Coral snake pattern
2 50-inch brown strings
2 40-inch black strings
1 40-inch yellow string
2 40-inch red strings
Legend: L=left, R=right
Arrange the strings so that they are in this order:
- Starting with string #1, knot a turnaround stitch (L-to-R, R-to-L) around string #2 to make the L border.
- Make regular double knots with string #2 onto strings 3, 4, 5, and 6.
- With thread #7, knot a turnaround stitch (R-to-L, L-to-R) onto string #2 (which is now the string adjacent to #7). This is the right border.
- Repeat steps 1 through 3 until you reach string #6 (the last red string), making sure you knot a turnaround stitch at the end of each four regular double knots.
- Throughout steps 1-4, you knotted going from L to R, after the last red string or the 6th string in the illustration above you will now knot from R to L.
- You will basically do the same thing, but in the opposite direction. With string #7, knot a turnaround stitch onto its adjacent string.
- Make four double knots with the 2nd string from R onto 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th.
- Make a turnaroud knot.
- Then repeat the entire process until the desired length.
- Dont forget to tie a turnaroud knot at the end of every four rows of regular double knots. The turnaround knots create the border.
- In this pattern, the coral snake zigzags at reds and blacks.
