How to Tie a Grantchester Knot

The Grantchester Knot is a large in thick, slightly asymmetrical tie knot. It is a larger version of the St. Andrew knot, by extra 360° around the narrow end. Just like the St.Andrew knot, the Grantchester knot is tied from an upside-down starting position of the necktie. Due to the multiple steps of the tying, the Grantchester knot forms a bulky knot and uses a large length of the tie, therefore will suit a thin fabric materials or too long neckties, or just where a bulky knot is desired.
