Today, I’m going to show you how to create a breathtaking scarf flower as well as 4 ways to wear it. Simply follow along with this step-by-step tutorial. Let's get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Large, square silk scarf
Tying ends

1. Make a triangle and tie the ends

Fold a large scarf into a triangle. Then tie the ends in a double knot with minimal material for the tails.

2. Place the scarf on your arm and bring one end through

Place the knot on your arm and then grab the corner that’s under that arm and pull it through the opening to meet the other corner. 

Crossing ends

3. Cross the ends 

Cross those ends once.

Pulling tail through

4. Pull a tail through to move the knot

Pull the tail that’s closer to the knot through the opening that’s under the knot. This will slip the knot portion to the center.

5. Pull the tails 

Now, pull at either end slowly until…
