How To Tie A Saint Andrew Knot

How To Tie A Saint Andrew Knot

 

  1. Drape the neck-tie around your collar with the seam facing out and the thick end on your left, two to three inches lower than the desired finishing position.
  2. Cross the thick end horizontally beneath the thin end, making an X-shape under your chin.
  3. Bring the thick end horizontally across the front of the thin end.
  4. Continue looping the thick end around the thin end, passing it horizontally behind the back of the thin end from left to right.
  5. Flip the thick end vertically up and over the front of the knot, then tuck it back down behind the knot.
  6. Bring the thick end out and to the left of the thick end.
  7. Bring the thick end across the front of the knot from left to right. This will form a horizontal band. Slip a finger through it.
  8. Finally, bring the thick end up behind the knot and tuck it through the horizontal loop you made in Step 7.
  9. Pull the thick end all the way through and tighten the knot by grasping it with one hand and pulling carefully on the thick end with the other.
