Round Himo single knot / 2 rings
This is a nice and formal knot. A standard.

Step 2
Hold them with one hand with the pompoms at the front. Take the right back himo, make it a loop around the whole thing and make it go under its start to make a knot. Tighten.

Step 3
Do the same with the left himo, tighten, and you're done!

Step 2
Turn it around and hold it with one hand. Make a tiny loop with both himo behind the pompoms.

* When the Haori pom pom is crumpled
What if I come to this, let's rely on the steam to the portion of the bunch. This is suitable good to held over the mouth of the boiling to have a kettle, it would be good to rely a little release the iron of steam (it'd better not press directly bunch with an iron). And it becomes exactly 100% original and can not be guaranteed, but in so became bunches, to return to the somehow the original as in the photo below.
