Playing the violin without a chinrest: one solution

I was surprised to see the concertmaster in this Vivaldi Lute Concerto video has a white scarf tied around his neck and through the top of the tailpiece of his violin. I don't think I would ever try this myself, but it is an interesting solution to keeping the fiddle in place without a chinrest.

Hi! I've been studying the violin for 5 years now. These days, I am looking for new ways to play without a chinrest. Maybe I'll give the scarf a try ;-) Thanks for the info (and for the lute concert).
