Hacking knot - how to



Fold your scarf/GM in the basic bias, then place around your neck as shown. Put one hand through the loop you have created and pull one scarf end through.

Please click images to enlarge

Open up the loop and put your hand through (from underneath). Then take the other scarf end and pull it through.

Tighten and voilà!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Beautiful as always. The gm adds that je ne sais quoi to the little black suit. Not too much but just enough. Have yourself a wonderful weekend!

  11. Hey, what a nice look. And such a great idea to stay warm and yet elegant. Never thought about to have the GM with the LBS that way, esp. this knot. Thank you so much for the inspiration. Have to try it myself immediately.
