  8. Thank you dear DB! You are right, it's a very neat knot. You can also tie the ends at the back of your neck, then you have a 'full' Ascot. I find it works best with scarves that have rich corner detail, the knot really brings them out. xx

  10. Dear MaiTai!
    Maybe I have written you about that already but I realised that Half Ascot is the knot with which was used by pioneers in the Soviet Union (in case you have not heard about them - it was an organisation for teenagers which included all youngsterd in USSR, and the pioneers wore a red scarf). It is really funny that pioneer's knot has such a nobile name.

  12. Bonjour MaiTai! I have followed your guide how to tie Ascot Knot and it was a great success. For this knot, I used a scarf which I rarely wear (Pavois) and the result was amazing. Thank you MaiTai, you are my inspiration!
