"Turkish head knots
[ begin my reformulation]:
A REFERENCING SYSTEM FOR REGULAR CYLINDRICAL KNOT (RCK )
Turk's head ( turkshead ; turks-head ; THK ) the words used by STRUKTOR
ambiguous as 99% of knot tyers are just ignoring the
fact that Turk's Head Knot are
QUITE SPECIAL CYLINDRICAL
--- there BY NATURE SINGLE STRAND ( a
Knot CANNOT BE a THK as those multi-strand
---Those THK are unique in the way that they are the only one of the
are O1-O1 in coding
pattern so Column AND Row coded
; they are alone in that TYPE of coding.
in fact it is the cordage route only that is referenced as the pattern
of coding is not taken into accout hence a O2-U2, for example, will get
the same referencing than a O1-U1 so indeed STRUKTOR is right in
speaking of only THK referencing and not of the referencing of the
other REGULAR CYLINDRICAL KNOTS with a different pattern of
coding it is only the referencing of the cordage route when other RCK
The more ( and rarest species ! ) knowledgeable knot-tyers will
remember having seen in this site:
I suggest the introduction of a clear Turkish head knots numbering
Every integer is assigned to only one knot.
Every knot has only one integer assigned.
It's only about the knots which can be done with a single thread.
As it's well known, Leads and Bights are relatively prime in them.
When (Bights) > (Leads) the number will be positive,
When (Bights) < (Leads) the number will be negative.
To the knot B36 L23 we give the number 167.
To the knot B23 L36 we give the number -167.
To assign to any integer a Turkish knot you can use my modified program:
(April 08,2013, 11:00 PM - last correction)
It works on the principle of reverse Euclidean algorithm.
In the opposite direction, to assign to a known knot an integer, you
can use Euclidean algorithm only with subtraction.
About THK see the topics under to get the link to STRUKTOR's page. http://narval.republika.pl Worth your time if only for
you knotting general culture.
A PROGRAM FOR MÖBIUS STRIP the name of the program is
rozeta. ( not rozetta not roseta and not rosetta )

The following quote gives all the needed information; Enjoy !
I developed a new method of manufacturing knots in the shape of the
head of the Turkish Mobius strip.
It has the advantage that it allows these nodes to plait on normal
tools used for ordinary Turkish head knots.
The idea is to add extra bights, which only serve to simulate the half
turn on the cylinder, or a plane and disappear after pulling the knot
and Mobius strip
This method works well for an even number of laps of the leads.
For an odd number of leads, the order of interlaces can be locally
broken, that is why I
didn't take them under consideration.
I did not make a separate index for Mobius Turk's Head knots, because
you can use the index for the ordinary Turk's Head knots, adding extra
Easy to see that for even leads we have formula: extra bights = leads /
