Over a year ago I scanned the pictures I needed to put together an illustrated step by step set of instructions for the good luck knot. Finally, words have been combined with the pictures and posted to the main site. Up until now there has been no main page for the good luck family of knots. Now I’ve sketched in the basic shape of it. There’s a lot more work to be done, but I think it’s useful and viewable now, so I’m putting it out there.
Let me know what you think: typos and errors, things that are unclear, things that you like, etc.
What with all the good luck knot stuff I’ve been doing, it’s time to fix up the main page and do a how-to or 2 or… But that sort of thing takes time. All the first round of pictures are scanned and need to be processed, text added, etc. See the files as they are worked on. When the pages are complete, they will replace the directory listings. This is a peek under the hood.
Last but not least is the nonagonal good luck knot. More accurately Greek vs Latin, the term enneagonon is more “correct”, but nonagon is the more popular and commonly used term. Plus there’s this whole ennegram/enneagram personality thing to confuse matters. Best to stick with nonagon, am I right?!? 8)
Behold the Heptagonal good luck knot. An alternate term for a seven sided figure is septagon, but in an effort to minimize confusion, let’s stick with “heptagon”.
As I was posting 3, 6, and 8 I felt a twinge of discomfort. Was it OCD? Anal retentiveness? Whatever it was, it is surely related to completism and the collector’s instinct. I wasn’t going to be happy unless I filled in the blanks.
Here’s the first. A pentagonal good luck knot, done with two over 2 crown knots.
