Medicine Bottle # 40; A Triple Header, A Gaucho Knot, A Herringbone Knot, And A Turk’s Head.

Another decade on the count for the “Medicine Bottle Collection”. Forty seemed like a high number when I first typed it, but the reality is that this is a fraction of the bottles since all this started. I don’t recommend it very highly as a hobby — but as long as I have the bottles anyway …

The knots on this bottle are; from the top/left end:

One of my stock knots, a Gaucho knot of 9 Leads X 7 Bights, done in black paracord.

The center knot is a Herringbone knot of 10 Leads X 8 Bights, in green paracord.

The bottom ring is a black Turk’s Head of 3 Leads X 5 Bights.

One thing to keep in mind is that the interweaves are not subject to the common divisor rule that regulates which single strand Turk’s Head knots are possible. As an example; 2 Turk’s Heads of 5 Leads X 4 Bights interwoven to give a Herringbone knot of 10 Leads X 8 Bights. This would be an impossible Turk’s Head to make with a single strand. You can tie this as a “perfect Herringbone knot” using one strand by deflecting into an interweave.

Thank you for coming by my site. Come back again; the parade of knots is marching on:
