Knot work around the house, something for inside...

The previous blog post was for some decorative knot work outside the home, this time I added some inside the house with a simple three lead Turk's head knot around the top of a stair banister.

I used about 5 feet of 2mm cord/mini blind string for the tripled eight bight knot, tied and tightened in a groove at the top.

Whether you just want a single small accent knot, or to go nuts and cover lots of surfaces, if you look around inside your home, you'll see lots of potential for knotty projects, like the stair banister, handrails, spindles, or added to lamps, bed posts, drawer pulls, structural support poles or columns, plant stands, chair legs/arms, etc., and using glow-in-the-dark paracord makes for another cordage option...

And another with a three pass Spanish ring knot.  Bud Brewer's photo tutorial can be downloaded from the Knot Heads World Wide website.

I was wondering if you knew of a good website to go to that would show a good tutorial on how to do a small turks head knot or gaucho knot like the one yiu use for smaller items. The turks head has been really difficult fir me to wrap my head around. Thank you

@jimmyd, Try looking through some of the YouTube videos on Turk's head knots, the IGKT, KHWW , or Animated Knots sites.
