Since writing this blog post, I have also made a video tutorial showing how to tie a bandana land girl style.
Someone mentioned that they'd love to be able to wear a scarf in this style, so I said I would do a tutorial for them when I got home. Fast forward to the evening and here I am, doing a quick tutorial.
I would describe the style as Land Girl inspired, vintage-esque and also Rockabilly I guess.
Today I wore it this way as I have curlers in, but I also wear it in the more standard way too. I love my bandanas!
So here is my attempt at a tutorial.
Start with your bandana folded about three-quarters of the way in half. I have bandanas in basically every colour, and they stretch a bit - you can see this one doesn't fold in half perfectly anymore, but I hope you can see what I mean, it isn't folded in half, but about 3/4s of the way.
The folded side of the bandana is going to go along your neck, so the pointy bit comes over your forehead.
You can see I still have my curlers in! They are preparation for a meeting tomorrow!
Bring both of the ends together, making sure that middle point is underneath.
Tie the two ends together in a knot, making sure that third point is still pointing out over your forehead.
Now, get that middle point, fold it over the knot you just tied, and then re-tie a knot, holding the pointy bit down (and back).
You may well have two gaps, you can neaten these up by tucking the bandana down, so you end up with a smooth surface.
