Two Color TWISTED Solomon Bar

7:20 AM | Labels: , |

Well my own curiosity got the best of me and I couldn't wait to see what a Two Color TWISTED Solomon Bar would look like. So I got up today and made one...
Whats the difference between a Straight Solomon Bar and a Twisted Solomon Bar??? Well as the name suggests the Twisted Solomon Bar is TWISTED... To make a Straight Solomon Bar you alternate left and right cords going in front of the knot. So if you start with the left, going in front of the knot, while the right goes to the back of the knot. The next knot will be right goes in front while the left goes in the back...

With the Twisted Solomon Bar you will only go ONE direction. If you start with the left going in front of the knot, you will continue all the remaining knots going left in front... It really does not matter which direction you go... left or right. It's a matter of preference. Going left will twist the knots one direction and going right will twist the knots in the opposite direction.
In this picture you can see the RED cord is starting on the left and is going in front...


Once you tighten the knot, you will see the RED cord is NOW on the Right and the BLACK cord is NOW on the LEFT. To continue with the Twisted Solomon Bar I am always going to cross the LEFT cord in front of the knot.
Here you can see the LEFT cord passing in front. The next knot the RED cord will be the LEFT and will go in front.
Continue making the knot passing the LEFT cord in front of the knot.

  
After a few knots you will see the Twists begin to form.




This is what a Two Color Twisted Solomon Bar will begin to look like.

Continue tying the knot keep passing the LEFT cord in front of the knot.

And here you have it...

on my screen, for some reason, the text is showing the same color as your back ground, making it difficult to read the previous posts. Just in case someone would like to converse :)
