I thought that I would show you how I prefer to wear my steuchlein.
I start with putting my wulsthaube on.
Then I throw on the steuchlein
Oops a bit of.
It is nice to have that star so that I know it is on straight.
Then I tie it in the back.
I throw the tail to the front to make it easy to tie it.
If one wanted you could always use needles here in stead, to minimize bulk.
Then I adjust the steuchlein over the wulsthaube
Tighten it in the back
Hold it in place with my left hand
The other hand twist the tail part into a tight twist.
When you have twisted for a while, you can let go of the left hand and use it to twist, it goes faster with two hands.
Then I put the twisted tail over my head, holding the back in place
The twist goes around the head.
And is tucked under itself.
Tada! like this. At this point I usually throw my hat with ostrich feathers on.
And this is how I wear my steuchlein and here is also a sneak peak of my new 16th century German blouse
