How to Tie a Murfee Scarf

You probably have at least one Murfee scarf from Lilly Pulitzer in your closet, right? Up until recently, I only had a few ways to tie my Murfee scarves. I could wrap it around my neck to have the ends fall in the front or the back. It also looks great in a simple knot, either low or high on the neck.  Probably my favorite way to wear the Murfee scarf was to fold the scarf in half lengthwise and then slide the ends through the loop.

One day, I accidently created a new way to tie the scarf and love it! Here's what you need to do. First, fold the scarf in half lengthwise and wrap it around the back of your neck.

Then pull one of the ends of the scarf through the loop.

Next, pull the other end of the scarf through the loops, weaving it in the opposite pattern as the first end of the scarf.  You'll notice that you should either start by going over or under the loop depending on how you pulled through the first end of the scarf. 

Finally, adjust the scarf so that it is comfortable around your neck and so that you can see the woven pattern of the tied Murfee.

How do you normally tie your Murfee scarf?


P.S. Sorry for the quality of the photos. My 10 year old fashion consultant, Alexia, wanted to help me with this, but since she's at least a foot shorter than me, she took the pictures on a non-flattering up angle, giving me 7 chins!  Ugh!
