How To Tie a Scarf #3 (The Criss Cross)

In fall, winter & spring typically stores stock up on scarfs.  All kinds of them small, square, long, thick, thin and in all colors and fabrics.  Scarfs are a great accessory that are often over looked and so easy to wear.   They can add a pop of color, pattern, or interest to an outfit.  Think of them as a fabric necklace.

Side Note: I often add a smaller square scarf as an accessory to my purse (clearly I love accessories).
Here is what I call the Criss Cross.  For this one you will need a long scarf.  It can be thick or thin.
For this look I selected the light aqua scarf on the left
  1. You are going to first do what I call the swoop (Click here for video)
    • Hold on to the scarf as far to each end as you can
    • Then put it behind your head (now you have it hanging both ends hanging down your front)
    • Pull one end down (now you should still have both ends hanging down your front but one is longer than the other)
    • Take the longer end and wrap it around your neck, so both ends are hanging in front
    • Adjust as needed
  2. Reach your hand through the center of the scarf to grab part of the scarf that is hanging down
  3. Pull it through part way, so it creates a whole
  4. Reach your hand through the whole and grab part of the scarf that is hanging down on the opposite side
  5. Pull through
  6. That is it!
Let me know if you would like to see more easy ways to wear a scarf, or which scarfs I will be wearing this spring and summer.
