to Tie a Four-in-hand Knot
Description of the Four-in-hand Knot
four-in-hand knot is the easiest to learn among the four most commonly
used tie knots (the four-in-hand knot, the half-Windsor knot, the Windsor knot and the Pratt knot). It is a small tie
knot that suits shirts with a narrow collar opening and is suitable
for most occasions. However, the four-in-hand knot is asymmetric,
which does not look good on wide collar shirts.
for Tying a Four-in-hand Knot
instructions for tying a four-in-hand knot are shown below. We assume
that you are right-handed in the following instructions. The figures
below are mirror images. They are what you will see if you stand in
front of a mirror.
At the beginning, the wide end of the tie should be on your right
side and the other end should be on your left side.
Cross the wide end over the other end. Now three regions are formed
(Left, Right and Center).
Bring the wide end underneath the narrow end from Left to Right.
Bring the wide end over from Right to Left.
Bring the wide end under the knot to the Center region.
Bring the wide end down and pass the loop in front. Ensure that the
knot is tightened.
Use one hand to pull the narrow end down gently and use the other
hand to move the knot up until it reaches the center of the collar.
