I don’t know why I really thought spring was already in the air, when I’m pretty sure we still have at least a month and half of winter to go…but I’m so ready for spring already!
However, I have to say that this winter has been one of the most productive winters I’ve had in years – find out how I managed it here- and I’m so happy I was able to get off my back and get things done, finally!
Blanket scarves are exactly what they sound like: scarves that are big enough to use as a blanket. Typically they come in an extremely oversized square shape, which is what makes them different from all the other scarves in your closet. It might sound crazy to wear a scarf that big, but during the long, cold winter days, they can be lifesavers.
Besides the fact that they make you feel as if you’re still in the comfort of your warm, cozy bed, when in fact you’re out in the freezing cold, they can always make and never break an outfit,
I call it the ‘I-can-turn-any-outfit-into-a-stylish-one-ASAP’ trait.
From fashion gurus to fashion learners, the SCARF is around each and everyone’s neck. This winter, more than ever, I feel there has been a “back to accessories” phase in fashion, and we have to make the best of it.
So now, It’s no longer a secret, this accessory is not only for saving yourself from the cold by protecting your neck, it’s here to underline your unique style.

How to Make a Blanket Scarf :
Not thrilled about the idea of shelling out big bucks for a blanket scarf? Can’t find one you like in stores? Or are you just a sucker for a DIY project? “Blanket scarves are so easy to make,” says Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs, co-founder of Livari Clothing. (They’re also the perfect handmade gift for a friend, she says.) Here are 5 steps to make one, with no sewing machine, according to her :
Step 1: Choose the fabric that’s right for your look, focusing on anything that’s super-soft to the touch.
Step 2: Measure the amount of fabric you’ll need by wrapping it around your torso so you’re completely covered (no need for measuring tape!).
Step 3: Cut the fabric, then use a pin at the edge to pull out the first few lines of stitches. This will fray the ends a bit.
Step 4: Repeat Step 3 on all four sides of the fabric.
Step 5: Trim any loose or stray threads and voila! You’ve got yourself a blanket scarf with a boho-inspired frayed edge.
