Keep scrolling to get the very best and super simple step by step on the bow tie knot!

Step 1- The Hang 

To get this step just right you must hang the bow tie around your neck so that one side of the bow tie is hanging lower than the other. I would suggest about an inch lower than the other.

Step 2- The Cross Over 

The second step is pretty self explanatory, all you have to do is take side that is hanging lower and then cross it over the other side of the tie.

Step 3- The Loop

For the third step after you've crossed the longer end over the shorter one, you must then bring the longer end up and through the loop toward your collar.

Step 4- The Double Over

Step four is also simple, just take the short side and double it over itself to form the front base loop of the bow tie.

Step 5- The Pull Over

Next you must take the long end which is up toward your collar and pull it over and down so it is in the center of the doubled over side of the tie.

Step 6- The Second Double Over 

Now you are going to take the long side which you just pulled down and centered and double over that side as well to form another bow shape.

Step 7- The Pull Through

Taking the bow shape you just made, pull that side through the loop behind the bow tie. This will form your center knot.
