Nailing the Dimple
Getting the dimple right is hard, especially given the way most ties like to form their own dimple off to the edge of the four-in-hand. To help, when you get to the knot-tying stage shown above, pause and tug laterally on the outside edges of the strip of fabric indicated by the arrow. This will remove any wrinkles in the nascent knot and should prevent them from forming part of the final product. Continue with the Claw maneuver as described in the other post.
(Do you see how I added that arrow for your convenience and understanding? I did that for you. Because I care.)
