I paired this blanket scarf with a simple pair of Old Navy Skinny Jeans and a J.Crew white long sleeve shirt. I also wore a Mint Green J.Crew Vest and my monogram duck boots. These were a Christmas gift so I am not sure where they are from but here is a similar pair.

I like wearing my blanket scarves by folding them into a triangle shape and then wrapping it around my neck.

Here is an image I found online for how I like to tie my blanket scarves!

Hi everyone! I’m Rebecca from @tailoredtorebecca on Instagram! I’ve worked with Molly on a few projects over the last year and I am so excited to do this guest post on her blog!

My favorite fall trend this year is the blanket scarf! Like, you’re literally wearing a blanket, does it get any better than that?! One of the best things about blanket scarves is that are super easy to DIY! Today I’m going to walk you through step by step to make your own blanket scarf for under $10!
First you need to buy your fabric! My favorite fabric store is JoAnn fabrics, they seem to have the best selection in my area, but you can also try Hobby Lobby or a local fabric shop! If you’re not familiar with the layout of your fabric store, you can ask an associate to show you where they have plaid flannel!

So this is the only hard part, deciding which print to buy!! Haha! Once you decide on a color, take a look at the label on the end of the bolt, you will see a width measurement in inches, it will probably be around 40″-44″, mine was 41″.

Take that entire bolt of fabric up to the cutting table, and to get a square blanket scarf, you can just ask them to cut the same number of inches as the width, so I asked them to cut me 41″. If they don’t cut in inches, ask for 1-1/4 yards.

When you get home lay your fabric out flat, and grab a pair of sharp scissors. You will notice the edges of where your fabric was cut is probably not even with the lines of the plaid. Find a line in the plaid that goes all the way top to bottom on one side, and cut the extra fabric off right along that line. Repeat on all 4 sides.
Once all 4 sides are even, you can start fraying the edges! You can use a pin (or even an earring!) to start pulling a couple threads at a time away from the corner.
You will want to pull these at about a 45 degree angle, if you pull them straight out they can get tangled. Keep pulling 2-3 threads at a time until the frayed part is as long as you want it!

I made mine about 1/2″, if I went much longer than that it might start to tangle if I put it in the washing machine.

I like to style mine by folding it in half to form a giant triangle, then tying the two small ends behind my neck!
