The thick end should hang down to approximately your bellybutton.

Step 2: Cross the Narrow End to Your Left, Over Wide End, Forming a Triangle Shape Where the Sides Meet.

Step 3: Fold the Narrow End Behind the Loop (the Loop Formed by Crossing the Two Sides) and Raise It Up Through the Loop.

Step 4: ​Drop the Narrow End Straight Down Over the Loop, So It Hangs Down Directly in Front of the Wide End.

Step 5: Take Narrow End to the Left, Wrap Behind the Loop, Pull Over to the Right.

Step 6: Lift the Narrow End Up and Drop It Through the Loop From the Front.
