A Guide to the Multi, Single-Strand Cruciform Turk’s Head by Harold Scott

IGKT 2004 ISBN 9780951550670

This booklet combines, updates, corrects and augments the author’s two original works, namely On Various Cruciform Turk’s Heads (1997) and Sliding Template Method for Designing Cruciform Turk’s Heads (1998), as well as the supplement (2001) to those publications. It consists of 34 x A5 pages, in a soft cover, containing 35 individual line drawings, 7 tables of data, and 6 scanned images of completed projects; all of which enable the Turk’s head devotee to plan and tie knots that are T-shaped, crucifix and cruciform, or right-angled (knee-shaped). More ambitious shapes described and explained are a Celtic cross, a ship’s wheel and a globular design. There is even a 5-branch candelabrum. Whether you are a dedicated Turk’s head practitioner, or an all-round knottologist, I recommend you take the earliest opportunity to obtain a copy of this unique booklet.
