Bullwhip # 1 of 3

Bullwhip # 1 of 3

Here’s the first finished bullwhip (of the three I’m making for myself):

On thing that was fun for me when making this bullwhip was the heel knot.

This knot is a  two pass 7 X 6 knot with a black interweave. I’ve always wanted to do a  knot like this, but until now I’ve only done it as a one pass 7 X 6  with interweave.  From a distance you really can’t tell the difference between a one and two pass with the inteweave, but close up you can see the two white strands (passes) between the black strands.
