New Scarf Knot, a.k.a. I Feel So Cool Right Now

I've seen all sorts of tutorials on Youtube and Pinterest advertising new ways to tie scarves, and while I haven't watched them all to know for sure, I think I figured out a new one that looks totally legit!

I tried it with a thicker scarf, but it didn't look as good. A long, lightweight scarf is what I used that looked best.

First, loop your scarf around your neck like this. Pretty standard.

Then, take your loop and twist it twice (either direction probably works, so long as it's the same direction!). Next, pull the ends of the scarf over and through the new loop like so.

You can leave a gap on either side of the twist, or tug the twist down (gently!) and fluff the outside of the scarf to fill it in a bit. 

And voila! A way to tie a scarf that's a little fancier than a plain knot, but still fills in your neck to keep it warmer (or in my case, to cover up an inconvenient neckline). I feel like "Lock and Key" could be an appropriate name for it, with the twist being like the key. Thoughts?

Enjoy!
