We’re back today with another scarf tutorial!
This has been a popular year for turbans and head-wraps among the trendy. We have seen a lot of wonderful how-to’s out there for basic, easy, turban-inspired styles. Rather than give you a repeat, today we’d like to show you a more complicated trick – a full turban with a rosette on the side! This look takes a little practice to perfect, but the effort is worth it.
Use a long rectangle scarf for this, or a large square folded over into a triangle.
Put the middle of the folded edge of the triangle (or the middle of the rectangle) at your forehead, with the point at your back.
Leaving the middle corner loose, take the other two corners and tie them on one side of your head.
Tuck and fold the back in neatly!
Now double that tie on the side to make a knot. Take the smaller end of the tie and twist it.
Wrap the twist around the other end of the tie, and around the knot in a spiral, tucking the end into the knot.
Repeat with the other tie, tucking in well.
Adjust, and enjoy your gorgeous little turban!
For this technique we liked the softer colors of our ‘Alice’ scarf – a silk/rayon blend from the 1950’s, patterned with puffs of thistle colored flowers.
