Tapered Turkshead
« on: August 31, 2015, 03:35:28 AM »
I was asked to work on a project that will require a fairly long tapered turks head.   Is there any software out there that will help me design the knot i need?

Hi Berdar,

I don't know of any software, but I have designed multiple bight Turks Heads that have 24 bight, 12 bight, and 6 bights all in the same knot.  My design was intended to be a mat, but by adding leads, it could be tied as a tapered Turks Head.

What are you thinkng you need for the number of leads and bights in each stage of your project?  The rule of design of a multiple bight Turks Head is that each succesive smaller stage has to be a divisor or the larger stage.

Simple asymmetric cone system.
