Hey guys, we call them "Woggles". Its a funny word, but a LOT easier
to say than Neckerchief slide!
Here's one I have done with great success...
Take a piece of dowel or round wood and grind off four sides at an
angle. Cut it off leaving the peak and a bit of the round wood.
Get some thin wood or ply and cut out disks with a hole saw. I cut
about 5 at a time, making it quicker.
Cut some short pieces of plastic pipe the right size for the Scarf
(Neckerchief) to fit through.
Sandpaper the disk, and glue the peak in the dead centre (covering the
hole left by the hole saw. You now have a minature "Scout hat"!
Glue the hat to the side of the pipe, paint, decorate or whatever and
it looks great.
I have had a go at a typed diagram, but its a bit hard to get the full
