- Second Loop
- Through The Loop
- Knot And Tighten
Start with the end in your right hand extending approximately one and half inches below that of the one in your left.
Cross the longer end over the shorter and pass up through the loop. Rest the long end over your shoulder.
To form the front loop of the bow, double up the shorter end, placing across the collar and hold in place with your forefinger.
Now drop the long end down over the front. Snap the wide ends of the bow shut and lightly pull away. This should leave a loop at the back.
Take the top of the hanging piece of tie and thread it through the loop created at the back.
Once through, even out the ends and tighten.
