How To - "2 Ring Slide" Scarf Look

OK so how to achieve the 2 ring slide look is really simple:-

1. Fold scarf in half diagonally to make a triangle.  You may wish to fold the long edge a couple times so that the edge is not so bulky - up to your personal taste.
Scarf - Carre en Carre

2. Next get your 2 scarf rings - it doesn't matter if they are the same or different shapes - slip a ring onto each end of the triangle at the top:-

3. Push the rings nearly to the middle like in the photo below:

4. Next take the ends of the scarf and cross over at the back of your neck. 

5. and bring the tails down each side.  As you do so pass the end through the scarf ring to secure.

6. Pull the ends of the tails through the rings to the length and tightness you want.

Depending on where you site your rings you can have a longer or shorter gap at the top:  
Scarf - Steeplechase     Short



I have found you can also try this look using your scarf folded in a Basic Fold - the scarf used in the photo below was new so a little stiff I think with an older scarf that is more floppy you would get a more fluid look - the ends look a bit sticky out here!

  1. Dear,
    thank you for your explanation and photos. Three nice scarves and all look truly nice. I know you like pink and warm colours, but I think that Carre en Carre, with its combination of colours produces a nice impact there are the nice colours enriching the look in a special way (e.g. see that strong turquoise colour, then beautiful blue and special yellow, they are all beauties,don't you think so?).
    Wishing you a lot of nice scarf slides, hugs,

  2. Aha, that is so clever, and I can't wait to try it myself. All three scarves are beautiful, and this tie does show off the designs in a lovely way. Thank you!

  3. Great idea and so easy, when you know how! One to try for sure....thanks for sharing!

  4. This is genius, and I will be trying it! Many thanks for the instructions.
