How to Tie a St. Andrew Knot

The St. Andrew Knot is a medium-large in thick tying method that is similar in its look to the half-windsor knot. The St. Andrew knot is slightly asymmetrical and forms a little thicker knot than the half-Windsor (yet thinner than the full Windsor). This tying method is tied starting with the necktie upside-down. The St. Andrew Knot is considered a relatively easy to form knot that looks good even for beginners. It will be a good choice where a thick, slightly asymmetrical look is wanted.
