All you need to do is to get a gele fold into two equal halves place it on your head or on someone else's head, you can start knotting it from either the front or the back as long as it comes out in good shape.

Tie a part tightly on your head, take the second part too and make a knot where the two meet, you can start bringing out the fold carefully without tampering with your knots.
