description of a knot
« on: December 12, 2012, 01:52:00 AM »
Hello Dear All,

I intend to make a ditty bag. Found some very nice samples online on the page of the "Knotty Bear" of Barry Brown.

Is there any possibility to get a description how to make it?
Saw that is was featured in the "Knotting Matters"#105

My special interest lies in the pineapple knot.
Can't find it in the Ashley book of knots.

Can anybody help me to find a description for it?

Many thanks.

Capt. B.Hellenthal

Hi Capt.

Here is a pair of links that should provide you with some info to mull over. Probably more than you'll have time for. but I hope not.

For some Pineapple knot tutorials >  And some other things as a bonus.

And here is a member's website who does a great job of teaching and entertaining too. >

Hope this helps and keeps you from being idle.


P.S. Please consider posting in the most appropriate Board for the topic. This is mostly Decorative content. Thank you.

The pineapple knot is in abok in the monkey fist chapter.  I believe it was original to there.
