How To Tie A Balthus Knot

How To Tie A Balthus Knot

 

  1. Drape a LONG tie around your neck with the seam upward and the thick end on your left. The thick end should hang at least to mid-thigh and the thin end to the center of the chest.
  2. Cross the thin end over the thick.
  3. Bring the thick end up in front, tuck it down behind the thin end and cross behind it.
  4. Bring the thick end back up in front and loop over the thin end, this time on the left side of the forming knot.
  5. Tuck the thick end down and across, finishing with it behind the thin end and to its right.
  6. Flip the thick end upward and loop it over the center of the knot.
  7. Now bring the thick end down behind the knot, crossing from right to left.
  8. Bring the thick end horizontally across the front of the knot, crossing from left to right.
  9. Bring the thick end behind the knot and upward. Leave a little looseness in the horizontal pass you just made.
  10. Tuck the thick end through this horizontal pass.
  11. Adjust by tugging gently down on the thin end while snugging the knot in place with your other hand. Ideally, the tie beneath the knot should be quite wide but still fall to your beltline.
