There are two types of shoelace knots, one is called ' Starting Knot ', which is a standard way to cross two laces. The other is a knot called ' Double Starting Knot ' that makes it difficult to untie by repeating Starting Knot twice. Basically, it starts with Starting Knot, but when trying to tie it easily or when a child practices tying, use Double Starting Knot properly.

◆ The most common way to tie shoelaces
The Ian's Shoelace Site has a page that picks up and compares many shoelace tying methods by category, so that you can refer to it when you do not know which one to choose. ' Standard Shoelace Knot ' and ' Two Loop Shoelace Knot ', which have similar tying methods, are selected as the 'most common method of tying shoelaces'.

Step 1: The Standard Shoelace Knot is tied in 6 steps in total, first with the Starting Knot.

Step 2: Hold the tip of the left string (yellow) toward the right and make a ring with the right string (blue). Thread the yellow string behind the ring.

Step 3: Wrap the blue string around the yellow string.

Step 4: Then the hole will be completed in the center, so make a ring with a yellow string and pass the tip through.
