Halocho # 508 - Knots on Shabbat

Taking both ends of a string and crossing them over - like when tying your shoes - is permitted on Shabbat.

Crossing them over twice - thereby creating a knot - is forbidden.

Tying a knot at the end of a piece of string is also forbidden. Joining 2 or more pieces of string this way is also forbidden.

Tying knots is one of the 39 forbidden categories of work forbidden on Shabbat.
