Crossed Ian Knot Flip Book
This knot is a curiosity that often results from tying the Ian Knot incorrectly. Twisting the loops in the wrong direction results in a knot with the ends crossed within the knot. It seems more secure – but can easily fall apart.
1Begin with regular “Starting Knot”.
2Fold both lace ends into “loops”.
3Twist both loops CLOCKWISE.
4Cross loops, left (yellow) in front.
5Feed loops through each other.
6Loops emerge from both sides.
7Pull tight to complete the knot.
