This is another in the endless series of “practice knots” which I tie with no particular end use in mind. If I don’t use my hands a certain amount every evening, when I wake up they are frozen in whichever position I slept. This is aggravating mentally, and renders me useless for some time in the morning. So I have the Perfect excuse to tie knots — every day. It says so, right here on this letter from my doctor. Luckily, it is something I enjoy — much better than some mindless and utterly useless activity.
This knot is a Turk’s Head, and as per the headline, it has 21 Leads X 4 Bights. Tied doubled in green and white paracord, it makes a handsome knot. This is tied around a piece of 1/2″ nominal size PVC pipe, so it closes down very well for such a dramatic looking knot. I have worked a similar knot down tight on a 3/8″ dowel, though that is probably close to the event horizon on this knot.
Thank you for coming by my site. I do greatly appreciate your visits, and any input you care to give. Come back again; the parade of knots is marshaling well and on time:
