How To Tie a Bow Tie

1 Start with end in left hand extending 1-1/2” below that in right hand.
2 Cross longer end over shorter and pass up through loop.
3 Form front loop of bow by doubling up shorter end (hanging) and placing across collar points.
4 Hold this front loop with thumb and forefinger of left hand. Drop long end down over front. 
5 Place right forefinger, pointing up, on bottom half of hanging part. 
6 Pass behind front loop.
7 Poke resulting loop through knot behind front loop.
8 Even ends and tighten.
