it was really hard to give this post a title. most awkward name ever. can you come up with another? still giggling because i don't know what i just made. but, i am in love with it! i think you should make a thingamagigga yourself!
if you are like me....you'll just try and giv'er a go. so, i'll post a wee DIY diagram on the square knots i used for this. i used 8 strings so that you are working with 2 knots (4 strings each) on either side, then splitting them and adding to your new knot with 4 strands (using 2 each from each of the previous knots) and then splitting again...and so on...that will make your wrap around your shell. it'll all make sense once you try it out.
