Tutorial for finishing the LLK
Tutorials I have seen are not really into much detail about the
tying of the LLK, so I hope this will help with some of the
details a bit.
1: The 8 strand wall knot ready to start on the LLK
2: 4 of the 8 strands are all that are used in the next step so
I only used every other strand.
Make a 4 strand crown knot as shown in pics 3 thru 6. Be sure
to lay strands as shown. The strands on the left side (X) of the
four used to make the crown knot are the ones that are
followed or paralleled to complete the not in later steps.
(See larger pictures for "X'es")
3: (see step 2)
4: (see step 2)
5: (see step 2)
6: (see step 2)
7: Tuck each of these 4 cords along side of the cord to it's
left- Over 1 Under 1 for now.
8: Side view showing following of cord on left side, Over 1
9: Remaining 4 cords ready for final interlace
10: Lace cords as shown Under 1/ Over 1 and to the RIGHT
side of opposite cord
11: Cords shown in finished position.
12: Next set goes Under 1 / Over 1/ Under 1 / Over 1 and to
the RIGHT side of opposite cord
13: Both cords shown in the proper Over Under sequence.
14: Tighten and even up cords as much as possible.
15: The cords should all be in position now to follow the
cord on it's left, creating a doubled knot.
16: Continuing the doubling process.
17: Continue following the cord on the left in the
Over / Under sequence
18: Following cord on left side.
19: Continue with all 8 cords until they are all on top of the
knot. You will reach a spot were one more under will start
tripling the pattern,
20: That is when you go down through the edge of the knot
21: Continue now taking all 8 cords through the edge of the
knot under the doubled section.
23: Last cord going through edge of the knot.
24: All 8 cords through the knot.
25: Finished knot ready to dress and trim cords at bottom
edge of LLK.
