About knots:

A knot is a method of fastening or securing linear material such as rope by tying or interweaving. It may consist of a length of one or several segments of rope, string, webbing, twine, strap, or even chain interwoven such that the line can bind to itself or to some other object (the "load"). Knots have been the subject of interest for their ancient origins, their common uses, and the area of mathematics known as knot theory.

About Necktie Knots:

There are four main knots used to knot neckties. In rising order of difficulty, they are:

  1. four-in-hand knot. The four-in-hand knot may be the most common.
  2. Pratt knot (the Shelby knot)
  3. half-Windsor knot
  4. Windsor knot (also redundantly called the "full Windsor"). The Windsor knot is the thickest knot of the four, since its tying has the most steps.

Other types of knots include the following:

The codes above to tying the knots is from the book, "The 85 Ways to Tie a Tie" (ISBN 1-84115-249-8) which is a book by Thomas Fink and Yong Mao. The authors were research fellows at Cambridge University’s Cavendish Laboratory.   Below is how to use the codes.
