Scarf Tutorial 5 – Head Wrap Bow

Happy Friday! We have a cute scarf style to show you today, but I’m afraid our images for our tutorial just didn’t turn out how we wanted them to, (we swear we’re not just slacking off because it’s Friday!) so you’re going to have to settle for our explanation instead. Good thing it’s a simple one!

So, this is one more of our favorite styles, the head wrap with a bow:

Scarf Tutorial 1

It really is quite an effortless look to achieve. Simply fold a large square scarf into a triangle, and, placing the middle of the folded edge against your neck, wrap around your head, tying at your forehead. Tuck in the edges so it looks nice, then tie the ends into a bow, and position it at your forehead, or by your ear.

Waa laa! Easy and adorable!

We are absolutely in love with the scarf we used for this style – we encourage you to hop on over to Etsy so you can see the whole thing laid out flat. It’s amazing.

That concludes our scarf week! We hoped you enjoyed the pieces we chose, and the tutorials we gave you! We’ll have some more scarves for you next week, so keep an eye on our shop, or like us on Facebook to get the first word when we put up something new.

Scarf Tutorial 2 – Rosette Turban

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.

Rosette Turban Tutorial 1

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.

Rosette Turban Tutorial 2

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.

Rosette Turban Tutorial 5

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.
