This is actually a modified version of a flashlight that appeared here in its first layer of knots. Because it is the light I keep at bedside, it has been victimized by having another layer of knots added.
Starting at the top:
A 3 Lead X 8 Bight Turk’s Head of 3 passes. The green ring visible just above it is the rim of the knot in the lower layer.
A 7 Lead X 6 Bight Turk’s Head knot with a herringbone interweave done in two colors of paracord.
An 8 Lead X 7 Bight Turk’s Head with an over two under two weave.
The green ring below this is part of the first layer of knots; a 7 Lead X 6 Bight Turk’s Head knot doubled, and below that a single strand of green paracord to carry the button knot.
The output end of the tube is built up by layering two Spanish Ring knots in green paracord. The knot from this layer tops the Spanish Ring knots and is a 5 Lead X 14 Bight Turk’s Head, doubled in black paracord.
All these knots increase the tube diameter by about 1″, and increase the output lens flare by about 1 1/2″. It is also about doubled in weight. I wouldn’t leave it like this for anyone else but it is a near perfect fit for my hands. Yes it has been suggested that I am part Sasquatch …. while I will admit to a problem buying shoes that fit, I am just not that hairy.
Thank you for stopping by. As always, I would like to hear your thoughtful suggestions for improving either the site or my knotting projects:
