DIRECTIONS

  • Lay your serviette out flat before you in a diamond shape.
  • Fold the South point of the diamond up to meet the North point of the diamond.
  • Turn the serviette so that the crease is vertical on the left side and the point points out to the right.
  • Bring the top point of the napkin diagonally towards you and to the right so that the crease falls an inch (2.5cm) or so short of the right-most corner and the newly formed point at the bottom is a few inches (5-6 cm) to the right of the left one.
  • Fold the right-most point towards you, the top point remains in the same place as before and the bottom comes about half way along the remaining edge. This creates two neat triangles and a diamond shape and a very simple but elegant serviette.
