Standard Knot Flip Book
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”.
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.
Pull tight to complete the 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.
