I’m a firm believer in the idea of the “silk necklace” way of wearing a scarf. Basically, this is the idea of finding a way to tie a scarf so that it doesn’t dangle, flap, blow in the wind, or droop down onto your desk or dinner table – a scarf that you can put on and not worry about, rather as you would wear a necklace.
The essential thing to do is to get a lot of the fabric into some sort of decorative knot, and then tie the tiny loose ends around your neck. Your scarf is then out of your line of vision most of the time, and won’t really migrate around your neck.
To make this knot, I basically just “crocheted” about three stitches (you know, make a loop, and then pull the fabric through the loop to create a new loop, etc. etc. When you have enough knot, you just pull the end of the scarf through the loop. Magically enough, I was able to create the perfectly symmetric example above first try!
AND… this is a great way to wear scarves that have large spots. The scarf shown here has a couple of very noticeable spots in one corner, but that corner is folded into the middle of the bias fold, and then knotted into oblivious! (I’ll sell this scarf to the first person to offer me $125 for it, by the way. I never wear pastels, which makes keeping this scarf sort of silly!)
I feel that it’s a real pity not to wear scarves because you fear that they will get in your way, or because the weather is too warm…
