Well, I've been told that the word I learned for scarf back in high school French class, "fichu," is a rather antiquated word, along the lines of "bumpershoot," "pocketbook," or "Davenport" in English. My high school French teacher also had a heavy Korean accent, so my pronunciations were a bit off for a while too. :-)
Anyway, this is a good style to wear with a light, sheer scarf. Fold the square once diagonally, drape in front with the triangle pointing down like a bib. Cross the ends around the back of the neck, then back to the front and tie in a square knot over the top of the "bib".
