By Request - Butterfly "Knot"

Following some requests for a little how to video of the Butterfly "Knot" I have done one which I hope will help show how to achieve this very pretty look easily!

I am showing here how to do the knot using 2 gavroches (Ex-Libris en Camouflage), but it works equally well with a larger 70cm or 90cm scarf or a plisse.  You can tie a single knot first for a smaller look, but it works better without a single knot for the gavroches as they are so small anyway.
2 H gavroches, MaiTaiCollection petite horn scarf ring  and
 Hermes Bolduc scarf ring.


First I folded them in the basic fold and then fastened the two gavroches using my petite horn scarf ring from the MaiTai Collection - just pass each end through the ring to secure:-














Then put the scarves around your neck and get your scarf ring - follow the video and hopefully you will have a lovely Butterfly Knot!  Just a little word of caution - do check that the scarf ring you use is on tight as you do not want it to slip off - I used one that was too big for my 70cm once and it fell off and got damaged on the floor:-(
