How To Tie A Christensen Knot
The Christensen knot, also known as the Cross knot, is an enormous aesthetic knot that needs a wide spread collar for accommodation. It works well in both casual and formal events and is suited for all kind of ties and individuals.
Christensen knot is a really simple style to wear around and the tying technique is even simpler. Go through the following in a step wise fashion to tie a perfect Christensen knot.
Step-1 Drape the necktie around your collar such that the wide end is on your left side while the narrow end hangs on the right side. This knot is tied using the wide end so make sure to keep it comparatively longer than the other end. The narrow end should be positioned high above the belly button.
Step-2 Cross the wide end over the narrow end from left to right.
Step-3 Make the wide end go around the back of the narrow end so that it enters into the left region.
Step-4 Feed the wide end up through the top of the necktie and bring it back down on the left side.
Step-5 Cross the wide end to the right side from the back of the forming knot.
Step-6 Wrap the wide end around the front of the knot two times and keep the loops loose enough to feed the wide end in later steps. By the end of this step, the wide end would lie in the left region with the seam facing inward and two loops would be present in front of the knot stacked on top of one another.
Step-7 Feed the wide end up through the top of the knot and back down the front.
Step-8 Tuck the tip of the wide end beneath the two loops and pull it all the way downward. Make sure to hold onto the loops with one hand so it doesn’t get messed up during pulling down the wide end.
Step-9 Tug on the narrow end to push the knot against the center of the collar.
Step-10 Adjust the loops so they appear in form of an oblique band across the front of the knot.
And you’re done! The Christensen knot, also known as the Cross knot, is an enormous aesthetic knot that needs a wide spread collar for accommodation. It works well in both casual and formal events and is suited for all kind of ties and individuals. Perhaps, it’s one of the most versatile styles that exist today.
