'Tieing' the KnotIn the case of tying a knot in a necktie, a picture is definitely worth a thousand words. Believe it or not, there's a specific website that will show you exactly how to go about making the following popular knots:
  • Windsor Knot
  • Half Windsor Knot
  • Four in Hand Knot
  • Tying a bow tie.

A WikiAnswers participant explains the steps

  1. Stand in front of the mirror with your collar up, your shirt buttoned all the way to the top, and the tie around your neck. The thick end of the tie should be on the side of your dominant hand. So if you're right-handed, the wider end should be hanging on your right side.
  2. Look for a seam on the front of the narrow end of the tie.
  3. Move the thick end over the narrow end so they cross each other on the seam.
  4. Pull the thick end behind the narrow end, bring it around, and lay it over the narrow end again.
  5. Repeat. Wrap the thick end around the narrow end once more, just as described in the previous step.
  6. Pull the thick end of the tie all the way through the loop around your neck.
  7. Pull the thick end down through the knot.
  8. Tighten the knot by sliding it up the narrow end. Make sure your tie is straight and the length is appropriate.
