Not content with how most tie knots end up being a boring old triangle, I decided to give making my own tie knot a whirl.

Here is what I came up with:


I would like to take credit but I first have to make sure it hasn't been done before.


So have any of you seen it, let me know, and point me towards reference material so I can keep learning.

Also I have no name for it yet so if any of you have ideas let me know.

I'll make a set of diagrams for this knot if it turns out to be truly original.

I like it.  The double cross?  The double back?   The basket weave? The arabesque?

I did read somewhere that apparently it was quite the thing back in the old Regency days, for a gent to invent his own unique cravat knot. Hence some of the ludicrous confections one can see displayed in portrats and such.

Bit of useless info for you, but yeah that knots pretty sweet.

I have a little book about the tying of the neck tie, from Regency times.  This one is defiantly not in there.

It reminds me somewhat of a knot used by many Scouts to tie their neckies when not using woggles. I think it is usually called the friendship knot???

So it's every hand to his rope or gun, quick's the word and sharp's the action. After all... Surprise is on our side.

I have never seen that knot before, but even if it isn't 100% original I would still very much like to see how you tied it.

Thats the one it reminded me of. This is clearly a tie for someone with 3 friends rather than 4

What a wonderful looking knot.  It looks a bit like a Diagonal, but IT ISN'T!  Looks like you might have come up with something unique, there - excellent.  Surely, it's appropriate to name it after yourself, somehow?

Apparently there are 85 ways to tie a tie.

It's been proven mathematically.

And there's a book about it too.

(I normally tie mine in a Fink Knot - discovered (or invented?) - by one of the authors.)

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-85-Ways-Tie-Aesthetics/dp/1841155683/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1340368634&sr=1-1













I'll close the door on my way out.

I found this too, but even the longest 'equations' for tying a knot don' seem to have as many steps as this one. I'd hesitantly say it is a new invention.

It is a subtle touch of elegance and the name rose knot suits it perfectly.

Part of being a Boatswain's mate is tying knots, I've books and shadow boxes of my own knots and I like to think of my self as a faux-expert and I've never seen this before.

Thanks for all the feed back everybody!

Surely, it's appropriate to name it after yourself, somehow?

Unfortunately the Bolduc knot isn't a particularly attractive, and William is too common.

Like Hez, I like the rose knot as a name.



Now onto something new.
Recently I gave making new knots another whirl, applying the weave technique, and I came up with another fairly good knot.


Now once again, has anyone seen this?
Also What should I call it?
