Fold the top corner of the stole to the center, creating a triangle. Tie the bottom corner into a knot.
Place the stole atop your head so the triangle faces outward in the back.
Wrap the stole around your head and pin in the back where the two sides overlap.
Tie a small knot at the point of the triangle, atop the head.
Lift the first *1 knot over your top knot, and tuck the end in.
Pull the two ends so the *1 knot is secured.
Tie the two ends behind the head.
Bring both ends to one side to complete the look.
Turn the headband inside-out and tie a knot on one end. Flip the headband back and place on your head, securing the bun from above with a hair tie. *If you are not using a headband, begin with STEP 2.
Fold the stole in half, creating a triangle. Place the stole over your head with the fold in the front, making sure one end is longer than the other.
Wrap the short end (A) behind your head, then wrap the long end (B) over it from the other side. Pin in place where the two overlap. (Tuck the short end away.)
Move B to the other side, then take the *1 and *2 ends in each hand.
With one end in each hand, twist both ends upward.
Wrap the two ends around the bun and tie in the front.
Wrap both ends tightly around the bun and tie firmly in the back, holding the bun in place.
Adjust the balance of the bun, and you're done.
