My own Ian Knot (yes – I’m
the inventor) is the World’s Fastest Shoelace Knot. Make a loop with both ends and simultaneously pull them
through each other to form an almost instant knot.
NOTE: You don’t have to follow my instructions to the letter. So long as you retain the “core” of the technique, you
are welcome to use whatever finger movements are most comfortable for you.
The finished Ian Knot is identical to either the
Standard Shoelace Knot or the
Two Loop Shoelace Knot. Because it was tied much more quickly and symmetrically, the laces suffer less wear and tear
and thus last longer.
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.
