Bottle #2, Bitters, With Turk’s Head Variants For A Dress Outfit
This is a fine bottle of bitters. It seems like it should wear a fine set of togs.
The knots on this bottle are:
The lid is improved in both looks and function with a Spanish Ring knot, done is white paracord.
The neck of the bottle is covered in a black Turk’s Head of 9 Leads X 4 Bights, doubled.
The shoulders are done in a bi-color Pineapple knot. The base Turk’s Head is a 5 Lead X 9 Bight knot.
Below this is a 3 strand grommet in black paracord. This knot also bears the Chinese Button knot.
The first knot on the body of the bottle is a 5 Lead X 4 Bight Turk’s Head, doubled in white paracord. The edges of the knot are worked to show a straight edge rather than the normal lobes. This is the edge treatment that Bruce Grant uses in his “Colima Lazy-Man Button”.
The main knot on this piece is a Pineapple interweave, done on an 11 Lead X 10 Bight Turk’s Head. The bi-color weave makes this a handsome knot.
The black ring around the bottom of the bottle is a Turk’s Head knot of 5 Leads X 14 Bights, in black paracord.
Remember, if you like the bottles there are many of them covered in earlier posts that were not numbered, just named.
All these knots taken as a whole make this bottle stand out in a line of knot-covered bottles.
Thank you for stopping by my site. The parade of knots keeps marching on. Come back and see the next change. If you can think of any way to improve either my site, or my knots, please let me know. It will be greatly appreciated:
