How I Tie My Blanket Scarves [Video Tutorial] + 10 Affordable Blanket Scarf Options

How I Tie My Blanket Scarf

I’ve been asked so many times how I tie my blanket scarves, and while I know there are a million ways to tie a blanket scarf, I only ever do it one way.  Today I’m FINALLY showing you!  You can see how simple it is in this 1-minute video below!


Special Notes:

  • All my blanket scarves are squares, not rectangles.
  • Secure the ends together underneath with a hair tie to keep the scarf in place all day.
  • If blanket scarves are too bulky for you, you can cut square ones into a triangle so that you only have half the fabric.  You would then drape and tie it exactly like I show in the video, just without having to fold it in half first–you’ll be starting with a triangle already.  (I’ve never done this since I buy blanket scarves because I actually want the warmth and bulkiness.  But tons and tons of women in the PMT Challenges group have done it.  Just cut the diagonal–no need to sew up the edge or anything.)



There are a million blanket scarves out there, so here are a few prints and colors I love.  They are all between $9.99-$12.99!  And, if you end up cutting yours in half, you can swap other halves with a friend and double your scarf collection for free!

I own Option 1, a lookalike to Option 5, and a lookalike to Option 9.  The first two are my favorite and most worn scarves, but for a long time I’ve thought about adding Option 3 and Option 10 to my collection someday!
