Surgeon's Knot Flip Book
Fold right (blue) end into a "loop";
Pass left (yellow) end behind loop;
Finish wrapping around the loop;
Push left (yellow) loop into "hole";
Loop emerges out the right side;
Wrap loop a second time;
Feed loop through a second time;
Pull tight to complete the knot.
The finished knot should be a tight, closed knot with a double wrap around the middle, as compared to the single
wrap of either my
Ian Knot or any
Standard Shoelace Knot.
Because the Surgeon's Shoelace Knot isn't formed symmetrically, the finished knot can end up looking crooked,
especially if there's not enough slack for the laces to rearrange themselves during tightening.
