The “Parisian” or French or European Knot

Also called “slip” or just “simple” style.  This is fast and easy to tie and creates a large, warm knot right at the collar of a coat or jacket, making it a good wind-stopper.  It requires a longer scarf unless you’re using a thinner fabric such as silk.  Bulky scarves do not work well as the end knot can appear too large.
How to tie it:  Fold the scarf in half at the middle so that the ends touch and hold the doubled-over bend in one hand while passing the loose ends around the back of your neck with the other.  Tuck the ends through the bend and pull snug.  Adjust as needed.
