Four in Hand How to Tie a Tie

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

Step 2: Cross the wide end over the narrow end.

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

Step 4: Bring the wide end over the narrow end to the left.

Step 5: Pass the wide end under the left part of the loop around your neck.

Step 6: Pass the wide end downward through the loop it has formed. Tighten and shape the knot.

Step 7: Adjust the position of the knot, holding it with one hand and pulling the narrow end with the other.

Step 8: The Four-in-Hand knot is complete!
