How To Tie A Wild Rag - Page 2 of 2
This article covers how to tie a wild rag knot. This is the second of two pages.
With your right hand, pick up the tail of the right (red) side of the wild rag. Take the tail through the part of the wild rag wrapped around your fingers. Be sure to go UNDER the part of the wrap closest to the ends of your fingers, but OVER the part of the wrap closest to your wrist.
Pull the (red) tail all the way through to the left.
Then take it back to the right side going UNDER the rest of the wild rag.
This should be the result.
Now take the tail of the right (red) side of the wild rag back through the wraps around your fingers again. This time, go OVER the part of the wrap closest to the ends of your fingers, and UNDER the part of the wrap closest to your wrist.
Remove your left hand from the knot, then gently pull the knot tight and you're done!
When tightening your knot keep in mind that many knots have to be pulled tight correctly or the knot is ruined, and this is one of them. Slowly tighten and manipulate the knot until it has an even appearance similar to the one in the photo below.
Remember, the finished knot on this page was tied pretty far down the wild rag to make capturing clear photos easier. In reality, you'll probably want to tie your wild rag knots higher up, closer to the neck. For an example you can see the photo at the beginning of this article.
