5 Easy Ways to Style a Blanket Scarf

A blanket scarf is hands down my #1 fall and winter style accessory. I get asked all the time how I wrap my scarf and make it look cute and not just like a frumpy ball of warmth, so I thought I’d make a little how-to for everyone.

The scarf featured I got in Target’s Dollar Section a couple years ago. Even though it was $7, that is still such a freaking steal!! I honestly get all my blanket scarfs from Target’s Dollar Section, because they’re WAY cheaper than almost all others and still great quality and they always have different color combos every year!


  1. Simple Lay Over: Fold your blanket scarf in half diagonally. It should look like a triangle when you do so. Slightly fold or twist a couple times and drape around next with two longest ends in the front.

2. Wrap and Tie: Again with your blanket folded into a triangle, but this time drape it around your neck with the two long ends behind you and then wrap one more time so the long ends are back in the front. Lastly, fold one end over the other to create a knot.

3. Simple Knot: Drape the scarf around your next exactly how you did in #1, then fold one end over the other to create a loose knot. All done!

4. The Hidden Knot: While holding your blanket scarf in an upside down triangle (meaning the largest angle in facing the floor) drape it around your neck so the two ends are behind you. Next, wrap the two ends behind you once more, bringing them to the front. Lastly, behind the large front triangle you’ve created, tie the two ends in a knot to keep the scarf from coming loose while moving around and whatnot.

5. Imitation Infinity Scarf: Follow the same directions has above, but instead of leaving the largest triangle part loose, tuck it up into the hidden knot for the illusion for an infinity scarf.
