Notes

For the basis of the cravat I custom-scaled down piece 17 of the Burda #3403 pattern. I also revised the fold pleat lines to accommodate a tidier finish for such a smaller version of a men’s cravat. The Cravat-Ascot Pattern that I provide is the result of this custom scaling. If you use this pattern as it is, it will create a cravat measuring approximately 19″ (48.2cm) in full length and tie neatly around a 7″ (17.8cm) neck.

For the cravat shown in my photos, Floppy Bunny wanted a longer length for his cravat, so I extended the pattern’s length by an extra 2″ (5cm) at the centre seam: this makes a cravat measuring 23.5″ (60cm) in full length, to tie around a 7″ (17.8cm) neck.

You can also make a few modifications to the pattern that I provide:

  • to extend the length, just extend the paper pattern at the centre seam
  • to shorten the length, just reduce the paper pattern at the centre seam

In either of these cases, you may also wish to adjust the lengths of the fold pleat lines accordingly, for the neck.

Recommended Materials

As recommended by Burda #3403 pattern: Silk, brocade, lightweight wools, moire.

I bought a piece of Liberty of London’s Tana Lawn fabric called ‘Gigi Garland Blues’ via eBay, measuring one large fat quarter 18″ x 26.5″ (45.5cm x 67cm).

Amount of Fabrics

For Floppy Bunny’s cravat I cut a piece measuring 18″ x 12″ (45.5cm x 31cm).
