How to tie an "Ian knot" for leather shoe laces [Easy-to-understand explanation with video]
I will explain how to tie the Ian knot (Ian knot) of shoelaces with a video.
Ian Knot can be used not only for the leather shoes used in the article, but also for climbing shoes, sneakers, and running shoes.
The Ian knot is often thought to be difficult to tie, but once you learn it, it is very easy and quicker than a bow and can be tied in an instant.
I want to wear shoes early when I remember! It is convenient when

How to tie the Ian knot
I'll show you how to tie it.
1: Wrap the white string around the red string.
2: Make a loop with the left and right strings. Put the white string on the bottom and the red string on top to make a loop.
3: Put the red string loop on top of the white string loop.
4: Grasp the overlapping string from between each loop.
5: Pull the string you grabbed from between the rings.
6: Tie it tightly and you're done.
If you think Ian Knot is difficult, it's easy if you remember here
If you can't tie it well, remember the point of "Procedure: 2".
When passing the string through the loop in "Step: 4", pass the blue part of the loop made in "Step: 2". Note that the part painted in blue is the side that connects to the end of the string. (It is not the side that connects to the middle knot.)
It is also necessary to pay attention to how the strings are layered when making the loop. Regarding the part circled in yellow, the white string on the left should be placed underneath, and the red string on the right should be placed on top.
By making the loop in "Step: 2" with the above points in mind, you can make a beautiful Ian knot.
Please refer to the following examples of failures.
When Ian knot becomes vertical
If Ian Knot becomes vertical, please review "Step: 3".
If you put the left loop on top and pass the string through the loop, it will be vertical.
Conversely, stacking the right hoop on top will succeed.
When Ian Knot can only do one hoop
If you can only do one hoop, review "Procedure: 2".
When making a loop, if you layer the left string and the right string on top of each other to make a loop , one string will not get entangled and the loop will become one.
By layering the left string on the bottom and the right string on top to create a loop, you can make a beautiful Ian knot.
If you can't tie an Ian knot
If you can't tie the Ian knot at all, let's review "Procedure: 2".
The left and right loops are made here, but you can't tie the knot unless the loop strings are crossed .
You can make an Ian knot by crossing the left and right strings and stacking the left string on the bottom and the right string on top .
Can Ian Knot be untied?
I heard that the Ian knot is a difficult knot to untie, but it does! The one who thought. I'll explain why.
Difference between Ian Knot and Bowknot
There are quite a few sites that say, "Ian knots are harder to untie than bow knots," but Ian knots and bow knots are the same knot. The only difference is the tying process.
In other words, the Ian knot and the bow are the same, so they are equally difficult to untie.
The origin of the Ian knot seems to be Ian Fieggen, who seems to have devised it, and it seems that the Ian knot was taken from the name, but it seems that this Ian knot can be tied more quickly than the bow knot . It is true that Ian knots can be tied more quickly than bow knots.
The Ian knot is a knot that allows you to tie a bow quickly, not a knot that is difficult to unravel, so if you want to learn how to tie a knot that is difficult to unravel, we recommend the Berluti knot.
Let's compare the Ian knot and the bow knot.
It's the same when you look at the knot.
It's the same with how the strings are tied.
Advantages and disadvantages of Ian Knot
I think you have understood that the knot is the same as the bow knot, but I will summarize the advantages and disadvantages of the Ian knot again.
[Advantages of Ian Knot]
- You can make a bow faster than a regular bow
[Disadvantages of Ian Knot]
- cumbersome to remember
- As difficult to untie as a bow
The Ian knot has the advantage of being able to tie a bow quickly, but it is not particularly difficult to untie.
If you want to learn how to tie a knot that is difficult to unravel, we recommend the Berluti knot, which is quite difficult to unravel. Please refer to the following article for Berluti knots.
