1. Fold the scarf in half so that it's in the shape of a triangle. If the scarf is on the larger side, you can fold it one more time so that you have a smaller triangle.

2. Hold the ends in each hand, and tie a knot at the back of the neck.

The Side Knot

1. Roll or fold the scarf until it's in the shape of a long rectangle.

2. Place the scarf behind the neck with both ends hanging down at the front.

3. Tie the ends into a low knot at the center.

4. Spin the scarf so that it's off-center at one side, and the loose ends are hanging down.

The Triple Knot

1. Roll or fold the scarf until it's in the shape of a long rectangle.

2. Tie a knot at the center, and then one on each side. Make sure all three are an equal distance apart.

3. Secure with a knot at the back of the neck.

Weave
