Scarf Tying: Double Slide Knot

A twist on the simple slide knot! I get “that’s neat” comments every time I wear a scarf this way. So, it’s made its way onto my keeper list. Try it and tell us what you think!

Double Slide Knot

Start with your scarf around your neck with one end longer than the other.

Tie the longer end around itself to form a knot. Leave it loose so there is a loop. It works best if this first knot is just under your collar bone.

With the remaining long end, tie a second knot.

Finish by feeding the short end through the loops starting from the top.

Scarf Tying: Square Scarf Criss-Cross Knot

At the end of every scarf tying class I ask the participants if they know a tie I didn’t show and invite them to teach it to the group. At a class last December a lovely lady showed me this tie using a small silk square scarf. I tried it with a large square scarf and it works beautifully. Give it a try!

Criss-Cross Knot (Using a square scarf)

square scarf crisscross knot tutorial

Start with your scarf lying flat in a diamond . Sometimes scarves are only printed on one side. Make sure your scarf is light side up when you start.

Bring two opposite side corners together and knot them once. Depending on how slippery your fabric is, you may need to work it to tighten the knot.

The next step is the trickiest. You need to tuck the two remaining corners under the knot. The top one is now pointing to the bottom and the bottom corner is now pointing to the top.

That’s it! To wear it just tie the long ends around the back of your neck. You may want to tuck them in if you are wearing your hair up. Let the short ends hang down in the front.

What to Wear Wednesday: Triple Knot Scarf Tie

A couple weeks ago I was tying a scarf for a customer using the Knotted Waterfall Tie. She requested a way for the drape to be shorter. After a minute of me playing around the Triple Knot Scarf was born!

scarf tying the triple knot

Let me tell you- I love this tie.

– It’s warm (especially using a pashmina scarf)

– It’s an intermediate tie (meaning more intricate than a basic, but easy enough that it only takes one or two demos to teach it)

– It stays in place

Here’s how to tie it:
triple knot 1

Start with your scarf draped in the front with the ends behind your back.
triple knot 2

Cross in the back and bring the ends to the front.
triple knot 3Pick an end and tie it in a knot around itself. This is knot #1.

triple knot 4

For knot #2, spread out the non-knotted end. Bring the corner closest to Knot #1 across and tie it above. triple knot 5

Knot # 3 is the trickiest. Take the other corner under the drape and finish by tying it above knot #2. triple knot 6

I love that this works with pashminas, and both large and regular width fashion scarves.

2. As a Jacket
Tie a knot in the long ends to make a circle scarf. Put on like a jacket with the knot at the small of your back.  Adjust so the middle part of the scarf covers your shoulders. Hands free and no slipping off your shoulders. Great for dinners, formal dances, and chilly church services.

A note on scarf sizes:
The scarf shown in the photos above is 45″ wide x 60″ long. A width between 30 and 45 inches works well. Shorter widths will cover less of your leg while a 45″ scarf will work as a maxi length on most women.

A 60″ long scarf will work up for size extra small up to a size 14/16.
