Small pineapple knot

In this tutorial I demonstrate how to tie a small pineapple knot.

The pineapple knot is one of the most commonly used interweaves for a regular turk’s head. If done in a single color it may resemble a herringbone knot. Usually though, you will make the base knot in one color and then interweave it with another to get that colorful, pineapple-like look.

Since these knots are a bit harder to show in photos, I have made a video for a small pineapple knot. Basically it can cover a very small object, for example a marble. The knot is also often used as a button knot.

The supplies needed

The knot requires very little cord or rope.

I recommend the following tools:

The video tutorial

In the video tutorial below I go through tying the knot. It is not hard at all, as you will see.

The knot is interwoven into a 5 lead 4 bight turk’s head, so be sure to tie one before you begin the tutorial!
