How to tie square scarves?
Does anyone know how to tie those square winter scarves like the ones in Balenciaga FW 07?

Different variations would be nice, because I always seem to only do the simple one where you fold it in half and then just tie it around your neck.

Much appreciated.

=D

Tutorial from Brooks Brothers online, shows quite a few scarf knot variations.

Omg thank god there is a thread for this!!
I have thousands of square scarves and there are just a few ways I tie them:
- Take the square and fold two facing corners together until the entire scarf is just like a pointed ribbon, then tie that around your neck
- Like a tie, but then seperating the two leaves
- Tying it into one loose knot
- Tying it into two knots

I stole the first one from 'Playtime with your scarf' at www.hermes.com - That was the only one (that wasn't 'turn your five scarves into a sarong') that I could understand though, as it was just diagrams with arrows and a photo of what it should look like :I
Am looking at the Brooks Brothers link now

I remember when i was working out how to tie my scarf. This thread would have been SOOO helpful. I am sure it will be for me now as well though. All i ever seem to do is fold the corners so it is like a triangle, and tie it behind my neck. Boring really lol.
Thanks for the links

I just purchased a box set of cards on Ebay by Hermes. It has 25 cards each of them telling you a different way to tie a scarf. When I receive it, I'll post them up!

i seemed to find a great way to tie my scarf last winter, and now i've totally forgotten how to do it! i don't really like doing it the square way as everyone does that, and it looks a little trendy.

I remember seeing a picture somewhere of a girl who tied her scarf just like a bow. Anyone know how to do that?
