A bi-color Turk's Head variant of over 2, under 2, weave, covers this bottle handsomely.

This is the next piece in the “Medicine Bottle Collection”. As most of you know by now, these are multi-purpose knots. In addition to their useful and aesthetic purposes, they also allow me to experiment with new versions of knots on a regular basis. Today’s knot is one of those test pieces.
A Turk’s Head variant of an under 2, over 2, under 2, over 2, weave. It is tripled in black and white paracord. As you could guess by the shape of this knot, it is tied over another, unsung Turk’s Head, used as a mouse. The colors make it easy to pick out in dim light — the shape makes a nice hand-filling grip. Overall this was a successful test knot, to my eyes and hands at least.
Thank you for coming by my site. Come back again; I try to keep things moving along at the parade of knots:
