How to tie a Bandana

How to tie a bandana

There are many methods of tying a bandana, some are below.  If you have any suggestions of wearing or bandana tying methods, please let us know. 

Bandana tying method 1:

Standard Method.

Fold the bandana in half to create a triangle.

Place the centre of the longest side on your forehead and bring the ends together at the back of the neck and tie loosely.

Next, gently push the excess material hanging over the knot to underneath the knot so that the knot is holding the excess material in place.

Tighten the knot so the scarf stays securely in place.

Tying a bandana, method 2:

Headband / Sweatband, points out.

Fold the bandana in half to create a triangle. Roll or fold from the longest side towards the shortest side. Place the rolled scarf on your forehead and tie securely at the back or front.

This method can also be used for Alice hairbands, wristbands or neckerchief / neck scarf

Measures approx 22inches x 22inches square. 

Can be tied in a number of ways to create a versatile accessory.

"washerwoman" style - folded into triangle, ends tied just above fringe / hairline

"bandanna" style - folded into triangle, ends tied at base of neck

"headscarf" style - folded into triangle, ends tied under the chin

"hairband" style - folded into triangle, then rolled points first into a long, slim shape.  Tie ends at base of neck

"sweatband" style - same as above but tie ends at back of the head

"zandana / doo rag" style - as "bandanna" style but instead of tying the ends, gather together and secure with a rubber band.

Belt / jeans accessory - as "hairband" style but pull through belt loops of jeans and tie to make a funky belt or just pull through 1 belt loop and knot or tie and leave ends hanging.

"wristband" - as above but tie around the wrist and leave ends to hang.

"cowboy/cowgirl neckerchief" - as above but tied around the neck, fastening at the side in a knot.

You can also dress up your dog with these versatile squares!

Great for post chemotherapy or for hairloss sufferers. Prevents motorcycle helmets from rubbing and good for medical and food preparation staff too.

This timeless classic headwear has so many uses besides being a fashion accessory. 

Use two stitched around the edges to make throw pillow covers.

Use them as napkins.

Roll or twist on the diagonal to make curtain tie-backs.

Knot at the corners and secure with an elastic band for a small pouch, like a bindle.

Make a bag, complete with handle.  See instructions here http://www.thats-charming.co.uk/bandanabag-g-29.html

Or just use it as a handkerchief!

If all that fuss seems like too much hard work, why not go for a pre-fitted zandana instead?
