How to Tie a Scarf #4

1. Place a patterned oblong scarf around your neck, it's best to use one on the narrower side. Keeping one side long enough to tuck under your cardigan, tie a square knot (not too tightly) and push the longer side up through the neck and spread it evenly over the knot.
2. With your right hand, pick up the panel an inch or two in from the edge of the scarf and wrap it around the first button. It's best to work from the top down and the wear a medium-weight cardigan, (a light wool is best) with slightly large button holes.
3. Carefully send the button-scarf combo through the button hole. Repeat. If you have a scarf tail at the end, try to tuck it into your half slip, if you're wearing one.
4. Adjust the scarf so that the knot is covered up and the scarf isn't too tight around your neck. Done.

I got this idea from one of my vintage book of various scarf knots. I've never seen anyone else wear a scarf like this, so if you do try this out please send me the link!
