Neckerchiefs must first be folded. Place the neckerchief on a table or flat surface with the emblem pointing away from you. Grab the two outermost corners, and fold the neckerchief in half, creating a triangle. Then fold the long edge over about 1 inch. Do not twirl or roll the neckerchief.
Fold the neckerchief into a band until 6 inches of the tip remain. The emblem should be visible. Be sure to fold tightly to prevent gathering around the neck. Once done, you should have a band shape with a triangular tip with the emblem in the center.
Place the band under or over your shirt collar with the emblem on your back. Pull both ends to the center of your shirt, and use neckerchief slides to secure them in place. The fit should be snug, but not too tight. Alternatively, the troop may vote that the ends can be secured with a slipknot or left hanging loose around the boy scout's collar.
