A Pineapple Knot Variation.
U

A 42 part x48 bight 6 Pass, Type 3 Pineapple Knot with a varied interweave.

This Pineapple knot variant (pictured above) is built up from a Standard 27 part x 24 bight 3 Pass, Type 3 Pineapple Knot. This being made with three interwoven 9 part x 8 bight Casa Knots, all in one dark colour; Black gives the best contrast with this knot. For instructions and more information on this and other Pineapple Knot Types, a copy of “Introduction to Turk’s-Head Knots” by Tom Hall will be found invaluable. The Interweave is made with three 5part x 8 bight Casa Knots, all in one light colour; White gives the best contrast against the Black strands. Here is the Under and Over sequence for the 4th, 5th & 6th passes of this knot. Please note; the first and last under in each pass marked like U3* & U4* have the strands going under the same parts to finish the pass. The X numbers X6, X8 and X9; are a strand going under several crossing parts at the top and bottom of each Half Cycle.

Half Cycles will be numbered in Red to help identify the correct pictures to go with the Under / Over sequence. Note: not all Half Cycles have pictures and I hope the pictures I have included for reference will give a good indication of what is going on.
