Scarf Styling Tutorial - Part II, The French Loop

For part two of this scarf tying series (see part one here), I've chosen a technique that is known by several names I'm aware of including the 'Euro Loop', which sounds like currency to me. Since I became enamored of this style while in Paris, I've settled on the name "French Loop." 

This style is chic, very easy to learn and speedy to execute, and it requires a long, narrow scarf like the one I used for this tutorial (a version of my Frostlight scarf pattern, knit in Fiber Optic's Superwash Merino Worsted yarn).

Step 1: Fold the scarf in half and drape it around the neck.

Step 2: Pull both free ends of the scarf through the looped end and adjust the loop to your desired length.

The French Loop can be worn centered or off to one side as shown in the photo at the top of this post. That's all there is to it - easy peasy!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I wish you much fun with scarf styling!
