How to Wear a Scarf

I love the look of scarves.  They're a fun way to brighten up a drab outfit, and in the middle of winter, it's nice to have a scarf, especially a big scarf that you can take off your neck and use as an extra little wrap if you end up someplace chilly.  But I've definitely been in a scarf rut.  I see other people wearing scarves wrapped in fancy ways with stylish knots while I tend to either go for the "wrap around neck and let the ends hang in front" method or I just throw on an infinity scarf wrapped 3 or 4 times around my neck.  So I was very interested when someone posted this "25 Ways to Wear a Scarf" video on Ravelry yesterday!

Apparently, my "rut" style is also called "The European Loop".  On this video, I found a few new styles I look forward to trying.  I am partial to "The Magic Trick", "The Fake Knot", and "The Braid". What are your favorites?

I love the idea of giving someone a handmade scarf and writing the web address to this video on the accompanying card.  I think more people would wear scarves if they just felt like they had options other than "wrap around neck."

I just took a look at this post on my phone and realized that the video won't play on devices that don't have a flash player (sorry, iPhone users!)  Take a look next time you're on a device that does support's a really useful video!
