Accordion style


1. Fold

Begin by folding your large silk scarf with the accordion fold. You can fold it in the air, like me, but it might be easier to fold on a flat surface.

2. Secure ends

Then secure each end with a scrunchie (which you will remove at the end).

3. Wrap and pull

Place the scarf around your neck, even on both sides, cross the ends and pull one end through the loop.
