The half-Windsor knot, also known as the single Windsor knot, is a way of tying a necktie which produces a neat, triangular knot. The half-Windsor is derived from the Windsor in that it is only brought up around the loop on one side rather than both. It works well with light and medium weight fabrics.

- Start with the tie around your neck with the small end down to about the midway point of the wider end.
- Flip the wider end over the small end.
- Swing the wide end around the back.
- Bring the wide end up and under the knot to the second side.
- Carry the wide end across the front from left to right, this creates a loop.
- Bring the wide end back up through the loop between your tie and collar.
- Now slip the wide end through the loop that you created.
- Tighten knot and center with both hands. Tip: make sure to pull the wide end down while you’re pulling up on the part of the wide end that went up through the hole between your neck and the necktie
