I have had several requests for a post on how to tie and wear a blanket scarf, so here you have it! They are great accessories and are really warm, but they can be very tricky to maneuver. Below I have listed four different tutorials on how you can wear these:
Option 1 - The Blanket Cape
Open the scarf completely, drape it around your shoulders and arms leaving the front open.
Adjust as necessary to make it even on both sides.
Option 2 - The Classic
This is probably the most popular way to tie a blanket scarf. Fold the square diagonally so that two corners match up forming a triangle. Gather the ends and put the center of the scarf in the middle of your body; then criss cross the ends behind your neck and pull them around to the front. Tuck each end of the scarf under to create the drapey look.
Options 3 - The Drape
Keep the scarf folded in the triangle shape; pull it around your shoulders draping one side across your body over the opposite shoulder. This creates an asymetrical look while still keeping your arms and shoulders warm.
Option 4 - The Infinity
This way makes the scarf look and function like an infinity scarf. Take the scarf folded on an angle and scrunch it up. Place the center around the back of your neck. Wrap each side around and tuck into the back. Tuck in any additional corners hanging out and adjust as necessary to create the circular form.
