Over the last couple of days, I had fun trying out gracekelly's double Gavroche trick, and playing with various combinations. My favorite so far, is a black/blue and cassis/orange Ex-Libris, tied in a Twist knot.
To honor a few requests for a detailed how-to, here a photo step-by-step. Fold each Gavroche in the basic bias fold, and then tie them together at one end with a Petite scarf ring, or a small double knot.
Place the resulting long stripe on your neck, with the ends hanging down your front. From there, you can try a variety of knots, with or without scarf rings.
For a necklace type of look, proceed with the Twist knot.
Cross both ends, bring them back behind your neck, and then feed them simply through the scarf ring to secure (or make another small double knot)
Today it's cold and grey outside, and it has not stopped raining all day. We are having friends over for a casual Sunday lunch, and will spend the rest of the afternoon by the cosy fire. Wearing my Gavroche Twist knot and a soft and big cardie. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend everyone!
