A Hot Sauce Bottle Covered In Turk’s Head Variants, With White Shoulders & Green Body


A hot sauce bottle covered in knots. Turk's Head variants and a Headhunter knot.

Onward … with the march of the hot sauce bottles. This is a standard sized hot sauce bottle. Starting at the top, the knots used were:

A bi-color Turk’s Head knot of 7 Leads X 2 Bights, tripled in black & white paracord, with 2 strands of white split by the black strand.

A Spanish Ring knot in black paracord dresses the join of the knot which covers the neck with that covering the shoulders.

The shoulders are covered by a double Gaucho knot of 2 passes. This knot does a good job of following the curves of the bottle — but without the knot on the neck of the bottle as a stopper, it would have ended up on the neck rather than the shoulders. There appears to be no way to make the lower part of the knot hold tightly enough to stop this creeping.

A thin 3 Lead X 13 Bight Turks Head carries a Chinese button knot with the ends left long as a simple tassel.

The body of the bottle is covered by a Headhunter knot of 2 passes, tripled. I like the look of this knot, and it provides an excellent gripping surface.

The bottom knot is a Gaucho knot of 2 passes.

Thank you for coming by. I would appreciate your thoughts on anything on this site. Come again:
