How exactly do you wear the cincture/cord of Saint Joseph around you waist and how to tie properly? The way that informational webpages have showed is that you "fold" a cincture in half and knot it around your waist...but the cord of St. Joseph I have is not as big/long as those other cinctures you see acolytes or others wearing. If I try folding my cord in half there is no way I can tie it around my waist...unless I'm too fat. :LOL:

Is there a way to tie and knot a shorter cord (like mine) without folding it in half first?
I suppose a regular bow is not possible?
How about a square knot?
