ABoK #1388 (page 251) pattern as transcribed by Norbert printed and mounted on a 10 3/4" circumference cardboard tube. Inside the tube is a foam plastic pool noodle segment that holds the slack cord and provides a mounting point for the spindle. Note the grey and white outlines showing the routing for the two cords required to create this knot.
The black cord is laid out first using the push pins to hold the cord on the pattern. The orange cord is laid out observing the required over and under relationships.
The knot has been partially drawn up and removed from the mold. At this point it resembles a rat's nest and any errors are undetectable.
