The Fancy Braid

THE FANCY BRAID
Start with the scarf around your neck with the ends hanging in front, then cross and tie the ends like you would if you were starting to tie your shoe. This tie will decide the length you want your finished scarf to hang. Holding one scarf end in one hand and one in the other, bring the right over the left. Grab that now left side and draw it up under and over the top. You can pull this as tight or loose as you like. Repeat until you get to the end and finish the braid with a knot.

The Twist

THE TWIST
Center the scarf at the back of your neck and start twisting the ends until almost the entire length of the scarf is twisted. It will start to curl around itself. If the scarf is long, you can loop it around your neck a second time. Tie a knot to keep it in place.

The Bandit

THE BANDIT
Fold a rectangle scarf in half lengthwise to make it resemble a square. Fold one corner to the middle of the opposite side so that it forms a triangle. Put two ends of the triangle over the back of your neck, leaving a point hanging down in the middle of your body. Tie the scarf in the back and adjust accordingly.

The Half-Bow

THE HALF BOW
Start with the scarf behind your neck with one end longer than the other. Cross the longer end over the shorter one. Pull the longer end up through the bottom, creating a loop. As you pull, keep the end taunt so it tightens securely around your neck. Spread and adjust the bow.
