How to Tie a Kelvin Knot

The Kelvin Knot is a another variant to the popular Four in hand tying method. The Kelvin tying method is tied with the necktie upside-down (like the Pratt knot), and is slightly thicker than the four in hand, only by an extra of 1/2 loop. The extra half spin also contributes to a more symmetrical look of the tie. The kelvin knot tying method will be perfect for cases when only a little thicker knot is needed, but still preserving the same famous look.

Kelvin Knot Step 1

Place the tie on your neck, upside down. Place the wide end of the tie to the right and the narrow end to the left. Place the tie so the wide end will be longer than the narrow end (about 10 inches longer).

Bring the wide end of the tie across the narrow end, underneath it, to the left.

Kelvin Knot Step 3

Bring the wide end of the tie across the narrow end, above it, to the right.

Kelvin Knot Step 4

Pass the wide end of the tie across the narrow end, underneath it, to the left.

Kelvin Knot Step 5

Again, bring the wide end of the tie across the narrow end, above it, to the right.

Kelvin Knot Step 6

Pass the wide end of the tie inside the neck loop, upwards.

Kelvin Knot Step 7

Pass the wide end of the tie down, inside the loop which fully created the last step (see image). Finally, tighten the tie around your neck.
