and fold it into a triangle (one shown
approx 1m sq.). Place it over the head
with the point of the triangle going
Tie once so that it feels
secure. Tuck the loose triangle tail up
inside the scarf at the nape of the neck,
leaving a scarf tail on either side.
Bring two tails around to the
front of the head and secure with a
knot. By tucking the excess scarf at the
back, under the knot at the back, it
gives the illusion of hair being under
the scarf. The scarf can be worn like

Take a long thin scarf (the
black one shown is approx 100cm x 20
cm) and thread it equally through the
tied section at the forehead. Weave in
and out working towards the back of the
The two loose ends can be
tucked up, under the scarf at the nape
of the neck.
