Those are really nice. But I'd like to see the tutorial in the tutorial section, rather than a link to one.

Here you go

 Here is how it is done
Start with a crown knot - pull tight

Underneath tie a wall knot - each strand goes underneath the adjacent counterclockwise strand  Do NOT tighten

Bring each strand below the neighboring wall knot (at A)and up through the next (at B) - repeat remaining strands

Bring each strand across and down - underneath 4 strands

Tighten and trim ends.  The 4 strands of the last crown knot (step one) are visible in center of knot.
