Finished Knot

Finished Ian's Secure Shoelace Knot

The finished “Ian's Secure Shoelace Knot” should be a tight, closed knot with a symmetrical double wrap around the middle, as compared to the single wrap of simpler shoelace knots.

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, which will neaten up the inner parts.
