How to Draw a Scarf

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1 – Draw the top of the scarf

In this case, the scarf will be wrapped as if it were being worn.

Start by outlining its upper part. Draw the top with a smooth curved line, followed by two small protrusions (folds) on each side.

Step 2 – Draw the overlap

From the top go down draw the parts where the scarf starts to overlap on its own as shown in the example.

Step 3 – Draw one end of the scarf

Get out of the overlap and let the top of the scarf hang down. Draw it narrower towards the top (since it will be slightly squeezed there) and wider as it goes down.

Step 4 – Draw the second end of the scarf

Appear form below the first end of the scarf, add the second part.

Step 5 – Add a fringe at one end

Add a tassel (small cords that scarves usually have) to the first end of the scarf. To easily space them evenly, draw one in the center first, then two on the sides, and finally two in the middle.

Step 6 – Add a fringe at the other end

Adding a fringe to the second end is a bit more complicated because it overlaps with the first, but you can use the examples provided for reference.

Step 7 – Draw the folds and complete the line drawing

With the main sections of the scarf outlined, give it a few smaller folds like in the example. After adding those, you can trace your drawing with a black pen or marker. If you don’t have around, just darken your lines with a pencil.

Step 8 – Color the scarf

You can make the scarf any color you like or even give it some pattern. In this case, it will just be a solid red.

You can also lightly shade the inside of the top of the scarf (the part that will wrap around your neck if worn). Make the area darker at the bottom and lighter as it goes up.

Pretty much any color method can work (paints, crayons, markers) but an easy way to create a gradient for a shadow is to use a pencil.
