Love this!! Thank you for the "how-to" clip too <3
Thank you DD, have fun with the knot! <3
Need to try this right away ;-) - but I can already tell I will need lots of practice to make this lovely alternative look as good as you do! hugs, HM.
Thank you hair-mess, but I don't think you'll need any practice at all! It's a lovely knot for a GM too, would be great with your PdV :-)
ha, ha - if you knew, how long it took me to figure out the hacking; LOL! I'm hopeless in following steps and even more in coordinating my fingers (left, right, back and forth) in front of a mirror. <3
You are way too modest, your scarves always look beautifully tied. The weave knot is more straight forward than the hacking knot.. I put my timer on now! ;-)
Thanks MaiTai for this - I love this knot and your video makes it look achievable at last!
You are very welcome, sushi queen, and good luck with the knot! Would love to hear how it went :-)
I love this! I was looking at your pics of this knot yesterday, wondering how to achieve it and if I would dare email you to get a "how to". And tah dah! Here it is today;-PThank you so much for the video, it seems so easy to achieve now . Of course it will require a lot of practice for me to get the same result...
Yay! It worked! Your instructions are crystal clear, MaiTai, thank you again! (If I had the technical capability to add a smiley with a bunch of flowers I would!)
What a great conincidence, booksnchocolate.. good scarf vibes travelling through space and time, no doubt. Feel free to send me an email any time (you can use the one on the fur collar site), and good luck with the knot!
sushi queen, yay!! So happy to hear! Miss the emoticons here too, but adding a :woohoo: anyway!!
I have posted a pic of my effort on the SOTD thread - have been playing with my CenC all day...
Hopping over to the SOTD right now...
Congratulations sushi queen, your weave knot looks fabulous, and so beautiful with your CenC! Love your new avatar pic too, the Tigre Royal GP is absolutely drool worthy.
I'm going to try the weave knot just nowThank you very much for your blog.I found it by chance, and i've become a devoted to it.You transmit a touch of living-giving, natural and simple "aristocratic" sense..H must be proud of you...Congratulations
Dear Mai Tai, this is so lovely! I am a hacking knot addict thanks to you (which led me to adding to my GM collection), and now this. You always brighten my day with harmonious and judicious choices on your blog. Amitiés,ABG
Thank you so much for the very clear instructions..do you have any novel ideas for knotting vintage70 twills?moumou.
Welcome to my blog, cecila, and thank you for the kind compliments. Hope you'll continue to enjoy it here and good luck with the knot!
Many thanks, dear ABG, you are very sweet to say so. Glad to hear you are having fun with the hacking knot. The Weave knot would work beautifully with your GMs too, good thing to have so many to play with ;-) With the GMs, you don't even need to secure the ends with a knot, the weave will stay in place without. Have fun! x
Thank you mou mou. Will have a think re the 70 size!
Sadly that gorgeous GP does not belong to me but to SuiteSixteen (lucky girl!) - she had reposted one of my pics in her comment so that probably confused you!
sitting here with my sample/practice scarf (an addv. gift MIL got from a departement store). Of course I tried the weave knot, but the whole outfit is not quite postwortyhy yet. Will try to live up to your standards on h-it-up on the weekend ;-), hugs again, HM
sushi queen, I was so busy drooling that I did not notice it was SuiteSixteen's GP, lol!Bravo, hair-mess! But of course I knew it :D Hoping to see a pic via email over the weekend. hugs!
That is genius, MaiTai. Thanks so much for the clear instructional video. This knot is "so very French!"
Thank you for the wonderful instructions for theweave knot. I have been wanting to earn this!I love the idea that you actually don't have to tiea knot....no wrinkles!
love it! thanks for the instruction
You can count on that ;-). Just noticed, that you're playing around with blue already. Looks like "somebody" is anxious, lol! Can't wait to do the happy "robee dance" with you! <3, HM.
Thank you for the clear, easy-to-follow video MaiTai. You inspired me to pull out a mousseline scarf that I have been neglecting, to try the knot. I am so happy... it worked and I have fallen in love with the scarf all over again!
Dear MaitaiThank you for showing how to make this great knot! I can´t wait to try it!
xandrah, pamella, dogbiskit, hair-mess, SMR and Manuela ~ thank you very much for your sweet comments, so nice to hear that you love the knot, and that the instructions are easy to follow :-)xandrah, the weave is certainly 'oh-là-là' ;-)Great to see you, dear dogbiskit. Miss you!pamella, great point re the wrinkles, have not thought about it! It makes the weave ideal to wear a 140 Dip Dye.. the thought of ironing has so far put me off them, but now...woohoo!hair-mess, haha, been wearing blue all week, lol! Having you counting the days with me, makes the wait more bearable, hugs!SMR, how simply wonderful! It sometimes just takes the right knot to bring a scarf to life, and it is such a happy discovery to find the right one. Thrilled you are in love with your mousse again!Have fun, Manuela, and please let me know how it went! :-)
Dear MaiTai!I adore your How-Tos! Thank you for the weave knot - I have tried it today and am wearing my Dance of Marvari in ash rose carree knotted in the style.Your blog is a real inspiration - a freind of mine had birthday a week ago, I bought her a gavroche plus have printed out some of your notes on gavroches (fingers crossed - you do not mind). It would be great if you could give a how-to on freindship knot. It's a really difficult one.I could not make it from the written guidance and the scouts drawing I found in Internet are not of great help...Most wonderful day to you!AA
I so well know how you feel. When my favorite store got my kelly in fall 2008, they also offered to send her over. But I said No, I'm coming close to Christmas and will wait until then. Ahh, those must have been the longest six weeks. Sending hugs and wishing you a lovely weekend. HM
Dear MaiTaiI have tried to make it and I succeeded! I will think of you every time I make the weave knot! Thank you. Have a lovely weekend.
Thank you MaiTai for this great video - it makes it so much easier!! Love your Puzzle!
adesigna, Manuela and Scarf Addict ~ happy you enjoyed the video, many thanks for your kind comments! xadesigna, I can imagine how beautiful the weave knot must have looked with your Marvari! Feeling honored that you have added my notes to your friend's birthday gift, please say happy Birthday from me too :-) Will put the friendship knot on my 'to do' list, it looks complicated on drawings, but is not very difficult at all.hairmess, I would have done the same thing with the Kelly, so much more fun to make an occasion out of the arrival of a new bag. Hugs!Dear Manuela, so happy to hear!! And most flattered as well <3Scarf Addict, love the Puzzle design too. I bought this CW with a brique Birkin in mind, but since it did not work out, I have not worn the scarf that much. Soon I will though, as it has rather a lot of BLUE in it, yay!! ;-)
This is a great way to wear a 90 cm without showing the bulk of a double wrap at the neck...thanks!John in DFW, Texas
Hi John! Have not thought about it before, but of course you are right.. happy you like it, and nice to see you :-)
Just learned it from your video. This is a great alternative to the Ascot knot. Thanks for showing us!
You are very welcome, dear gtwdell, great to see you here! x
Thanks very a lot!! It is quite helpful ~
You are very welcome :-)
Very useful post! The video is really helpful and sure it will help many to get a clear and professional way to weave a knot in a scarf. Thanks for sharing this useful post! Keep posting!!
hi.ur techniques r awesome.i am from India can u plz tell me hw i cud order d rings n scarfs from u.
Glad you enjoy the tutorials, many thanks. The scarf rings are from my collection MaiTai Collection scarf rings, and the scarves are bought from Hermès. Best, MT
Love, love, love this blog :). I've just found it and keep referring to your how to's!
A warm welcome to you, dear Elisa! Hope you'll continue to enjoy it here :-)
I have only just discovered this blog, as a consequence of chancing upon your you-tube tutorial for the waterfall knot, which I still can't do properly (!)But I love the snowball knot and also this weave knot. With the weave, I also vary it by tying a small tight knot at the very ends and carefully ease the fabric out and down away from the neck, so that it forms a sort of cowl neck collar, which is extremely flattering. The tiny knot can then be concealed in one of the folds. Finding this blog has been very expensive as it inspired me to splash out on my very first Hermes scarf last week. I purchased the new season's Flamingo Party in the pale pink/coral colourway. I am, though,practising the knots on older scarves.... Thank you again for this lovely blog and for so generously sharing your gorgeous styling ideas.
A warm welcome to my blog, dear Pippa! Many congratulations on your first Hermès scarf, you chose a beautiful design. Wishing you much fun knotting and experimenting with it, and I'm sure you'll be an expert with the waterfall knot soon! PS. Love the sound of the weave knot variation :-)
