Finished Knot

Finished Equality Knot picture 1

The finished knot should be a tight, closed knot with a symmetrical, double wrap around the middle, as compared to the single wrap of either my Ian Knot or any Standard Shoelace Knot.

When viewed from the front of the shoe, the double wrap around the middle resembles an Equality "=" symbol.

The knot will naturally sit along the side of the shoe rather than across the top.

NOTE: If your finished knot looks uneven or twisted, it may easily be "worked" into a neat result as follows: Pull on the loose ends slightly as though untying the laces – this will bring the outer wraps of the knot together. Then, pull on the loops once again to re-tighten the knot – this will neaten up the inner parts.
