How-to for a simple half bow knot

Start by folding your scarf in the basic bias:

Then slide your ring (here a MaiTai Collection lacquered Anneau Infinity in ivoire) up on one of the ends (any ring with an approximate diameter of 2 cm will do, as long as it is smooth and polished, so that it doesn't risk damaging your scarf). Don't slide the ring too far up, but keep it near the corners, where there is hardly any bulk of fabric.

Pinch the fabric of the other end as shown

Then feed the pinched fabric through the ring, coming from below:

You'll get this as a result. Next, pull out the first corner (where you slid the ring up) while holding onto the ring, as well as the loop you created in the previous step.

Then pull out the loop you created earlier, to make the bow:

Adjust the lengths and bow to your liking.

Create different effects by pulling the loops and length tighter or longer, or by taking the opposite corners of your carré when starting off with the basic bias fold.

works also with a 70 carré

Color variations

You can create a similar effect with a Classique scarf ring, please click here to view the how-to

Variation without using a scarf ring: Fold your scarf in the basic bias, then place around your neck. Tie a bow (in the same way you tie your show laces). Pull one of the loops out, et voilà.
