Hanover How to Tie a Tie

Step 1: What you see in the picture is your mirror reflection: you will see the same picture if you stand in front of the mirror. Drape the tie over your neck inside out. The wide end should be on your right. The narrow end should be about a foot long.

Step 2: Bring the wide end under the narrow end.

Step 3: Bring the wide end over the narrow end to the right. Pull the knot tight after every step to prevent it from working loose.

Step 4: Pass the wide end through the loop around your neck from beneath.

Step 5: Bring the wide end under the narrow end to the right.

Step 6: Pass the wide end between the collar and the knot from above to the left.

Step 7: Bring the wide end over the narrow end to the right.

Step 8: Pass the wide end between the collar and the knot again, but from beneath.

Step 9: Pass the wide end downward through the loop it has just formed. Tighten and shape the knot.

Step 10: Adjust the position of the knot, holding it with one hand and pulling the narrow end with the other.

Step 11: The Hanover knot is complete!
