Method 1 Creating a Bias Fold
Fold two opposite corners toward the center of the scarf.
 The first corner should be folded a few inches past the center of the scarf. The opposite corner should be folded over the first fold that you made, so that the only corner showing is the second fold that you made.
- The opposite corner of the scarf should touch the center of the new flat edge created by your first fold.
Fold each long edge to the center.
Your scarf should look like a long strand with pointed edges. There will be a slight gap in the middle where your folds have met.
- These folds may seem like they will not hold, but don’t worry. They will actually create volume later on.
Fold one long edge to center again.
Then fold the other edge over it so that it is completely covered.
- This last fold will serve to protect the earlier folds. Hold it tight in the center, then pick up the scarf so that it hangs in a U-shape with the fold on the inside.
Knot your scarf, or drape it over your shoulders.
The bias fold is the basic starting point for most knots.
- It is not necessary to fold your scarf this way-- you can fold it lengthwise. If you are looking for the elegant pointed ends that are often seen in magazines, however, this fold is the way to go.
Method 2 Wearing Your Scarf Around Your Neck
Tie a basic knot around your neck.
Fold your scarf using the bias fold method. Then, wrap it around your neck once and tie it into a big, loose knot. The tails of the knot should be relatively short.
- If you want to add a little more pizazz to your knot, you can tie your scarf into a bow at the end. Tie it into a big bow underneath one ear.
Tie a collier knot.
Start with the bias fold. Then tie a big, loose knot in the center of the scarf. Tie two knots a few inches to either side of the big knot. These should be tighter, highlighting the larger knot. Tie the ends behind your neck in a small double knot.
- You can tuck the ends of your double knot into the knot itself, to make this look more simple and elegant.
Tie a flower knot.
 Tie opposite corners of the scarf together in a small, tight knot. Feed the remaining corners under the knot, so that their tails come under the knot on opposite sides. Pull the tails apart gently, and then flip the scarf over. The resulting knot in the front of the scarf will be the “flower”. Tie the tails behind your neck.
- Keep the “flower” underneath an ear rather than right under your chin.
Tie a basic “tie” knot.
 Start with a bias fold. Then tie a knot three to five inches from the end on one side of the fold. Pull the other end through the knot in any place you can, and adjust the tails as you see fit.
- You can place this over your neck to tie it, or tie it on a flat surface and pull your head through once it is tied.
Method 3 Experimenting With Your Scarf
Wear your scarf like Rosie the Riveter.
This is a 1940s look that is excellent for bad hair days. 
- Fold the scarf into a triangle. Put the middle point over your forehead, between your eyes, and tie the other two ends into a knot above it. Fold the point over toward the back of your head and tuck it into the knot. Secure it by tying the two ends into another knot, and tucking them into the sides of the scarf.
Braid the scarf into your hair.
If you have long hair, you can use your scarf as part of a side braid.
- Fold the scarf in half lengthwise until it is about 2” wide. Put your hair over one shoulder and place the scarf at the top of your head, like a headband. Separate your hair into three parts, with each end of the scarf being added to the right and left section of hair.
- Braid your hair, using the ends of the scarf to tie a knot at the end of your braid.
Wear your scarf as a headband.  Fold your scarf lengthwise a few times and put the center of it just above your hairline.Tie it at the nape of your neck. The knot should be under your hair.
Wear your scarf as a sarong.
Fold the scarf diagonally into a triangle and place the center of the folded edge against your left hip at waist-height. Tie the scarf at your right side.
- If desired, you can repeat with another scarf on the opposite side.
Wear your scarf as a halter top.
Tie your scarf into a knot behind your neck, with the scarf hanging over your chest. Tie the remaining ends into another knot behind the small of your back. 
- If you have an Hermes ring for your scarf, you can use it in a halter top. Put two adjacent corners through the ring, and tie those in a knot behind your neck, adjusting the ring as necessary. Knot the other two corners at the small of your back.
