Hello again! We’re back for our third tutorial, and this time we’re showing you how to do something fun with a much smaller scarf. There are plenty of very small scarves out there that are beautiful, but aren’t as versatile to wear as a larger scarf that can be tied into dozens of styles. The one we’re using for our how-to today is a big favorite of ours (how cute is this heart print?!), and we’re happy to inspire you with one way to show it off.
This Fleur de Lis fold is actually a napkin folding technique, but we think it makes a cute and playfold fold for a pocket square! Tuck it in your jacket pocket for a traditional look, or let it hang out of the back pocket of your jeans for an unexpected pop of personality.
Start with a small square scarf. Fold in half into a triangle. Then pick up the bottom left corner and fold up to the top…
…and the bottom right corner up to the top as well. Now take the bottom corner and fold it 2/3 of the way up to the top…
…and then fold the top of it back down. Grab the right side and tuck it under the whole scarf, rolling it in half to fit neatly in the middle of the back.
Then fold the left side all the way around (making a little burrito!), and tuck the corner under the fold in the middle front to secure it. Fluff out the points at the top, et voila! A perfect Fleur de Lis for tucking wherever you like!
Sure, you could just cram the whole scarf in your pocket, and foof out the ends to get a similar effect, but with the Fleur de Lis fold it will stay neat and tidy all day!
