Hey guys , this not is called the Linwood Torus .
I'll tell you about where I found it after the video .
But first let's get right down to it .
You can see here it's got like two little horns and uh like a head looks a little bit like a bull .
Hence the name , I'm gonna untie it now .
So you can see how many steps there are kind of and what order they go in .
Now this uh I'm tying it with a magnet tie .
You definitely don't need a magnet tie .
I just happen to pick this tie because it looks good with the shirt .
So my right side here is a big end .
My left side is a little end .
Now , notice how choked up little end is it ?
It's just right off camera just like this .
This is a very hungry knot .
It needs a lot of fabric .
So make sure you give it enough food .
So take it around and do the cross and then pull it on the back .
Keep all these beginning folds loose .
You don't want to be tightening anything right now .
So just keep it pretty loose .
I'm tying mine a little bit different to the inventor Linwood Dark .
Um I think my version is a little bit better .
I'm not sure , but I tried both ways and just do mine and then you could find his video and do his and see if you think , but pull it on the right side and create a spiral and then go on the back and then up through the middle to create a pretty traditional tie beginning .
See now it's gonna get weird first .
It's gonna get weird right away , loosen it up .
Stay on your right side .
Now you're gonna feed it through here and through here , you're gonna go through both of those .
So take it and then go right through there and try to keep it kind of going slow because this is gonna want to tangle up , keep your tail end under control , pull it all through and then take a peek .
So you can see there it is that mean there's the big end of the tie going through these loops .
Now you can tighten these loops a little bit , you know , to use , you're gonna pull on that to tighten that one .
You're gonna pull on this one to tighten your left one .
I mean , there's a lot of practice making perfect kind of going on here but tighten them up a bit and then take this around the back .
Sorry , let's do that again .
So I have this here .
Now I'm gonna take this up through the back .
OK , guys .
All right .
And now this is gonna go through that middle part you made that's in between this one that's going down through there .
You'll notice this , this tie is a double sided .
So it's got plat on one side and paisley on the other .
That's what makes it cool , but I'm using the paisley side .
All right .
So now you can see it looks kind of like a mess .
Um That's true .
But a lot of this knot is in post production .
I like to call , like I say , now you gotta sort of tighten up a lot of little pieces and keep pulling on it and keep on doing it until you get it the way you need .
Um There's sort of a lot of ways to go with it .
You can tighten it tight and then it becomes like a really strong knot with like cool lines on it or you can go like me and I like to loosen it up a little bit so you can actually see the horns of this torus shape .
That's what I like to do .
So just gonna give it a few tweaks , it does hold together quite nicely .
It seems like it's really loose , but it does hold together .
You put your collar down , tighten it up all the way and there we go , the Lynwood Torus .
Now , this was brought to my attention on Instagram .
Um Linwood Dark is the Instagram and Twitter name and , or sorry .
Lynwood is a Twitter name and Lynwood darkest seems to be his name .
Uh , I hope that's right .
I'm sorry if it isn't .
But , yeah , Lynwood definitely is .
So , he invented this knot originally .
It was called the , uh , the Lynn .
But , uh we , we convinced him to call it the Torus the Linwood Toru .
He's , uh , check out his youtube channel .
He's a real innovator .
He's got these , uh like uh rings , he uses to do knots and there's like these metal rings that he gets and he's got some pretty cool stuff going on .
I think I'm gonna tie some of the knots .
I I see in this channel uh in the coming episodes , but this one really jumped out at me now right now .
My tie is normal length with this uh big strong uh head .
This , this head though , I think is almost too strong .
I would use this with a vest usually because the vest would keep the tie under control .
And this big , it's kind of a knot where the knot is just so powerful .
I think it's pretty awesome .
So , yeah , with , I've worn this twice out and about and I've worn a vest both times or cardigan once and a vest once and people gave me really great feedback .
They say it looks like a trophy or a bowl .
I get both of those .
So I hope you enjoyed the video .
Hope it's easy to follow .
Uh this is a pretty complicated knot .
So , you know , I watched it a few times .
Uh Thank you .
Thanks for watching .
