How to Make Three Buttoning Designs from Fringed Scarvescomments (3) March 20th, 2009
This style has the scarf wrapping around your neck as many times as needed for the two ends to just touch, making for a fitted cowl. Make sure your scarf is a good length for this—wrap it around your neck with the two ends meeting in front (so there will be some twisting in the back), and make sure it's fitted but not too tight. (My scarf here was the same size as the first one, about 4.5 feet by 6 inches.)
To make this version, simply tie three pairs of fringe strands so they're knotted at the tips to make loops, two on one end of the scarf and one on the other end. On the first side, tie the two endmost fringe strands to each other on each end so you have two loops on the two scarf corners. On the other side, find the centermost pair of fringe strands and tie them together.
Sew on buttons opposite the loops, as seen in the photo above. For this one, I used large sew-through buttons. As in the first version, make sure your buttons are not too small for the loops to hold on to. Then try on your new accessory—wrap it around your neck, position the two ends on top in the front (or a little off-center), and button it up!
