This is an experimental design that combines a simple sennet braid with the edge binding technique used in the design )strata( work. The overlapping weave is an eight strand braid built on a core mold. (8x8x1) The cords are laid parallel in between the two areas of braid then bound together with four ply nylon thread.
The edge binding causes the bound cords to assume a stiffer form which in turn creates the rectangular shape once this knot is released from the circular form of the mold.
Size is easily adjusted by substituting a different core mold size.
