Fieggen Shoelace Knot Tying

Tie a half knot, and tighten. Form a loop with each end with one end in front and one behind. Pass each loop across and into the other loop. Pull tight to form the bow. Adjust the ends and loops for a neat appearance.

Fieggen Shoelace Knot Details

Uses: The Fieggen Shoelace Bow produces a shoelace bow with fewer steps than the usual technique. It is easily learned and provides a quick, convenient alternative.

Origin: Ian Fieggen describes it as the Ian Knot on his Shoelace Website.

Structure: After the usual Half Hitch, two loops are prepared. They are formed with each loose end adjacent to the neighboring shoelace hole, i.e., one loose end is in front and the other is behind. The result is a pair of loops essentially similar to a clove hitch. The difference is that the loops are NOT stacked under each other as for a clove hitch. The loops are passed inside each other as shown which results in a Bow.
