Keeping warm in your hijab

Some places the winter is very cruel and chilly. One french sister kept this in mind when she sent me this hijab tip:

Put a knitted scarf over a simple hijab to keep warm on those cooler days. Would you or would you not try this?

  1. That’s exactly what I used to do when I lived in Alaska! I stole the middle eastern hijab idea and used it during the bitterly cold winters because I did not own a car and I had to walk to and from university – sometimes in temps as low as -40F !!! It’s a great idea for regular hijab!

    I would definetely go for this in the cold winter!
    I used to wear a crocheted white scarf over my hijabs last winter, so you could see the color of the hijab beneath through the little holes.

    Nice idea, but I live in a very very very very hot country so I would never need it unless I moved.

    Yes, that’s a great idea, using a scarf with holes in it would be really pretty. Did anyone else notice the green hijab on the left? It looks very odd, maybe I’m just not familiar with the style.

    Yes for sure! Looks much better than a wool hat! I don’t wear actual hijab, but I look like that in winter, that’s how I cover my head to keep warm in winter, hehe.

    I would (and will Insha’Allah) definitely try this style in winter. Thanx for the inspiration Basbousa!

    I’d do this when it snows.

    That is a great idea, this inspired me to learn how to knit! i’m going to make my own. Thanks for posting it!
