Title: Interlocked 3 lead Turks Head knots Tutorial
Post by: asemery on September 04, 2015, 12:00:03 AM
This tutorial will also work with any of the 3 lead Turks Head knots that start with the 5 bight base (3L - 8B, 3L - 11B, etc.) Just follow the same sequence of skip a bight, Over,  Under pattern as shown in basic tutorial.

First tie a 3 lead 5 bight Turks Head knot.

If you turn the knot inside out you get a very different look.
