What is a blanket scarf and how do you wear one? Have you got a few of these versatile pieces in your wardrobe? Don't know what I'm jabbering on about? Blanket scarves are extra large, almost blanket like in size and made of a soft, warm material (like a blanket).
I used my own blanket scarf as a guide for measuring. Most blanket scarves are about 55-56 inches square.
Then all you need to do is start fraying the edges by pulling out the threads that run horizontally. This can be a bit tedious and time consuming but I did mine while watching tv.
To tie a blanket scarf: Fold the scarf into a triangle and pick it up by the ends with the point facing down, hold in front of your body. Criss-cross the two ends around the back of your neck, continue to pull until the ends are in front. Tie the ends together and fluff up the scarf the way you like it.

I've been know to take one with me to the movies or in the car for extra warmth. They really are versatile and practical.
I also use the scarves around my house to add some coziness to my winter decor. This scarf was from Charming Charlie and I put it on the end of our bed when the room was done up for Christmas.
Here's another blanket scarf on the back of a chair (it's near the front door so I can grab it if I need it on the way out).
And to add a pop of color in the living room, I threw one over the piano bench. So are you sold on the merits of owning a blanket scarf (and making your own)?! Already a fan? Let me know in the comments.
