friend showed me this beautiful flat 'braid' that keeps the scarf in place and is less bulky around the neck area. She first saw this technique in Tuscany.
2. Slip just one end through the loop, position the end the way you would like to see it when completed.
3. Twist the loop a half turn and slip the other scarf end through the loop. Arrange the second scarf end, at the loop to form folds and position the knot at center front. Keep the fabric around your neck loose forming a soft cowl.
The scarf shown is 100% cotton cheese cloth (often found in the food canning isle of the grocery store) The fabric has been tie dyed using small rubber bands to form the pattern and the whole length dipped in Rit Dye till the desired color pulled out and left to dry. The tie dye was done after the short ends were fringed and the long ends sewn. While still damp, the scarf was twisted to scrunch and crinkle the fabric.
