Standard Knot Flip Book

Standard Shoelace Knot diagram

Also known as the “Bunny Rabbit” or the “Loop, Swoop and Pull” knot, this is probably the most common method for tying shoes. Make a loop with one end, wrap the other end around and pull a loop through the “hole” in the middle.

Begin with regular “Starting Knot”

Finished Knot

Finished Standard Shoelace Knot

The finished Standard Shoelace Knot is identical to either the Two Loop 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.
