How to Tie a Van Wijk Knot

This knot is claimed to have been created by the artist Lisa Van Wijk. Her purpose was to invent the tallest knot possible. Van Wijk knot is one that has a very cool cylindrical effect, giving your tie even more structure. While it might seem like a strange knot at first, you’ll eventually fall for the almost futuristic look of this tie knot over time.
