Step 7: Folding Your Pocket Square

Okay, now we're done with the construction and the data analysis.  Time to build the pocket square!
  1. To fold the patch into the pocket square, first lay the square out flat. 
  2. Place the patch upside-down in the upper-right-hand corner of the lower left quadrant, angling it so that the patch points toward the center of the square, with the lights at the top. 
  3. Fold the pocket square in half length-wise, then fold in half again, making a square that is one-quarter of the original size. 
  4. Now rotate this square 45 degrees (so that it looks like a diamond instead of a square) and fold the pointy sides in (like a burrito).  The patch should be nestled in the upper half of the burrito. 
  5. Lastly, fold the bottom half of the burrito up to meet the top.
  6. Turn the pocket square over--now the lights should show through the handkerchief and the folded pocket square should be ready to fit into your pocket!  (Blunt side down, pointy side up, lights facing out.)
