Part 8: Completing the double
Most of the slack is worked through. There remain some strands to double up.
Pop the knot off the mold and use the fid to complete the doubling. This makes it easier to flex the knot fabric and thread the cord.
Here the knot is completely doubled but is a bit messy with uneven tension and shape.

At this point the knot is placed on another mold and worked up to the final, even tension using the round jaw pliers to grab the individual strands. < go to previous page
