Finished Surgeon's Shoelace Knot

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

NOTE: Because of the non-symmetrical way of tying this knot, the result may look somewhat different. This depends on how readily the laces “rearrange” themselves during tightening.
