Start with the turks head knot four leads, three bights,
Doubled and tightened.
The left-over string is twisted together
and spliced back into a four strand, round braid,
all the way back to the knot.
To finish, I tucked the strands through the knot
out at the place of the eyes.
There they where cut and melted.
