how to tie a ruffled scarf {video}

yay!  it took me weeks, but i finally figured out this video thing!  i have had a handful of you ask, “i have a ruffled scarf, now how do i wear it?”  so here’s a little video of several ways i tie mine:

sorry about the shakiness!  i’m still in the learning phase of this whole vlogging thing, and lesson learned: use a tripod!


i have a bunch of new ruffled scarves in my shop, just in time for you to learn to tie them.

6 new colors (above) were just added today to make 11 colors total (below) – wow!

i had a little fun playing with all those pretty colors!

these scarves are great for year round wear, even now in spring time weather – thin, light-weight jersey.  and when the breeze picks up just wrap up the scarf a little tighter!

a ruffled scarf pretties up the simplest of outfits – how great would a coral scarf be for easter sunday?

so do you wear your scarf any other ways?  do tell!


  1. 1

    You’re so cute! I always enjoy seeing bloggers that I read regularly “in person.”

    This was very helpful… mostly because I didn’t know you used elastic thread in the scarves. The stretchiness of it is really appealing. Thanks!

  2. 2

    YEAH! I totally appreciated the comment back explaining how you tie your ruffled scarf. I’m not sure that I ever responded back to you. THIS is even better. A how to video makes it even easier to be cute like you. ;) So excited for all the new colors, too. Next stop- purchasing my first PP Ruffled Scarf…assuming they are not all sold out again.
    So many colors- tough decision…

    oh, how fun to watch and listen to your sweet voice! I love these scarves so much, all lined up and gorgeous like the way you have them makes me want them ALL! :) I have one more week of the 30 for 30 remix challenge (no shopping)…hopefully you won’t be all sold out by the time I can shop again!!?

    again, very cute!!!

    Cute! I really like all the creative ways you have to wear your scarfs…I definitely would not have thought of most of those on my own!

  5. 5

    I love seeing/hearing the bloggers I love speak…and I think you’ve sold me on the scarve/petal pusher combo. I just may have to order some!

    OMG, you are too cute! Your voice is different than how I always imagined it when I read your blog posts and seeing you in action is so much different than the typical wiww still shots (although of course you are cute there, too.) :)

  20. 20

    Excellent video & you are adorable “in person”! I really need to get up the nerve & start doing some vlogging too! Now I think I need a ruffle scarf to go with my petal pusher! I didn’t think I would want one now, with the warmer weather approaching quickly, but you’re right about it being the perfect thing for chillier evenings! Off to shop. Hope they are not all gone!

  21. 21

    oh my goodness, you have just morphed into a cooler person, if it’s even possible. i’ve always loved your style and your wares (since i have a few) but, your voice just made you even more endearing to me! do you know what i mean? oh, you’ll have to start doing some more vlogs!

  22. 22

    Great tutorial. I love the ruffled scarf look with tees but don’t own any because I wasn’t sure how to wear them. And the pins are adorable. Have a great week.

  35. 35

    Ok…I LOVED hearing your voice!!! You are so cute!!!! Thanks for the tutorial! I am loving my pleated scarves and get complimented wherever I go in them. I may need to start carrying some business cards with me! :)

    Hope you are having a great day!

  37. 37

    Great video! Love the scarves.

  38. 38

    You did great! It is fun to finally hear your voice. I think without even realizing it, I imagine what bloggers’ voices are as I read. I like hearing the REAL one though.

    I love your kind, sweet demeanor. Hope you enjoyed your AWANA-time break tonight (just saw your Tweet).

    Thanks for the extra ruffle scarf tips. I get constant complements. Love the new colors!

    That video was so well done! Thank you for sharing, I loved all the ways you tied the scarf, especially the last one that turned the scarf into a cowl. I didn’t know how to do that so I learned something new! :) You are totally adorable, thanks again for sharing!

    how stinkin’ cute are you!?! it’s funny, you sound A LOT like i thought you would. funny how we kind of make up voices for people when you read their style of writing, isn’t it? anyway, love the video and the scarfs! now if only i could get one before they all sell out again!

    i LOVE the picture of all the colors all lined up! cutecutecute!

    Put aside a cream one for me at Queen Bee. I’ve been wanting one of these for such a long time!!!

    One of my favorite bloggers who always looks adorable in photos. But even cuter in video! Thanks for posting this video!

  44. 44

    I love getting to see my favorite bloggers on video! It gives me a better idea of who they are and makes me feel like I know them IRL (still hoping that really happens on one of my CA trips!) I also love the idea of the 3 different petal pushers. It’s been a thought in my mind for a while that I just kept forgetting to share.

  45. 45

    you are adorbs, lindsey!! i know this might sound weird, but i never thought your voice would sound that way. i mean, you read a blog and see pics of someone, but you never hear their voice, so i loved this vlog!! :)

  46. 46

    I said petal pushers, I meant posy pins :)

  47. 47

    Pretty photos!

  48. 48

    hayden and i saw you at the shop today and came home to check out your new goods. Love, love , love the scarves and the beee-u-teee-ful colors!!!

  49. 49

    Love the video…..I think I need to order a scarf now that I know several ways I can wear it:)
    I always enjoy your posts….even though I may not comment often. So fun to hear your voice!
    Love your style!!

    love that I can put a voice to the person I’ve looked at and read for years! great vlog!

    Hello! I enjoyed this video tutorial, thanks for sharing. One way I like to wear my ruffled scarf is by looping it around my neck (like how you have it at the beginning of the video) then to get the two ends and do a single pull-through knot in the center. One of my ruffled scarves is lace and pretty long, so this helps to get rid of a little of that extra lace, and makes it a little fuller beneath my neck. It’s also a great way to give the appearance of a ruffled blouse, when worn under a businessy-looking jacket. Just the other day, a girl told me she liked me shirt, when it was really just my scarf worn under a jacket! :)
