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.

  • 1. Start with the small end of the tie on the right and the wide end on the left. The tip of the wide end should rest slightly below your belly-button (this will vary depending on your height and the length & thickness of your tie). Only move the active (small) end.
  • 2. Small end over the wide end to the left.
  • 3. Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • 4. Down to the left.
  • 5. Around the back of the wide end to the right.
  • 6. Up to the center, towards neck loop.
  • 7. Through the neck loop and down to the right.
  • 8. Across the front to the left.
  • 9. Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • 10. Down through the loop you've just created in the front.
  • 11. Tighten the knot by pulling down on the small end. Slide the knot up & adjust.
