Knotty Notions

The ZGJ -> THCA tests concordance

At this point I was going to do an analysis of the THCA and ZGJ tests, then synthesize a program that combines the two… But then I (re) found the Japanese tests which I am now in the process of translating. Clearly, I’m going to need to create a spreadsheet.

In the meanwhile, here is a concordance of the test lists from the ZGJ perspective with the knots or projects without correlants left out for now.

ZGJ Learning Chinese knot art grading standards - Basic test
(25 knots + tassel + 11 compound knots or projects)

ZB01 = TB01
ZB02 = TB04
ZB03 = TB02
ZB04 = TB21
ZB05 = TB22
ZB06a = TB09
ZB07 = TB07
ZB11 = TB24
ZB12 = TB10
ZB12b = TB15
ZB13 = TB08
ZB13b = TB19
ZB14 = TB12
ZBA01 = TB20
ZBA05-1 = TBA01
ZBA05-2 = TBA02
