Knot Dossier

  • About This Knot

    This knot was invented by Linwood Darkis (@CrazyLinwood). It is called the taurus because if it’s bull like appearance. Although I have also seen people say it looks like a trophy. Both are interpretations are equally awesome. This knot is unlike any other knot in construction, except perhaps some of Linwoods other inventions.

  • Difficulty: High

    It is a good amount of moves, many of which you probably aren’t used to. The length is also a little tricky so set aside some practice time.

  • Fabric Consumption: High

    Give it plenty of slack because you will be going around and around for a while.

  • Symmetry: High

    Considering how strange some of the moves are I am amazed how symmetrical the result is! It really does look like a bull’s head with horns on both sides.

  • Style: Solids, Paisley, Patterns

    The general rule of thumb is, the more complex/ornate the knot itself the more tame the tie pattern should be. Stripes will get severely distorted with this knot so it might be risky.

  • Venue: Celebratory, Casual

    It is very new and from a “traditional” point of view, quite strange. That is why I don’t think it is ready for formal settings yet. Although casually, and at parties, rock on!

      What do you mean “exactly like this one just with two lines in the middle?” Sounds like yours isn’t exactly like this one. Let me see a picture.
