Scarves have become popular again over the last few years. So I was delighted when I spotted Franchesca Leigh Ramsey's Twitpic of her fabulous scarf necklace some time ago. She is a video blogger and a self confessed hair obsessed graphic designer based in New York City.
So many people loved her wrapped silk scarf that she made a fun Youtube video showing how to do it yourself. It's a beautiful way to dress up a plain outfit. Perfect for cooler weather or frigid air-conditioned offices in hot climes!
Before she posted her video tutorial, I actually grabbed one of my scarves and tried to make a scarf necklace myself. It's not as neat as Franchesca's way but it is quick!
I used a long rectangular scarf which measured 36" when folded into half. I tied a simple but firm knot at the folded end.
Then I adjusted the knot so it looked tidier and more like a pendant! Then I tucked in the two ends to form a necklace! That's it!
It is a looser look than Franchesca's.

An even easier way to create a scarf necklace is to marry a large link necklace with a light scarf. See April's clever idea over at her blog Knocked Up Fabulous.
