9 part Turks head with beads

This is a 9 part 13 bight example that has extra pieces of line with beads interwoven. 

The interwoven strands follow the diagonal weave of the knot.

interwoven grommet

This is an eight strand eight plait grommet made with a single piece of material. The instructions for creating these can be found on the knotworkn web site

This example measures about 5" diameter and required about 25 ft of 1/8" nylon line. 

These braids can be made in various diameters by increasing the number of bights in the grommet.
