After being so surprised by the Pineapple knot coaster, how could I resist making one out of a Gaucho knot? It is not as structurally sound as the Pineapple knot, but the visual is dramatic … to say the least.
In the normal run of things this would be your typical tubular Gaucho knot with a vertical white lightning bolt flash. I have to admit that the look surprised me. I just hadn’t followed the thought to its conclusion before I started working the knot flat. Giving a set of these to someone who drank too much would be a cruel joke.
The knot is firmer than a Turk’s Head mat, but not as firm as the Pineapple knot mat. If I had to chose, I would take the Pineapple knot for both utility and visual appeal. Who knows, I may find someone who just loves these and wants a set of 48 for their next bash.
