As a crochet enthusiast and instructor, I get to play with lots of scarves of all sorts of styles, widths, and lengths. My very favorite scarf is a long one that I can experiment with fun ways to knot and wear and today I'm going to share with you my go to scarf tie!

I don't know if this particular method of knotting a scarf has a name, or even where I learned it because I've seen similar methods when perusing scarf tying tutorials, but nothing that's quite the same. I've had a lot of people inquire about it, though, so here we go!

Begin by draping the scarf over your shoulders backwards and more or less centered.

Cross the ends in the back and then bring them forward over your shoulders.

Give the loop in the center a half twist from right to left.

Pull the end on your left side (as you look down at it) down through the loop.

Pull the end on your right side up through the loop. This kind of creates a square knot!

Snug it up as much or as little as you like and voilà!

I hope you enjoy this fun little knot as much as I do and thanks for taking a look at my tutorial! If you'd like to know more about the scarf itself, or perhaps learn to crochet your own scarf, customized to fit YOU, check out my class, Crochet Basics: From Skein to Scarf!

Side note: taking these photos was the last thing I did before my water broke - it happened less than 30 minutes after I finished! O.O

14 hours later, I got to meet our son. <3

I'm a yarnaholic. Fiber enthusiast. Artist at heart. A creative being. My husband might call me a hoarder... but we won't talk about that! Crochet is my passion, but I also enjoy making jewelry, painting, drawing, cross-stitching, scrapbooking, and even doing a little knitting. Reading, hiking, and simply spending time with my family are also favorite pastimes. My latest obsession? Nail art. When I was about twelve, my mother made me learn to crochet, which I hated because she had me make a doily, which I saw absolutely no point in! Through high school and college, I found little to no time for crafts of any sort, unfortunately, but after an eleven month deployment with the Army to Kuwait, I realized that I missed it quite a bit. I relearned how to crochet upon my return and did a few custom pieces of jewelry as well, but it wasn't until after I got married in May of 2009 that I really began to get back to my creative roots. Thanks to my wonderful husband, who is amazingly supportive of my attempt at becoming a starving artist, I have once again fully embraced my love of creating with my hands, primarily in the form of fiber arts. I spend most of my time crocheting (around the housework and whatnot), primarily custom orders and special projects, and have recently discovered the joys of designing my own patterns, which I hope to be the next chapter in my creative journey. Or that's how it used to be before the latest member of the family came along. Now I spend most of my time chasing after my son, who never EVER stops moving. Even when he sleeps. He probably gets that from me... But he has only made my passion for crochet grow stronger, perhaps in my desperation to hang on to part of what makes me ME: creativity.  And I want to share that with YOU. So come along with me on this little adventure and enjoy!
