Mixed knots
« on: January 07, 2008, 01:44:30 AM »
I'd noticed a while back that the sailor's breastplate or carrick mat is a good way to start an ocean plat, and realized that any turk's-head mat could have a prolong-knot tail added to it if you lead the ends out instead of "completing" it.

Here's an example of what that can lead to:

Interestingly, it was not possible to complete it in a single line until I gave up on making it symmetrical. :)
