Here's another (extra crazy) scarf tie, which I'm calling a "Jumbled Knot". As seen in action here.
1- Final look.
2- Start with a long rectangle scarf. It doesn't have to be quite as big as the one I've got here, but the bigger the scarf the more dramatic the end result.
3- Hold up one corner and let the scarf drape down. This nets you some extra length, as well as pointed ends versus flat ends if the scarf is just folded.
4- Loosely grab the scarf across the middle and hold horizontally.
5- Now we're just going to do a simple loop. So start by lengthening one side...
6- ...And loop the other around the neck. You can either adjust the ends to be the same length, or leave uneven for a different effect. Changing the size of the looped part will also change the final effect.
7- Take one dangled end and loosely pull about half of it through the scarf going underneath the loop;...
8- ...; the other half should be visible beneath the loop. Take the other dangled end and to the same...
9- ...Taking about half...
10- ...But this time loosely pull it through the scarf going over the loop; again, the other half should be visible beneath the loop.
11- You'll likely need to fiddle and adjust all the different loop points just how you want them. In step 10, that's without any adjusting; in step 11 I've pulled the top halves of the ends flat so they fill more space, as well as twisted the tucked ends to show more of the fringe.
I do realize that plaid-on-plaid was perhaps not the best choice (that's just what I was wearing this morning), so hopefully it's not too difficult to understand.
