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.
Lay the napkin out so that one edge is nearest you.
Fold the napkin in half by bringing the edge furthest from you across to the edge nearest you.
Fold the napkin into quarters by folding the left edge across to the right edge.
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.
Take the topmost corner and fold it diagonally down to the bottom right corner.
Turn the whole napkin over, so that the three open corners are to your top right.
Take the right hand edge and fold it about a third of the way across to the left.
Now take the left edge and fold it about a third of the way across to the right.
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.
