Trinity Knot

This eccentric fancy necktie knot looks good when worn to informal events. The knot needs a lot of practice to achieve the symmetrical shape as shown in the diagram. It has garnered a lot of attention in the recent years, mostly with the online audience. It carries with it certain holy-trinity connotations. The attractive knot is 3 way symmetrical and a little larger than the Windsor knot.


With the triple tucks of the knot resembling the Triquetra knot that has a Celtic appearance, one can say that it originates from the latter.
