While spending countless hours browsing tumblr at 3:00am, I came across this photo of a Hermès scarf, knotted, as a necklace. Now, it may have been the sleep deprivation, but I'm pretty sure I got more excited then I probably should have about this idea. Needless to say, I have now turned all of my head scarves into necklaces. By no means is this my idea, but I received a large volume of emails asking how I did this so neatly, so I thought I'd show you.
Lay a square silk or thin polyester scarf flat on the floor/bed/table. Take two opposing corners and fold them into the middle of the square like so. Continue to fold the scarf inwards until you are left with a narrow strip of fabric.
Start knotting the strip, making sure each knot is a few inches away from the previous one. I found that when I tried to pick up the scarf, the folded pieces would fall apart, so I left it on the floor, folding the section I wanted to knot, and I found this easier. Remember to leave enough of the scarf un-knotted on either side to tie around your neck
Personally, I like to wear my scarf with 3 knots but you can add as many or as few knows as you'd like. For a single knot minimalist version, only tie one knot in the middle of your scarf. There you have it, a simple way to wear your scarves as necklaces.
