The Four in Hand Knot

The four in hand knot is a bit more narrow knot. The Four in Hand is a quick and simple knot that is asymmetrical, and a bit lop sided. It works well with button down and casual shirts, and works best with thick neckties made from heavy fabric.

It is great for less formal situations, going out on the town, or around the office. This knot can also make a shorter neck appear a bit longer because the knot is a bit more narrow. This knot is among the most popular of all knots.
