4. The European Loop

Use any scarf to accomplish the sleek European Loop. To tie this, fold your scarf in half and drape it over your neck. Take one end and place it over and under the loop.  Take the other end and place it under and over the loop side.

8. The Waterfall

Using the waterfall method is a fun way to showcase more of your scarf.  Try using any of the Downeast Scarves with this method. To tie it, first drape the scarf over your shoulders with one end significantly longer. Then, loop the longer end around your neck one time. Take that longer side and bring it to the top and secure it.  Adjust the scarf to lay properly and waterfall down the front of your body.  That’s it! Another stylish way to wear a scarf.

To tie the layered scarf knot, first put the middle of the against your neck and let it hang in the back. Then twist, the scarf around the neck and loosen the loop until it’s comfortable. Cross one end over another and tie a knot. Adjust the loop so it covers the tail in the front.

10. The Muffler

One of the most fashionable and simplest ways of tying your scarf is the muffler way. To tie the muffler, drape the scarf around your neck so the longest end hangs over your shoulder. Next wrap the long end loosely around your neck a few times. Then, tie the two ends together on your shoulder. Make an extra knot if the ends are still too long.
