6516 viewsThe true lover's knot is the name for several knots, including the Middleman's knot, Fisherman's knot and Shamrock knot. The most popular version, the Middleman's knot, is actually a bend created by interlacing the loops from opposing overhand knots with the opposite line. This knot is very similar to a two stranded Matthew Walker's knot, the difference being that in Matthew Walker's knot the standing ends and the working ends are on the same sides, and in this knot they are opposed.pydavies

Shoelace-knot.jpg
140 viewsShoelaces can be tied with almost any type of knot. The most common bow, however, is a variant on two half knots tied one on top of the other. The second half-knot is looped in order to allow for quick untying.
