Step 1. Start with one side of the tie longer than the other.
Step 2. Cross the longer side over the shorter side and tuck the longer end up and over.
Step 3. Fold the shorter end in half (so it looks like a bow) and hold it against your neck.
Step 4. Pull the longer side over the half-folded side.
Step 5. Take the top of the longer-hanging end and push it through the loop formed behind the bow.
Step 6. Push until the the parts of the bow are aligned.
Step 7. Pull on both sides of the bow to tighten, and adjust until the shape is just right.
