I’ve been seeing these scarves all over the internet but I didn’t have one until Denise from Fruit Jar Studio sent me one to review for our holiday gift guide. Then I had to do a little research to learn how to wear a skinny scarf! I found lots of ideas that I’ll share with you in this post.

How to Wear a Skinny Scarf
True, this scarf isn’t as skinny as many I’ve seen. But it’s thinner than any that I have, about 8″ x 54″. At first I thought a light scarf like this wouldn’t keep me very warm. And it’s true, it’s not a thick and fuzzy as some of the scarves I crochet. But, especially when I wrapped it around my neck like this first photo, it kept the chill off! This would be a great scarf to wear indoors. Especially if you work in a chilly office. It’s not too bulky to wear all day.
This photo shows the scarf wrapped around twice and tied in the front. I like the knot a little to one side.
The next photo shows the same style but I moved the knot to the front and secured it with one of my favorite Lilla Rose flexi clips. This is the “Majestic Cross” flexi.
In the next photo I wrapped the scarf around twice, tucked in the ends, and secured it with the heart flexi from Lilla Rose. If your neck is thin you can wrap it around three times and not have much left over to tuck in.
Here’s a quick video to show you three more ways to tie a long, thin scarf.
More ideas: This scarf is thin enough to tie around your head and wear as a headband. Or you could run it through the belt loops on your jeans.
