Knitted winter scarves can take up a tremendous amount of space, especially in the top of a coat closet. People end up having to dig to find just the right one, and the yarn invariably ends up becoming snagged on other items, especially those with Velcro closures. Use these clever space-saving ways to store knitted winter scarves, and do not hesitate to knit or purchase more. You can neatly organize dozens of colors and styles, and you can do it without taking up valuable room.
Hang a Vertical Row of Tension Rods across the Width of a Closet
The interior sides of standard double-door closets are often wasted. Either they are empty because they are not easy to access, or they are filled with stacks of seldom used items. Clean out your closets and make way for knitted winter scarves. Hang a vertical row of tension rods across the width of the closet next to the wall, and use the rods to neatly store them. It is a clever and space-saving way to keep track of each one. Three or four rods will hold dozens of narrow wraps.
Use a Shoe Organizer with Clear Pockets
If you do not have extra closet space, use a shoe organizer with clear pockets to hold knitted winter scarves. It does not have to be placed on display. Hang it on the inside of a closet door, and neatly roll each scarf before tucking them into the pockets. Since the pouches are clear, it will be easy to find the perfect selection without having to dig.
Hang Hooks on a Leather Belt with Riveted Holes
A leather belt is good for more than just keeping pants up, especially if it has riveted holes. When looking for clever space-saving ways to store knitted winter scarves, consider using a leather belt to hold round hooks that are large enough to accommodate each scarf. Begin by hanging the belt on a sturdy wall hook. Thread the hooks through the riveted holes, and thread the scarves through the hooks. You will be able to store several knitted winter scarves on a single belt, and they will take up very little space. A belt with double riveted holes will hold twice as many in a neat and orderly way.
Connect Plastic Shower Curtain Hooks on a Hanger
Plastic shower curtain hooks are the ideal size for holding lightweight knitted winter scarves. You can easily make a scarf holder using a plastic hanger, matching plastic shower hooks and coordinating ribbon. Tie six to nine hooks together using color-coordinating ribbon. They should be lined up side-by-side. Finish by tying the group of hooks along the bottom of a plastic hanger. Place the hanger on a closet rod or on a wall hook, and add your knitted lightweight accessories. No matter which space-saving option you choose, you will be able to store dozens of gorgeous wraps.
