Day 214 : Hunter

Day 214 : Hunter - One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett

Day 214 : Hunter

Today's button is another knot - this time one that my old book calls a "Headhunter's Knot". I think that's probably not ok these days, so I have shortened it down. The book also states that the knot was used as decoration on spears, which is pretty interesting if true. 

I love old technique books - probably have too many! But I also like the way some of them are written, with little stories and so on.

I've used the fine cord that we stock, so I doubled the knot instead of making it too little, and used two No 95 moulds to make a little barrel shape.
