Medicine Bottle #30; Turk’s Heads And A Spanish Ring Knot Dress This One, Top To Bottom

Medicine Bottle #30; Turk's Heads and a Spanish Ring knot cover this bottle.

These knots, like many of the ones you see on my site, have performed well during a long hard term of service. Like some of the other knots you see, I had to decide whether or not to post this picture — after 10 years or so, it is starting to show some age. I figure it deserves its day in the sun, after all that.

The knots on this bottle are, from the left/lid end:

The first knot is a Turk’s Head of 3 Leads X 8 Bights, done in white paracord.

The main feature knot is also a Turk’s Head. This one is of 9 Leads X 8 Bights, doubled in dark green paracord.

The white ring on the bottom of the bottle is a Spanish Ring knot of 2 passes. I don’t know if anyone cares or even if this is the way to designate these knots — but it has 13 Bights. I guess that is one of the reasons so many people forge out their own nomenclature system for knots. There doesn’t seem to be any one method which has such a dominating position that it is used by everyone.

Thank you for dropping by my site. Come back again; I, and my knots, await your pleasure:

William
