HOW TO TIE A SCARF

There are four folds that hold the key to all scarf knots. Master these and you will be able to tie your scarf in many ways to suit your scarf or occasion.

THE BIAS FOLD

Step 1: Begin with an open scarf.
Step 2: Take the opposite corners of the scarf and fold inward toward the center of the scarf.
Step 3: Continue folding-in the opposite sides.
Step 4: Finish folding when the scarf is about two inches. Then flip the scarf so the folds become hidden.
