The Tea Cup Knot is one of the products of my explorations into three dimensional decorative knots. Starting off as a woven bight variant of the Good Luck Knot, its finishing technique makes it so much more!

Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/Paracord-Fusion-Ties-Volume-Bundles/dp/098555780X The Spectrally Clustered Crown Sinnet is a relatively easy way to add a clustered color orientation to a standard Crown Sinnet. Although the example shown demonstrates the tying technique with three colors, the tie can just as easily be made with four or even five colors, creating a cascading color effect like no other crown sinnet before.

The Ashoka Chakra Knot is another fusion knot, created via a combination of techniques shown in my book (Decorative Fusion Knots) and others shown here, on my YouTube channel. Similar in appearance to one of the 33 edicts depicted on the pillars of King Ashoka (an ancient emperor from India); my hope is that this knot will help round out your knowledge of fusion knots and, more generally, symbolic sacred knots. Coming soon to Tying It All Together.
Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/Paracord-Fusion-Ties-Volume-Bundles/dp/098555780X The brainchild of Philip Slattery, "Slatt's Rescue Belt" is a clever application of a standard crochet. More popularly seen expanded and used as the means to create a rope doormat or scarf, the rescue belt is a slick way to create a shoulder strap, which can easily be undone to allow use of the rope that created it.

Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/Paracord-Fusion-Ties-Volume-Bundles/dp/098555780X The Guitar Bar is so named because of its visual similarity to the neck and frets of a guitar. Sturdy and attractive, the bar has a less than obvious start; still the attached video should help you along to understanding its construction. Knot and video by JD of Tying It All Together.
Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/Paracord-Fusion-Ties-Volume-Bundles/dp/098555780X The Fractal Sinnet is the fusion of the Zipper Sinnet and the Thorn Branch (TB) Sinnet "Elbow" technique. Combined, these two knot components merge to create an innovative tie that is stylistically greater in appeal than the sum of its parts. Not only integral in the creation of the fractal pattern shown in the video, the TB "Elbow" is also a slick way to make simple bends in an otherwise linear Zipper Sinnet.
