Two Loop Knot Flip Book
Also known as the “Bunny Ears” shoelace knot (due to its two loops) or as the “Bowknot”. Make a loop with
both ends, then simply tie a knot with them. It's often tied incorrectly, resulting in an un-balanced
Begin with regular “Starting Knot”.
Fold both lace ends into “loops”.
Cross right (blue) loop over left (yellow).
Wrap right (yellow) loop around to front.
Feed right (yellow) loop into “hole”.
Loop emerges out the right side.
Pull tight to complete the knot.
If tied correctly, the finished Two Loop Shoelace Knot is identical to either the
Standard Shoelace Knot or my own
Ian Knot, the World's Fastest 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.
