The knot is named by the two Cambridge University physicists; Thomas Fink and Yong Mao, research fellows working from the Cavendish laboratories and authors of the comprehensive "85 ways to tie a tie".
In their own words: "This is the principal 8-move, 2-centre knot. As its sequence suggests, the Cavendish is a concatenation of two four-in-hands, one being a mirror image of the other. This gives an idea of its shape: similar to the four-in-hand, but much bigger."
The video is to be viewed as if you were looking in a mirror.
