  2. Tie a lose half simple knot.
  3. Now, take one end, let’s say the right one. Take the right end and cross it over the left, then pull it under the scarf loop and over.
  4. Now the left end becomes the right. Take this right and again, cross it over the left, then pull it under the scarf loop and over.
  5. Repeat until the ends are too short to put under the loop.
