A bandanna is a strip of cloth worn around the head, neck or wrist and was designed to absorb sweat. Today they are more of a fashion accessory, but are still used in the traditional manner by ranchers and are a common part of costumes. A cowgirl's bandanna is not tied any differently to a cowboy's version, but the fabric tends to be more feminine and worn exclusively around the neck.

Instructions

    Scarf Slide

  1. 1

    Unfold the bandanna out full and fold in half to make a triangle.

  2. 2

    Place the folded bandanna across your shoulders so the main point of the triangle is on your back and the two other points hang in front over the shoulders.

  3. 3

    Insert the two points into the scarf slide through the loop ensuring the decorative side is facing out.

  4. 4

    Adjust the scarf slide so it is comfortably around the neck.

    Bandanna Knot

  1. 1

    Lay the bandanna out and fold it into a triangle.

  2. 2

    Arrange the bandanna around your neck so the main point is in front pointing down and the other two points are over the shoulders facing backwards.

  3. 3

    Cross the two points over each other behind the neck and bring back in front over the main point.

  4. 4

    Tie a square knot using the two crossed-over points in front of the main point and adjust so the bandanna is securely around the neck.
