A decorative bend
« on: October 31, 2011, 03:12:56 PM »
   It is very easy to tie : just make the ends of each one of two centrally interlinked pretzel-shaped overhand knots penetrate the side openings of the other.(See the attached pictures).
This is not a knot.

I really like these. I can see getting a lot of use out of them especially when making bracelets.

   Trying to figure out how we can tranform the Double Blackwall hitch (1) into a compact symmetric bend, I met those two interesting knots - similar, in their structure, to the "Decorative bend", presented in this thread. ( See the attached pictures). Those bends can also serve as "4-ends" bends - i.e. two line bends, where all the 4 ends of the knot are loaded.

I believe that the similar "Springy bend", described in :

http://igkt.net/sm/index.php?topic=4188.msg25686#msg25686

belongs to the same group of bends, composed of two symmetrically interwoven Pretzel-like links.
