Collier knot

The Collier knot is perfect for hot summer days and warm and humid climates, as the scarf barely touches the skin, and the neck is left free of fabric.


Fold your scarf in the basic bias fold, then proceed as follows:

Place the scarf ring on the shoulder strap of your dress or top, and feed one scarf end
through the ring, coming from below

pull the scarf about 15 to 20 cm through

bring the end under the shoulder strap

and take it back through the scarf ring, this time coming from above

pull the end upwards to tighten the knot. You can keep one finger on the scarf ring, to hold it in place until the knot is tight

tighten further

Make a single knot into the center of the scarf, and proceed the same way as above with the other shoulder strap

Scarf rings give this a neat and finished look, but you can also secure the scarf to the top with a small double knot.

On cooler days, one can wear the scarf closer to the neck, and tie both ends into a small double knot behind the neck. For more variations, one can make the basic bias fold narrower or wider, or pull the knot in the middle tighter or looser. Or, try shorter or longer ends, depending on the neckline of your top/dress.

A looser middle knot takes up more fabric, resulting in shorter ends

Fold your scarf into the basic bias, and tie three knots in equal distance,

then attach the scarf to your top

Alternatively, leave the three middle knots looser, which takes up more fabric and results in a higher neckline
