Braid a Scarf


So Cute and So Easy! Here are the steps to How to Braid a Scarf from which I learned in Israel.

Step One: Tie a basic knot, leave enough room to slip the hole around your head.


Step Two: Turn your knot as seen in the picture. See three parts of the scarf you can braid with. The first is by my left thumb. The second is the middle part which is touching my left middle finger and the third part my right thumb is touching. With these three parts, start braiding.



Step Three: let the ends of the braid fall loose, throw it over your head and have the braided side on your left or right side. Beautiful!

  2. I just did this will all of my scarves, and they look awesome. IMHO, it looks best on skinny scarves, the braid is more defined:) Thanks so much for the tip!

  5. This looks lovely- I'm going to give it a try. I wonder if I could use it as a decoration over a headscarf, rather than around the neck, where I'm often hesitant to add bulk.

    1. I just used a long scarf and left the ends at least half a foot long. Seems to stay really well!!!

  14. Eeek, that sounded terrible - my partner has Hebrew roots so I wasn't even thinking that I was posting in a public domain. Apologies if I have offended anyone.

  21. I attached a pin to 2 of the end pieces to hold it together because my braid didn't want to stay. It worked really well and looked even cuter! Thanks for the great idea!
