Double alpine butterfly - working ends.
« on: June 20, 2017, 06:36:23 AM »
Didn't know how to make this one and couldn't find instructions anywhere so made one in the bight and photographed it as I took it apart by the working ends. Good trick that.

Step 1 looks like a cartoon cross section of a gum, tooth and filling. Nice and easy to memorise. Just make sure the two loops that make up the "filling" are interlocked.
The knot will still work if they aren't but it won't be correct and will look squiffy.

Sorry if it seems I'm spamming the forum but I've been really enjoying getting back into knots lately. I've learned heaps and figured out a bunch after diving into Ashley's and playing about with knots for a while. The results could be useful to others so decided to share my experiences. Hope that's ok.

EDIT: Added some cautionary info as these pics could end up in the hands of beginners. Felt it was the responsible thing to do.

EDIT2: Added pics of finished knot. Sorry I left em out in the first place.
