Scarf Tutorial #3: Hermes Silk Scarf with Bulgari Key Chain
September 27, 2020
In this scarf tutorial #3, we are learning to create Little Butterfly knot using Hermes silk scarf with Bulgari Key Chain. It is the variant version of the “official edition” of Petit Papillon knot on Hermes knotting card. Petit papillon means little butterfly in French.
Play this audio for Petit Papillon’s pronunciation.
Making Little Butterfly knot without a scarf ring needs a little bit of practice and at least a 90cm scarf. However, with the help of a scarf ring, you can use a smaller scarf like the 70cm scarf. In any case if you do not have a scarf ring, you can use a rubber band of similar colour to your scarf, or a rubber band in metallic that can stand out beautifully like a scarf ring does. It does not necessarily have to be something expensive 🙂
In the picture demonstration, the green arrow represents one side (side A) and pink arrow represents another side (side B) of the scarf. Steps:
- Make a Base Fold.
- Make a fold using side A and pass the folded end through the scarf ring.
- Pass the entire side B through the scarf ring.
- Pass the bottom half of side B through the scarf ring.
- Adjust the knot.
