Kelvin knot

The kelvin knot is similar to the Four-in-hand, but faces the seam and results in a slightly fuller knot. It is named after the mathematical physicist and engineer William Thomson (Lord Kelvin). Kelvin is an extension of the simple knot. Like simple knots, Kelvin starts from inside the tie resulting in an inverted tail. This knot produces a uniform and streamlined knot in shape four-in-hand but slightly fuller and more angular.
