Title: Carrick with a Prolong'ish Capability
Post by: Znex on November 17, 2011, 04:17:07 PM
I just wanted to share something that I have been fooling with. This may already be out there but don't remember seeing it before.

The base is a Carrick knot that can be built longer just by making more initial turns. I haven't taken it too far but could see this being made into a hat band or made even wider with adding a pass or two.

I'm not sure why it would be doing that. I checked it again from another computer and was fine. I've pasted it as a PNG so hope that works for you.

Clicking on the link next to the paperclip did the same thing, but clicking on the thumbnail shows the picture, so that worked.  Thanks!

My first reaction is that it looks a little like magic braiding (for making a 3 strand braid in one cord), but you do two passes so that's definitely different.  Just the image as shown looks like a good way to make a wire ring like a cross between this
