FreedomKnot™ Shoelace Knot

This is yet another of the secure knots on which my own Ian's Secure Shoelace Knot is based. Make an “O” and pass a loop through it from both the front and the back.

Completed Starting Knot

Step 1:

Begin with a regular Left-over-Right Starting Knot.

Step 2:

Cross the right (blue) lace over the left (yellow) lace to form an “O” in the middle. The blue lace is now the left lace.

Step 3:

Make the left (blue) lace into a loop and begin to wrap it around the back of the “O” in the middle of the laces.

Step 4:

Feed the left (blue) loop through the “O” to end up in front.

Step 5:

Now, make the right (yellow) lace into a loop, this time wrapping it around the front of the “O” in the middle.

Step 6:

Feed the right (yellow) loop through the “O” to end up at the back.

Step 7:

Now, simply pull the loops to tighten the knot. The whole twisted mess of the previous drawing will rearrange itself into a neat finished knot.

Finished Knot

Finished FreedomKnot Shoelace Knot

The finished “FreedomKnot Shoelace Knot” should be a symmetrical knot with a separate wrap at either side.
