This is a simple napkin fold that only takes a few seconds, but looks beautiful, and presents cutlery in a really smart, sophisticated way. This napkin fold can be done with a napkin of almost any material, although cotton and silk will be best. You may find that using a polyester or a polyester mix may need you to iron the napkin once folded to stop it unfurling, although the weight of the cutlery will make a big difference in helping hold the shape.

Step 1

Lay the napkin out so that one edge is nearest you.

Step 2

Fold the napkin in half by bringing the edge furthest from you across to the edge nearest you.

Step 3

Fold the napkin into quarters by folding the left edge across to the right edge.

Step 4

Rotate the napkin round so that the open four corners are to your top left, the centre of the napkin being at your bottom right.

Step 5

Take the topmost corner and fold it diagonally down to the bottom right corner.

Step 6

Turn the whole napkin over, so that the three open corners are to your top right.

Step 7

Take the right hand edge and fold it about a third of the way across to the left.

Step 8

Now take the left edge and fold it about a third of the way across to the right.

Step 9

Finally, turn the napkin over and then tuck your cutlery into the pocket.

That's all there is to it. A simple but very elegant napkin fold which can even be done with paper napkins.
