One sometimes overlooked use for a scarf in cool weather is to wear it like an ascot with a piece of heavier knitwear like an Aran sweater. Edward Fox did it to keep his neck warm in a chilly castle in the 1978 television series "Edward and Mrs. Simpson." A silk scarf is best, particularly if the combination will spend any time heated spaces.
Fold the scarf in half lengthwise and place around the neck, leaving the left side about a foot longer than the right. Wrap the left around the right one and a half times and then bring the end up and over the knot from behind. Tuck into the sweater and spread the scarf to fill the neckline.
