Foulard de la semaine

Shown here are a couple of simple knots.  Start with one of the basic folds for square scarves from last week’s video.

I like a granny knot for a more casual, unstudied look.  A square knot is fine if you prefer, but will look more “done.” 

The second look is great for wearing with a jacket or suit, but also works with a tee shirt and jeans when you don’t want the ends flapping around or dragging in your soup.

Here’s a pic of the scarf used:

    Tres jolie. I also love Les Nubiens and that song is one of my favorites.
    How big a square are you using?

    I love that you are doing this. Because of these videos I will actually have more than one way to wear a scarf.

    Thank you, thank you. I was admiring a librarian the other day who had tied her scarf in that square knot. I wondered how she had done it, but didn’t have opportunity to ask. Now, I know!

    I had never been able to wear scarves until you showed me a certain little style.
    Thank you so very much!

    My chere Pseu,

    You look so pretty in your videos. You also have gorgeous hands (nice ring btw).

    Oh yes, the lessons are invaluable.

    I always seem to tie my scarves the same way, so thanks for the inspiration! Btw, maybe it’s my computer, but the oct 29 video doesn’t seem to play…

  14. November 6, 2010 / 7:26 pm

    I love that particular scarf! Could someone please tell me the name of it so I can look for it from a reseller? Thanks.

  15. November 6, 2010 / 7:29 pm

    Never mind, I just saw the name at the end of the video.

  16. November 6, 2010 / 10:26 pm

    I love mices to pieces!

    Dear Pseu, Just wondering how you learned to tie your scarves with such ease? Do you have a large collection? I seem to favor the longer rectangular shape at the moment. What is your favorite scarf and tie? Merci!

  21. November 7, 2010 / 2:27 pm

    Keep the videos rolling. Loved the music and the entire production!

    Marguerite – thanks! I have several scarves of different sizes and shapes. Really, I just kept playing and experimenting, and trying to copy things I liked. It’s really just a matter of practice.
