Finished Knot

The finished knot is quite bulky, which is helpful for consuming excess shoelace to keep the ends from dragging.

Three or more repetitions

With plenty of excess lace, the Ian Knot can be repeated as many times as desired. The result is a rather ridiculous looking construction that vaguely resembles a tree fern: A rough, thick "trunk" with two large "leaves" on top. Although novel, it's of little practical value other than for some serious shortening!
