The above article, instructions for 6 bight
Turk's head, is the same foundation knot for the 6 bight heel
knot. I regard it as the most important button beause it is the
foundation for many other knots and buttons.
If you are interested in learning more about this useful knot,
please refer to The Art of Braiding,
The Bosal 1, Revised, pages 54-56, Figs. 1-23.
For those interested in learning to braid
the herringbone interweave and/or the gaucho interweave for the
6 bight Turk's head, please refer to The
Art of Braiding The Basics - Second Revised Ed., pages 37-39
for herringbone interweave and pages 40-42 for gaucho interweave.
For more interweave variations, refer to
The Art of Braiding, Romal I.
The reversed 2nd interweave is on pages 15-17 and the easy double
interweave is on pages 18-20.
