As you start folding, begin with left strand moving it straight over the top of the knot towards the right side and bringing top strand straight down over the top of the knot towards the bottom at the top of the straight that was brought to the right.
Similarly, at the top of the knot fold the bottom and at the same time knit it over the thread that was brought to the left exactly below the thread brought to the right. Now heave all the four threads along their individual paths in order to have the braid tightened.
