That looks good, but I can't exactly see how it's done. Do you have instructions, Linda?

A graceful tie, looks wonderful over a sweater. Problem is when you put a jacket over this tie, it mashes up. An aviator tie (AKA hacking knot) lives more easily under a coat.

start by holding the scarf at the front of the neck, wind it round the back of the neck then let the ends hang forward

That scarf is very beautiful. I love the colour too.

I'm into neck pieces this winter - much less fabric and very warm. I have collected them over the years and sometimes cut them off the necks of sweaters.

GP - I'm so glad you said "sweaters"...got a bit worried there for a minute!

Beautiful scarves: just another reason I've always envied you girls lucky enough to have necks.

Scarves are utterly necessary to achieve cycling chic. As in the Parisienne in these Sartorialist pics: http://tinyurl.com/5cw3ym I'm certain that the Milanese gentleman wears a fine woollen scarf when there is a chill in the air.

Odd, I don't have a long neck, and I love scarves. It is a matter of how you wind them - note the twist in the example shown.
