Steps on how to tie the Self Tie Bow Tie  

  1. Hang the bow tie flat around your neck with the right side about 2 inches longer or equal to the left.

  2. Cross the one end over the shorter end(Right or left depending on your dominant hand), and bring the side you choose up behind and through the other side, tying a loose knot.

  3. Fold the dominant hand side into a bow tie shape by pulling and folding it over itself, then pinching it to your neck. The center of the bow shape should be between your collar points and in the center of your neck.

  4. Pull the side that’s hanging down over and in front of the side you just made the Bow with.

  5. Now, fold the longer end into the shape of a bow.

  6. Push the long end through the loop which is behind the shorter end. Located in the back where you Just hanged over and in front of you.

  7. Pull both ends to tighten the knot.

  8. Adjust your tie and admire your work!
