3-bight half hitch mat and inversion ♻️
« on: November 21, 2022, 10:34:27 PM »
and it's 22/11/22,
a palindrome date

tie a reversible knot,
the smallest half hitch mat?

i came across this knot when looking for the smallest half hitch mat.
i think this is it though i'm not sure

 it's pattern is based on a 5-line x 6-bight ring

when inverted, it becomes a mirror-image of itself

also, in the 3-loop half hitch mat,
you may be able to see an ashley published knot,  a.b.o.k #2360,
the 3 overhand knots mat   

i was introduced to half hitch mats by asemery (seeing asemery's work) ☺

more inversion fun:
tie a.b.o.k 2360,
invert,
see what you get

additional note to these ring knots - they can be tied 'down' to form cylinders or loose bead knots   ...
cause they're ring knots

I clicked on the link thinking that it was from asemery based on sentence structure, but then heard your voice and thought "why did asemery speed up his voice??"  8)

agh!, i edit-added the video link at the end when i should've put it a paragraph above,

... anyway i'd be interested in how some of the mats on 'zhong gou jie' would go with an inversion step on them 🙃
