I usually go with the Four-in-Hand. That's what I was taught, so I just stuck with it. And lately, I've been very pleased with my knots (good size with noticeable- but not too large- dimples). Â davei, the FIH is relatively not a lot of work. Compared to the Half-Windsor, anyway. Maybe, I just think that, because I was raised on the former. Personally, I don't have a clue how to tie the full windsor. I just think it's a lot of knots all together. Maybe I can find someone to teach me.
