Finished Knot

Finished Standard Shoelace Knot picture

The finished Standard Shoelace Knot is identical to either my Ian Knot, the World's Fastest Shoelace Knot, or to the Two Loop Shoelace 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 both sits crooked and comes undone more easily. See my Granny Knot page for more information.
