Cowboy knot

When done with a 90 Carré I think of this knot as 'cowboy drape', rather than 'knot', as it seems so much more to do with arranging the folds than knotting.

Fold your scarf into a triangle

then fold the long edge over, about 5 inches wide

gather the ends together

and bring behind your neck

cross the ends..

pull tighter..

.. and bring them forward

From here, you can proceed in a variety of ways. You can simply tie the ends into a double knot, or use a scarf ring (moyenne size) to secure them. To see the criss-cross method, please click on the video link below.

Scarf ring used: MaiTai Collection moyenne size, light honey colour
Scarf: Hermes Cuirs de désert

  1. Hello, is the 5" folded layer facing out or facing in (next to the body)? No wonder my cowboy knot is always messy looking! I'm missing this step! Thank you so much! :-) Emily
