How to tie a Christensen Knot

The elegant knot, also known as “Christensen”.It captivates as well as Prince Albert knot motif through the intersection, which in the case of a  Christensen knot comes in two variants.

Elegance from Sweden

In 1917, a mail order house offered in his catalog of unusual knot motif intersection. A few years later, a Swedish producer of neckties Amanda Christensen has released the second time this catalog, at the same time perpetuating the name of fashion. Initially, the name is determined the ties with two equally narrow ends (“Equal”). In their case, in fact can be seen clearly cross. In such a node can be attributed to the modern ties, but they may not be wide or thick material. In the case of modern ties in vain you seek cross: in addition to the appropriate knot is created only an additional small disc, so that well-formed knot looks nice extended.

You can apply the same technique to bind and translate the wide end through the front bar – but then do not get a hybrid of fashion. As at the junction of Prince Albert, pass the wide end under the rear crossbar, which will make the front becomes visible as the puck at the top or at the bottom of the knot. While holding the narrow end, suggested to knot the collar. Before it completely take out, place the hybrid bond. Try it if you like more, when it is visible at the bottom or at the top.
