Help Please, "reach for the stars"
« on: January 04, 2019, 12:31:36 AM »
Hello world,
My name is Naomi, a few months I came across the "Reach for the Stars" rope mat in David Fukuhara's book, Fancy Knotting an Introduction.
 I really want to make this mat to give to my Sea Cadet Corp when I age out in June. Any help would be appreciated. The description in the book is as follows "This knot is a 11 bight by 14 bight mat designed and tied for the 20th Anniversary celebration of the formation of: "international Guild of Knot Tyres". It is mounted as a wallhanging and has been sent to the guild for permanent display."

Once again any and all help is appreciated. Thanks.

Sadly, I cannot find my copies of David's books.  But if your mat is rectangular as it sounds, then these links might help:
If it's round then pictures would help (although, maybe someone else here just remembers what David sent...)
