from the point on your shoulder it comes to in the picture, over top
of your head and then to ths same point on the opposite shoulder.
This will give you the length of the hypotenuse (long side of the
triangle). you can then figure out the size of the other sides by
trigonometry or by laying your tape measure down and using two
yardsticks from the endpoints of the hypotenuse to make a right angle.
AS far as using a rectangular scarf to cover the back of the head,
you'd be better off using a pice of lightweight muslin to test with,
I'd start with 16 inches by 45 and see if that works, possibly
trimming it down to 8 inches by 45 if 12 iinches seems too bulky.
