I'm trying to remember a knot that I learnt in a crafts workshop to build a himmeli : a himmeli is a construction in straw (image example: fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Himmeli), a thread goes through the straw to keep it together. The knot I learnt was to join a new piece of thread,when you ran out of thread. The knot I was taught was called "Kankurin Solmu" in finnish (it translates to "Weaver's Knot). I found the following diagram of the "Weaver's Knot" on a finnish web page (punomo.fi/kasityotekniikat/kankurinsolmu), but I just can't make out how it is built from the diagram.
Do you think that the knot in the photo that I post here corresponds to the so-called Weaver's knot of the diagram punomo.fi/kasityotekniikat/kankurinsolmu? (something doesn't seem quite right to me but I can't remember exactly the knot I was taught and I can't really make out the diagram). Does the knot in the photo of my post seem viable as a knot to join thread? MANY THANKS

    Can you tell us more about this knot? Have you found it in use somewhere or did you tie it yourself? It is very well possible that this knot has been discovered and discarded many times as unreliable or too hard to untie. – Willeke Jan 22 at 23:04
  • In addition to what Willeke asked, do you know what the function is supposed to be? – RockPaperLz- Mask it or Casket Jan 26 at 1:27
