How to Tie the Murrell Knot

About the Murrell Knot

Invented by Brent Murrell in 1995, the Murrell is an inversion of a classic Windsor knot. In its completed form, the tail end lays in front of the large end creating a playful layered look. The knot produced by the Murrell is triangular, small, surprisingly wide. Turn convention on its head with this unique and flippant knot.
