DIY Origami Bow Tie Tutorial from Fiber Lab here. I initially didn’t post this because I thought it was really really difficult, then a new post with more instructions came out. For more Father’s Day DIYs (like a 3D foldable tool box card) go to my kids’ craft blog here:

Finished the first 38 rounds of colorwork so I’m taking a break to weave in ends. Please don’t ask me the number of times I’ve had to frog the rounds because I found out I screwed up on the pattern. ;_;
