# An adjustable loop necktie that can be undone by pulling is permissible if one intends to take it out within 24 hours. Some permit even if the tie isn’t usually undone after wearing. <Ref> Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchata(15:58), Rabbi Reuven Feinstein in name of his father Rav Moshe Feinstein </ref>
== A bow on top of a single knot==
# Tying your shoes According to Ashkenazim, it is permissible to tie one's shoelaces or a decorative ribbon on a blouse with a bow-knot on top of a single knot (initial winding) is permissible only if it’s meant to be untied within 24 hours. <Ref> Shulchan Aruch (317:5) rules that a bow-knot isn’t a Kesher, on this the Rama adds that a bow on a single knot is permissible. The Mishna Brurah (317:29) qualifies this that it’s only where the single knot isn’t meant to last (more than 24 hours). However the Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchata 15:53 (in new edition 15:56) concurs. </ref> According to Sephardim it is permissible even if it isn't meant to be untied within 24 hours, yet it's preferable to make sure to untie it within 7 days. <ref> Yalkut Yosef(317:11), Az Nidabru 6:22, and Rav Ovadyah in Kol Sinai (Koshair #5 ) rule that some permit even if the single knot is meant to last but says it preferable to be stringent if the knot is meant to last 7 days. </ref># Someone doing the wrapping of an Ashkenaz Sefer Torah (Gelilah) and has to tie a sash around the Torah, it’s permissible it's preferable to just wrap the sash around the Torah and tuck in the end, however, if that's not possible then some are lenient to tie a bow on top of a single knot. If the sash is long enough that it’ll be tight if you just do a single knot and then wrap it around and tuck in the end, it’s preferable. <Ref> Sh"t Tzitz Eliezer 7:29, Shalmat Chaim 185, Beir Moshe 6:55. </ref> while others are strict unless one is planning on untying it within 24 hours. <ref>Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchata 15:53 (in new editions 15:56) is strict unless one is planning to untie it within 24 hours, however, in the footnote (15:188) he quotes Rav Shlomo Zalman who said that the minhag is to be lenient.</ref>
== Double knots==
# If without intent one made a double knot when tying his shoes he can untie it. <Ref> Mishnat Halachot 3:38, Kol Sinai Koshair 3:5 </ref>
# One can untie a double knot that is made on a candy bag given out at shul for a simcha. <Ref> Toldot Yitzchak O”C 2:11 </ref>
 
==Shoelaces==
# It is permissible to tie one's shoelaces with bow on top of a single knot only if one plans to untie it within 24 hours. <ref>Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchata 15:53 (in new edition 15:56) </ref>
