Leçon, comment plier un foulard

This is a great tie for oblong scarves when you want something a little different that will stay put, without a lot of bulk around the neck. Start by folding the scarf in half lengthwise, drape around the neck as shown above.

Pass one of the ends through the loop like so.

Twist the loop a half turn, then pass the second end through, in the opposite over/under order as the first end.

If that’s too confusing or difficult to do in a mirror, you can always lay the scarf out on a flat surface and do the over/under – under/over weave with the ends. Then just pick up and slip over your head…
Adjust the ends and loop to the length you like, and voilà! Practice a few times, and before you know it, you’ll be able to do this one without looking while running to catch a bus.

    I like it! You’re a genius. Thanks!

    Nice demo! These “fuller” ties are very useful in cold climates like mine, the ‘puffiness’ traps air and creates better insulation.

    Great tip. We have a bit of chill in the air today here in Central Florida, so I plan on wearing a scarf with this charming tie.

    I like this fold for spreading out the scarf’s bulk around the neck against the cold, as Duchesse suggests.

    That look is so much more interesting than anything I do with scarves! Thanks for posting it. 🙂

    Great post. I only wish I didn’t cry when I braided my hair. Thinking about twists and things for some reason hurts my brain…

    Very nice–thanks for the careful pictures and explanation! I wear lots of scarves but am bored with the manner in which I tie them!

    You’d need an engineering degree to figure that out! Thank you for the help!

    I did this loop in D.C. on Tuesday and got a compliment on it. It’s a nice little variation on the hacking knot. Your directions are absolutely clear.

    Is this the one for me, Cherie? I think it is. I also think I’ll do it on a flat surface.

    Merci mille fois. I’ll get back to you with details.

    Pseu, you are rubbing off on me and I have been buying silk scarfs. Perhaps at some point you could address some of the following:

    1.) Are you suppose to iron out the folds? – or –
    2.) Do you keep the folds and store them folded?
    3.) Once you’ve worn a scarf, do you iron out the wrinkles (but not the folds?)
    4.) What is your opinion of keeping the tags vs. cutting them out?
    5.) How do you store your silk scarfs?
    6.) Do you wash or dry clean them?
