I’d never tried doing The Naomi Knot with a shimmery scarf before! This just sparkled like nothing else!! And whenever I do this wrap I can’t get over how intricate it looks… the tie is SO easy!
I heard that a few of your tried the Naomi knot and didn’t have perfect results; watch the tutorial and make sure that one side is MUCH longer than the other (the shorter ends can be as short as possible) and tie your knots loosely so they go over your head! In this one pictured I actually had tons of scarf left over! Let me know how it goes for you!
Hugs and love!

Can this Naomi knit be done on Shabbas?
If anyone doesn’t do knots in tichels on Shabbat then this one is a BIG no-no. However I do not poskim on this site and I have heard that some Ravs have said that braiding tichels is fine… but I personally do not do it. Many say that you can do double knots if it is helping you keep the mitzvah (ie keeping it secure) but this wrap does not fall into that category. Definitely ask your LOR and do this one before Shabbat comes in!
I like to do blue on Thursdays, so I am DEFINITELY doing this tomorrow! I’m going to lay out my scarves now!
Many people tie temporary knots on Shabbat. This is a good overview, but you probably need to ask within your community. https://www.dailyhalacha.com/Display.asp?ClipDate=6/4/2007. I often find that Sephardi poskim explain both Sephardi and Ashkenazi customs, so as a novice this site and other Sephardi sites have been helpful to me. Here is another (Ashkenazi) source: http://www.jewishpathways.com/files/Koshair_Knot_What_You_Think.pdf
