Having a play trying to recreate the lovely interwoven two strand '16 x 6' chevron (Brian Kidd ?)

I think the starting point is here for the first colour -

http://data.oreilly.com/jallwine/knots/?bights=3&parts=8&coding=%2F%2F%2F%2F\\\\&sobre=true&over_color=peru&under_color=silver&miter_color=peru



Then start with the second cord on the bottom between 1 and 2 and follow the track but use the simple rule 'Over overs and under unders' - the first four cord you cross are overs, so go over them, the next four are unders so go under them coming out on the top between pins 2 and 3.  Turn and cross over the top of the next three overs, but then notice the very next cord is the first run of the second colour and it is 'under' so pass under it, then back over the fourth and under the next four unders - and so on to the end.

It actually creates the second colour chevron in the opposite direction

Dear All,

Tim brought this thread to my attention as part of the website review feedback.

I apologise that I didn't notice it at the time; it coincided with my Mother coming to live with us while she was seriously ill, and so I missed Derek's request to add it to the Download page.  I've flagged it up for Mel to do the technical bit.

Thanks, Tim, for your courteous reminder :)  I'm also putting a note on the Computing Board to say it's there.

Regards

Thanks Gleyns,

Tim showed us how to use the grid maker for the single strand Matthew Walker knot, too. It's really an awesome tool!!!

Here's a version I have not let out to the public yet.



Grid is by TJ Bartruff... I just modified the grid to what I needed for my uses.

I did not make the Chevron though. I chose to stay with the simple at the time of creating these little monsters for the simple purpose of mass production, sort of.

Brian...

Cool Brian; is that a cork layer on top of a hard (wood or pvc) dowel so you can use stick pins??? Ingenious!

I was not the first to think of that. The Abook gave me the idea to roll some cork around a mailing tube.

http://www.igkt.net/downloads/

It would be nice to be able to add some credits to this program. Also, is it open source or just freely distributable?

I also noted that there are 2 missing closing </div> in the index.html - 1 to close the last sub-panel and the final one to close the panel wrapper. Corrected in the online version if you just want to grab the source of that page.

You can only use it with Fire Fox Browser. Open source I don't know. But I do have it for download on KHWW. Credits should go to Tim Allwine & Son...

Hi,

I realle like the Turkshead tying program.
I have one question though. In the Diagram I can fill in Width and Height but what does it mean? Is it inches, mm, cm? Because I print the template I can not make out what size it is?

Thanks,
Erik

It's in pixels. I have a website I use to help with conversion from pixels to inches.

The program is really nice, but the cookbooks and tools at knottool.com is good for tying the more complicated turk heads. You can get your own designs from the program and tie them on the tools. Highly recommended stuff... :)
