|The visually stunning Edredge knot|
|After a dictionary full of inappropriate language during a few tries |
over the last couple years . . . I finally got it!
Last weekend, one of my friends on Facebook brought it up that he was trying to learn to tie the Eldridge. Perhaps it was a sense of competition, or maybe boredom that weekend, but I finally found an illustration that worked for me, and succeeded during my second attempt. I've tied it several times since. I finally got it!
|How to tie an Eldredge knot|
I was so happy to have finally, excuse the pun, untangled the mysteries of the Eldredge knot, that I found a few more really interesting tie knots you might enjoy. I'm going to put up a short series over the next few weeks, and share a few more of them. Perhaps, as they have me, they'll encourage you to step up your game a little. We can't let these young Masons show us up--even old dogs can learn new tricks.
The good news is, of all the knots I'm going to cover over the next few weeks, this one is the hardest to master. If you can figure this one out, you shouldn't have any trouble with any of the rest of them.
This is the first installment in the Knot Head series--you can read them all here.
