How to Fold a Napkin into a Lovers' Knot

Learn how to fold a napkin into a lovers' knot with the napkin folding instructions in this Howcast video.


Now we're going to fold the lover's knot. And how adorable is this cute pattern? It has little strawberries on it. It's so sweet.

We're going to take your underside of the napkin, and then you can get your diamond shape. You're going to fold this to the point, in half. And what we're going to do is create an accordion fold down towards you.

You're going to take your tip, and you're going to bring it towards you until it's about two inches. Crease that.

Then you're going to take it back, and fold it up to meet that base line. And you're going to do the same, and bring it back. The zigzag effect, back and forth, until you reach the middle. You'll have these ruffles. And you're going to lift your napkin in the center. Let it just kind of hang toward you.

Now you're going to create your knot.

What you're going to do is, you're going to take your right corner here. Cross over, and under, and through. You give it a little tug to create that knot, until you get the angle right. And then you'll flip over, and place it in your dish.

And that's how you fold the lover's knot.
