A Hot Sauce Bottle Covered In Balck & White Tur'S Head Variants.

Another now empty condiment bottle is serving an eternal afterlife sentence as a supporting core for knots. One of these days I will have to invent something to refill these empties with. It wouldn’t look quite so strange to non-knot people if half the row of knotted bottles weren’t empty. Makes some of them wonder about you.

This one starts at the top with a Spanish Ring knot on the lid for a grip.

The upper part of the neck is covered with a bi-color Gaucho knot of 2 passes. The base knot was a 7 Lead X 5 Bight Turk’s Head.

A white Spanish Ring knot of 1 pass dresses up the edges of the knots above and below it.

The shoulders are covered by a 7 Lead X 6 Bight Turk’s Head tied in tripled paracord in white and black.

The first knot on the body of the bottle is a 3 Lead X 8 Bight Turk’s Head knot. The bights have been manipulated to give a straight edge, not the usual scallops.

Next comes a Gaucho knot of 2 passes in white.

The Pineapple knot that is in the middle of the body was raised form a 3 Lead Turk’s Head. I don’t remember how many bights were in the original; after all it is old enough to be empty.

The lowest white knot is another Gaucho knot of 2 passes.

The bottom ring is a 3 Lead X 13 Bight Turk’s Head.
