Ian Knot = Ian's Fast Shoelace Knot diagram

My own Ian Knot (yes – I'm the inventor) is the World's Fastest Shoelace Knot. Make a loop with both ends and simultaneously pull them through each other to form an almost instant knot.

Begin with regular “Starting Knot” Fold both lace ends into “loops” Twist both loops anti-clockwise Cross loops, left (yellow) in front Feed loops through each other Loops emerge from both sides Pull tight to complete the knot Begin with regular “Starting Knot” Fold both lace ends into “loops” Twist both loops anti-clockwise Cross loops, left (yellow) in front Feed loops through each other Loops emerge from both sides Pull tight to complete the knot

NOTE: 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 sits crooked and comes undone more easily. See my Granny Knot page for more information.
