"1." Rotate both hands clockwise. Until you have something similar. Or you can simply rotate both hands separately. First one hand "over" and the other "under" the lace.

"2." Make sure that both laces are pointing in different direction after the previous step!

"1." Grab the left lace with your index finger, by using a "hock" grip. And your right lace with your thumb "2.".

If this doesn't work your shoelaces where pointing in the opposite direction then my instructions. If so, then switch the grip between your thumb and index finger for both laces!
