From Stefanos FANIDIS : a new bracelet made on the cordage route of a Standard
Herringbone-PineApple Cylindrical Knot *but* using another coding than the Herringbone

As you will immediately see ( ROTFLOL ! ) this is made on
a Standard Herringbone-PineApple Cylindrical Knot *but* using an other coding than the
one yielding a Herringbone pattern

Almost as immediately you will have realised that it is a 2-PASS  TYPE I ( TYPE ONE )
SHPK cordage route.

Given the high pile of stupidities about the TYPE I see EVERYWHERE you will do well
to refresh your learning of those knots by studying :  about TYPE  and  (2nd topic) about
Please while studying those pages keep in mind that Shaake use the HORIZONTAL
MANDREL frame of reference ( as RKnot Builder does ) but that ARIANE use the
VERTICAL CYLINDER frame of reference this change HOW the route of the Half-Period
are SEEN ! )

From Joseph ( Joe) BENNETT
already seen in Friends-page_13 this frame, quite
intimidating with the high quality of craftmanship demanded by such work.

looks a lot better than my less than perfect photography might suggest
well well well I would not have said "less than perfect"

THE frame in a 3 pictures slideshow

[open quote]
             Here is a frame I finished recently. It measures approximately 3'x2'.
The print is 'At the Helm' by Danny Hahlbohm'.
In looking for part of the knotwork to reflect the religious/nautical aspect of the print, I chose
the Cross of Lorraine amalgamated with Skip Pennock's anchor.
These flat knots are 3-cycle.
The frame looks a lot better than my less than perfect photography might suggest!!!
Best regards,
Joe Bennett.
