Put a Bow On It: Scarf Edition

I've recently Instagrammed a few OOTD's (outfit of the day's) with scarves tied like a bow! A few of y'all have inquired about how to do it and even tried it on your own!

For those of you who have tried, you know, it's SO EASY. If you can tie your shoes, you can tie your scarf. You literally follow the exact same steps:
The steps go L-R top then L-R bottom!

Step 1: Lay your scarf with equal tails on each side. 
Step 2: Make a simple knot, like the first step when you'd tie your shoes.
Step 3: Pull one loop through, then followed by the other side. Again, just think, shoe tying!
Step 4: It will be lopsided. Choose to adjust or tie again!
Step 5: Adjusting
Step 6: Pull the loops to be wider so you can really see the bow!

Voila, you've just tied your scarf in a bow! Really, I follow the EXACT same steps like you would tie your shoelaces, so if in doubt, keep that in mind!

Give it a shot, and if you wear your scarf in a bow, tag me on Instagram @letsbepreppy so I can see your scarf bows! I'll post the best ones!

Thanks for posting this!! My roommate saw a chunky scarf from anthro with a bow on - for $80!! Needless to say she didn't buy it and I tried to tell her it was totally a DIY thing! Now I can show it! Great steps! :)
