Scarf Tying Tutorial - The ONLY way tie your scarf...

...in my humble opinion, that is!

I'm asked constantly about how I tie my scarves - pretty much every time I put a picture where I'm wearing a scarf on Instagram or Facebook. But I'm a shy type and have always steered clear of video.

In the past, I've shared some of the videos that are most popular online like Wendy's 25 ways to tie a scarf but while this video is amazing and so well produced and edited, I don't believe that any of us need 25 ways to tie our scarves. I also think so many of the options are complicated and a bit over worked. And most are suited to a particular type of scarf only.

The most gorgeous looks on Pinterest and Instagram have an effortless air about them and that needs to include how your scarf is tied. It needs to look like you just 'threw it on'. So how to achieve this look?

Well, here goes....my first (and probably last) video. Be gentle with me....it took WAY too much of my day yesterday and I am slightly traumatised at now having a presence on YouTube. I also dithered over calling it the ONLY way or the ONE way....so it's got a bit of both thanks to the technology getting the better of me.
Having said all that, I hope you enjoy it and find it useful....oh and remember the key to great scarf tying - start with a corner!
