|| The finished "Ian Knot" is identical to either the
Standard Shoelace Knot or the
Two Loop Shoelace Knot. Because it was tied much more quickly and symmetrically, the laces suffer less wear and
tear and thus last longer.
If your finished knot comes out crooked, it's probably because you tie your
Starting Knot the opposite way to mine. This will result in an un-balanced "Granny Knot", which both sits
crooked and comes undone more easily. See my
Slipping Shoelace Knots page for more information.
