The elegant overlap look pictured above (from The Style Particle) is what got me thinking about increasing my knot stock. I first spotted the knot, which has a cult following as it turns out, on a neck scarf worn by my stylish friend Teresa, and I traced it to the fashion blog The Sartorialist where, thankfully, I found an easy-to-follow video—yay for that!

Tie Me Up X 25
Most scarf-tying videos are bedroom or basement productions. This in no way diminishes their usefulness, of course, but when you do watch a high-quality how-to like the video made for the Wendy’s Lookbook fashion blog, these other productions start to feel unnecessary. Wendy’s entertaining presentation lasts fewer than five minutes but demonstrates clearly how to tie 25 different scarf knots, with the camera gearing down to slowmo when necessary to highlight technique.
Collect Hermès Knotting Cards
The surfeit of scarf-tying videos on YouTube makes something old school like printed instructions seem passé, except for these clear and explicit directions on cardstock from Hermès, the luxury label known for making some of the most desirable scarves on the planet. Hermès Knotting Cards, which cannot be purchased separately but come free when you buy a scarf, are truly informative and highly collectible. —C. Rule
