This is an improved version of the Four-in-Hand knot with an additional turn of the wide end across the knot. This turn makes the Victoria knot longer and wider which is good for shirts with wide collars. Take into account that due to its simple structure the knot tends to work loose and will require adjustment during the day. The Victoria knot uses a bit more length of the tie than the Four-in-Hand, which can also be beneficial in case the tie is too long.

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 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 under the narrow end to the right again.

Step 6: Bring the wide end over the narrow end to the left.
Tip: In this step you may place a finger between the knot and the wide end and hold it there until the knot is done – this will help you pass the end through the right loop in the last step.

Step 7: Pass the wide end between the collar and the knot from beneath.

Step 8: Pass the wide end downward through the last loop it formed. Tighten and shape the knot.

Step 9: Adjust the position of the knot, holding it with one hand and pulling the narrow end with the other.

Step 10: The Victoria knot is complete!
