second and third order flower hoop knots
« on: September 06, 2022, 10:31:34 PM »
中国结好喜欢/科彩285 posted on zhongguojie.org about second and third order flower hoop knots (THK) where, effectively, the bight count/density changes along a disk form of the knot.

Pictures only in the zgjo posts, but links to video instructions can (sort of) be found there.  Caveat on the video site, the link in the first listed post brings up entirely unrelated stuff.  I suffered through it to see if it was an ad, but the next vid was not knots either, so  :PAlso, I browse the web with a host of security features turned way up (ad blocker, no popups, scripting restrictions, etc), so I can't guarantee that nothing bad could happen to your computer there...  For the extremely paranoid, I posted one pic on Instagram, relevant to the discussion.

second order  the video link there does *not* lead to instructions, use this one
third order the video link at the bottom of the post leads to instructions

I also do everything I can to avoid the use of pins on a board.   ;D

What often kills me with knot vids from Mainland China is their complete unconcern with background noise; whether that's someone watching TV nearby, dinner being made, or someone taking a phone call.  Whatevs!  Carry on and post!!   8)

i noticed the cord and colours, they look fun
soft yet keeping shape 

i am interested in this knot ...

as for the mat patterns, they are eye candy 🤓
