This is the next piece in the line of hot sauce bottles – another dead soldier that fills the uniform nicely. The knots used were:
On the cap a Spanish Ring knot done in gutted white paracord.
The neck is covered by a Herringbone knot.
The shoulders of the bottle are covered in a form-following Turk’s Head knot of 9 Leads x 8 Bights, doubled.
A white grommet of paracord laid up into a three ply cord.
The body of the bottle has a double Gaucho knot of 3 passes.
Below this is another twisted and laid up grommet of three ply cord made, out of white paracord.
The lowest knot is a 8 Lead x 7 Bight Turk’s Head knot, doubled.
The white grommets not only serve as accents, but dress the scalloped edges where two Turk’s Head knots meet. It is just happy serendipity that they also make the other knots look better.
Thank you for coming by, come back again:
