How to tie a Turk's Head

How to tie a Turk's Head
Uses: The Turk's Head (ABOK # 1303 - 5, p 232) is widely used as a slide, or woggle, for scout's scarves. Tying it: The Turk's Head is usually tied around the hand. For the demonstration here, the braiding was performed round a piece of wood and the work was rotated as the braiding advanced. Variations: There are many variations on the simple Turk's head. With a large enough loop, many more braids can be created before making the end follow the lead of the first round of braiding; more than one strand can be used; and the number of times the end follows the lead can be varied. Braiding a Single Rope Demonstration: The process of braiding using a single end is readily understood by practicing Braiding with a short length of rope as shown here. Turk's Head Beads Turk's Head Beads: The Turk's Head can also be used to make a string of beads - not unlike a Rosary. Finishing: Traditionally scout woggles were not secured. WARNING: Molten nylon is dangerously hot.
