Knotty Notions

Basics: Knot Anatomy: The Making Of: Part 1

version 1 of a knot anatomy illustration So, I was thinking about making a knot anatomy illustration to follow up on the cord anatomy (to be followed sometime in the future with a tassel anatomy illustration). I certainly needed at least a polygonal knot of some kind and then a mat knot, maybe Lydia Chen’s creeper knot as well.

Tied and scanned the knots and was contemplating the labels when I realized the midpoint label would be much better served by a bi-coloured knot. Also the double coin (Carrick Bend) knot doesn’t like the president’s braid/shoe lace cord at all.

Back to the drawing board… tying board? string box? example supplies?
