For those in the audience who were missing their ration of hot sauce bottles with knots, here you go. The rest of you can just play along for a minute, OK?
This one I actually know which knots were used – it’s not like I usually write it down. Starting from the top and omitting any non visible knots used as mouses:
An 11 Lead X 7 bight Turk’s Head tied with gutted black paracord.
A 7 Lead X 6 Bight Turk’s Head with a matching Turk’s Head for a herringbone interweave.
A green paracord Spanish Ring knot.
A double Gaucho knot of 3 passes done in white paracord over a forgotten mouse.
The last one is a Turk’s Head of over 2, under 2, over 2, under 2 weave. I don’t know if this makes it part of the Headhunter family or not; there isn’t much documentation either way.
Now my question is, does knowing all this improve your enjoyment / appreciation of this whole thing? Should I make an effort to include this sort of information on future knots? Does it matter to you, or should I be quiet and let you look at the pretty pictures? Your wish is my command.
