Scarf Tying Tutorial

Today I bring you my first-ever video post, featuring a couple of different scarf-tying methods that I've gotten questions about from time to time. For more methods, check out Sal's video tutorial; the ones I'm showing here are just the ones that I haven't seen described anywhere else (not that I've looked particularly hard). If you listen carefully at the beginning of the video, you can hear a siren outside and then the neighbor's dog howling at it. Ah, city living.

In addition to the helpful techniques, it was so interesting to hear your voice and your speech pattern!

THANK YOU!!!! I always love seeing new ways to tie scarves. I have watched several videos and have never seen either of these techniques. I will be trying one tomorrow for sure. I appreciate you taking time to make the video. Love it!!

Carrie said...

awesome -thanks a lot! Got this and Sal's bookmarked!

Luinae said...

These are both new ones to be Audi, so thank you! I especially like the first one, as I have so many pashminas. You should do more videos, you're quite good at them

Alli said...

Thanks so much for the tutorial, this is so helpful! I have lots of silky scarves, so it's nice to have a way to keep them in place.

Also, I agree with those above, it was neat to hear your voice.

notSupermum said...

Great tutorial. I wear scarves almost everyday but I was unfamiliar with those two techniques, so thank you. I'll be using the second one a lot as I can never keep my silky scarves from unravelling during the day

Btw, you sound exactly as I had expected. Calm and cool.

evanadine said...

both new techniques to me, and this time of year, i am wearing scarves a LOT! like you, i hate "maintaining" them during the day, so i will definitely be trying these out with my next scarved outfit!

maryeb said...

Great job. Thanks so much.

Plus Size Bride said...

VERY HELPFUL! I used to wear scarves all the time when I was in my 20's now I am just clueless as to how to even buy one.

Sal said...

Fantastic! I love them both, and haven't seen tutorials for either anywhere else. Thanks for sharing these, lady.

Julie said...

I love wearing scarves, so thanks for sharing these two different ways to get them to stay put!

Karin said...

Thanks Audi, I didn't know these techniques and they look really great! By the way, lovely to see you in motion and hear your voice.

Deja Pseu said...

Fabulous tutorial! I tried the first one this morning and it worked brilliantly. Love how it stays put too.

Secondhand Shopaholic said...

I love this tutorial!! The first method is brilliant, and the extra knotting tip on the second is something I haven't seen, so thanks!

I am going to post a link to this tutorial on my blog, if that's ok. This one, and the Buyer's remorse tips - I'm totally going to use those (but of course, give credit to you!!)

A said...

Audi, this is awesome! thanks so much for posting this. I LOVE the first one! I actually took my scarf I have with me today and practiced while watching. :-) I will use this tie tonight on my way home (with my overwear!)

Natalie said...

That was AWESOME! Thank you! I love scarves but really dislike adjusting them constantly. Thanks for taking the time to post this!

Eyeliah said...

Thanks you, so seriously helpful! I'm saving this in my starred posts in google reader. :)

Emily Kennedy said...

You're so awesome!

I have never had a clue how to wear silky scarfs and sadly, I've given away more than a few because they are just unusable if they're vacillating between full on choke tight and falling off. Thank you!

La Historiadora de Moda said...

Thank you for the tutorial, Audi! I love that second scarf of yours!

I nominated you for a blog award over at Fashionable Academics. Thanks for constantly inspiring!

angie said...

I really enjoyed watching your video, Audi! You spoke clearly and slowly which is important in a tutorial. It was also short and that’s extra fab. These are excellent ways to tie scarves both visually and practically. You are a scarf tying pro. Thanks for sharing!

Erika said...

Thanks, Audi. These techniques are easy to follow, and my scarf currently looks great thanks to the first method!

Laura. said...

these are great techniques and you are really great on camera. i'm excited to switch up my scarf style now! (i never go scarfless twixt nov and april.)

Jo said...

These are fantastic scarf tying techniques. I have a "filmy" scarf that I have yet to wear cause I didn't want it looking like my grandma's scarf. Now I have a tying technique that will make it more up to date.

Thanks!

spezzella said...

I really enjoyed learning these new scarf tying techniques. I found your tutorial very helpful! I just wanted to let you know that I mentioned this post in my blog today because I tried one of your techniques recently.

Karyn said...

Thank you!

Bella said...

I just came across this post and it's been a life saver. All these years I've suffered from that "gap in the neckline" from not knowing how to properly tie a scarf. Now I don't have to thanks to your tutorial! I don't usually wear the silky scarves but now I know that if I come across a good deal, I can buy it cause I know how to tie it---thanks to you!

SFKelly said...

Wow, very helpful! I've been wearing scarves and neckerchiefs for year, but these techniques were new to me. Thanks so much!

Angela said...

THANK YOU! I'm going to back to work soon after neck surgery, and I'm self-conscious about the scar. These techniques will help!

KC said...

Cool techniques! If you're looking for more unique ways to wear a scarf, be sure to check out the Theodora & Callum website. It's a new accessories line by Stefani Greenfield. My favorite is to wear a scarf like a dress! http://www.theodoraandcallum.com/
