Foulard de la semaine

Here I’ve shown three easy ties for smaller square scarves.  These will also work for larger squares.  On the third option (necklace), you could do just a single knot if you prefer, or add more knots if the scarf is long enough.

This will probably be the last tutorial until after the holidays, but you can see this and all of the previous scarf videos here.

Bon weekend!

  1. I often use the cowboy but tie the knot in front. This is a good tie for wearing in cold climates, as the front-tie secures the scarf rather high on the neck, protecting it from cold wind.

  2. Only recently discovered you and your scarves, for which I am grateful. My French sisters-in-law are mystified when I ask them how to tie a scarf like theirs-it’s natural for them, and they have a good laugh on me. Merci beaucoup.

  3. You look more and more French in these videos. Truly, you tie scarves in a way that most French women can’t. You have a gift!

  4. Duchesse – Yes, I do that with my larger scarves. These are too small to wrap back around, but these tend to be scarves I wear when the weather is warmer.

    metscan – thanks! It’s an unusual way to wear a scarf, and great for people who don’t like a lot of bulk around the neck (or for warmer weather).

    hostess – so glad you enjoyed! You have a great weekend too.

    Sue – thanks so much! I’m glad these have been helpful.

  5. Miss Janey – merci beaucoup! And I’m still just absolutely thrilled with Wendy’s ring. It’s such a spectacular piece.

    LBR – oh cherie, you are too kind!

    Jean(ne) in MN – I’m so very glad these tutorials are helpful! I’ve often found that asking French women about their style is kind of like asking them how they breathe. They give you one of those, “I don’t know, I just DO it” answers!

    Terri – the great thing about this one is that you can modify/adapt to work with a variety of scarf shapes and sizes. Have fun!

  6. materfamilias – thanks, and no, actually it’s yellow. Almost all of our walls in the house are some shade of yellow, which I’ve learned makes interior photography extremely difficult. We also have rather dim lighting, so I’m thinking I may need to record future videos during the day in natural light…

  7. Thank you for sharing, its amazing how much you can do with a basic scarf.
    My favorite was the last one, I cannot wait to try it out.
