From John RICHINGS : TWO
Attached are pics of pyramids made up from 80mm
The green is 3 sided plus base, the blue is the classic 4sided.
Both are 2ply using 1.4mm cord and are respectively 900 and 1200 facet
Sorry about the distortion to the square base...........I made a card
template and the filled it
with expanded polystyrene.....a la Stefanos...but in expanding it’s
The Knot is made on a 10cm high egg, is 594 facets and 3 ply (2 cords
at 1.5mm and 1 cord at 2.5mm). I then “prepared” by painting it with
gilding size. The final operation is applying the gold leaf.....using a
soft flat artist’s brush to pick up the gold leaf, having first brushed
the brush against my hair for static electricity. The easiest part was
the red ribbon bow.
From Jan VOS ( also see
) ABoK #2996 turned into a bracelet !
This is the abok 2996 , a
double edged 8 strand, 24 bights braid,
turned into a bracelet and then doubled.
I join the ends of the braid
together to double it.
This is now done with 8 strands, but it
must be possible to reduce it to 4 or two strands.
It has a herringbone look, but then it would need a 25 bights
( and one strand).
I think it is possible to draw it in either
ariane or rknotbuilder, not yet
From John RICHINGS : "further beyond
ABoK#3082 " ( further certainly but IMO
and no less : farther too )
After the 82-STRAND ( for which I put a link to the table ) here John
strikes with a
127-STRAND in 7 colours ( rainbow ) in a 7-POINT star braid

Bay bracelet I made with the only
difference that I didn't use the six-strand half-round braid but 3
double lines o1 crowning.I used 1.2 mm cord and it costs me many hours
on making it.I had used magnifying glasses to make the star knots and
the matthew walker.Its much smaller than it looks.[end quote] picture
