Remove the scaffold and “tada!!” it works. happy dance. The knot is front back symmetric and the sides of the frame are fortunately balanced. I like it. I wonder though if there’s a way to balance the top and bottom so both have sauvastika knots with ears wrapped around the frame top and bottom. I’m thinking that would be easier to tie (without a scaffold) in the long run and expandable to however many units in the centre of the frame you might want. There’s also the figuring out of how to tie this one without a scaffold.
I have shown you how I developed and executed the idea of a double plafond knot. From my available information, this was an entirely novel thing. So I posted my new creation to the main knotting forums, the International Guild of Knot Tyers (IGKT) and the Knot Heads World Wide (KHWW) where a poster from China shared that the two heart plafond is definitely not a brand new idea.
I started tying this knot on the scaffold and for some reason didn’t have my bodkin. Slow and painful going. I got to the second pass through the top single plafond before I gave it up until I got home and could locate one of my many bodkins. Using a bodkin made it all so much easier. So, here it is, tied on the scaffold. Looks good. Did I overlook something? Will I have what I expect when I remove the scaffold? What do you think? 8)
To everything there’s a learning curve, eh? So this time I followed up the loop layout sketch with a path tracing. Looks much better this time. We have complete coverage, all the inputs and outputs are covered and the path is completed by one tracing. Time for string.
So, here’s my second loop layout thought. What do you think? Will this one work?
