How to Tie a St. Andrew Knot


Instructions for Tying a St. Andrew Knot

The instructions for tying a St. Andrew 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.

1. 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. Note that the tie should begin inside out.





2. Cross the narrow end over the other end. Now three regions are formed (Left, Right and Center).





3. Bring the wide end over the narrow end from the Left region to the Right region.





4. Bring the wide end under the knot from the Right region to the Left region.





5. Bring the wide end over to Center.





6. Bring the wide end underneath the tie knot from Center to Right.





7. Bring the wide end over the tie knot from Right to Left.





8. Bring the wide end under the narrow part of the tie from the Left region to the Center region.





9. Bring the wide end down and pass the loop in front. Ensure that the knot is tightened.





10. 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.
