Finished Knot

Finished Ian's Secure Shoelace Knot picture

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.

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.
