Part 6: Working up the complete knot


<--part 5
6.1 The knot has been removed from the tube and most of the big loops have been worked out. This process is the same as illustrated below. Keep the cords parallel and even as you work.

6.2 As you work up the knot keep an even tension on the cord.



6.3 Here the slack loop is on the right set up to pull through to the left side. A starter loop has been made with the fid.


6.4 The slack loop has been pulled most of the way through the knot to the left.




6.5 The loop is pulled through to the left and a starter loop has been made on the right.

pre-made herringbone rope bracelets are available in these online shops:
WhatKnotShop on Etsy
WhatKnotShop on Zibbet



6.6 The slack loop has been pulled most of the way through the knot to the left.

6.7 Work the loop from side-to-side around the knot. Each time take a small amount of extra slack out to the weave. The pull through loop will gradually enlarge as you work it around.

6.8 Since this is a 5 part knot there will be 5 trips around the circumference for to reach the end.
