How to Tie a Pratt Knot

How to Tie a Pratt Knot

The Pratt knot is unusual in that its starting position is reverse side out. It uses less length than the half-Windsor or Windsor knots, and so is well suited to shorter ties or taller men. Unlike the four-in-hand knot, the Pratt method produces a symmetrical knot. It is of medium thickness.  It is also known as the Shelby knot and the Pratt-Shelby.
